Said Chris Waller of her performance “She wins races from impossible positions at distances from 2400 metres of an oaks or first up at 1300 metres or today at a classic Randwick mile.
She overcomes track conditions, barrier draws and scrimmages on the turn.
She’s been everywhere and she’s still firing.
“She’ll be off to Melbourne and there’ll be a nice race for her down there.”
