THIS SHAMEXPRESS 3YO FILLY COMES HERE 2ND UP OFF A DEVASTATING 1205M WIN RESUMING IN A SALE MAIDEN. A SALE MAIDEN YOU MIGHT SAY?!?!…..BUT IT WAS NO ORDINARY WIN (WATCH REPLAY BELOW)
She ran last 600m 6.2L faster when compared to ALL Classes Benchmark despite being in a 3 year old maiden race & was 8.9L faster sprinting home here last 600m vs 3 year old maiden grade.
LAST 600M: 33.64
LAST 400M: 22.04
LAST 200M: 10.92
Those are Group 1 class sectionals & you’ve got take factor in she was eased late and the Sale track this particular day was a bit choppy after having copped rain night before.
Busuttin & Young have told me they think she’s clearly the best horse they’ve ever trained and is definitely Group 1 class winner of the future if she can just stay sound.
At $12.00 & $3.20 in The Vanity at Flemington (Race 5-9), she’s a terrific each way bet, you shouldn’t lose on an each way bet, but I’m quietly confident she’ll get the major prize!
