Special At Flemington

Jun 12, 2015

Tough and talented mare Special Miss continues to hold her form and it was good to see her back into the winners stall at Flemington on Wednesday.

Unlucky when held up for runs when contesting the Listed Centaurea Stakes at her previous outing in Adelaide, the consistent six-year-old appreciated a midweek drop in grade.

The second leg of a winning double for our apprentice Jake Bayliss, Special Miss showed good pace from a wide gate - getting into a nice position behind the leaders.

Into the clear straightening, she hit the lead with 350m to go, digging deep when challenged over the final stages.

"She has been racing well for quite a while," Michael Kent said.

"I would love her to get some back type as she is good enough - maybe we will look at the Grafton Cup for her."

Showing a liking for that track when trained in New South Wales, Special Miss has already won three races at Grafton - and since joining us she has been successful at metropolitan level on three occasions.

The winner of nine races and over $185,000 in stakes, Special Miss - who is raced by the Cahill family - is a daughter of Danehill's triple Group One winner Darci Brahma and the Listed winning Centaine mare Wyndam Special.
