I was pretty impressed with her today, no doubt about it,” Attard said. “The last race, she protested limited company so there’s a lot to be said about that. Today, it’s open business and she proved she’s quality.”

To win a graded race in her 3rd start, I thought that was quite remarkable. I understood we ‘d have to have our running shoes on to beat her, however the journey exercised truly well,” Attard stated. “Saez gave her a great trip. I understand Magic Star got kind of caught inside there and lost a little momentum, however my filly kicked on and she accelerated down the lane.
