Four Straight for Sebring Filly
The Hermitage Syndicate managed by Anton Koolman is generally seen in the winner’s circle with colts destined for Hong Kong, but it was a promising Sebring filly that carried their colours to victory at Flemington on ANZAC Day.
The Chris Waller trained Egg Tart posted her third consecutive win since resuming from a spell when zooming clear to win the 1600 metre open three year-old event by two and three-quarter lengths.
She settled on the fence behind the leaders for Damien Oliver and accelerated impressively at the finish in the manner of a filly headed for better races.
Egg Tart broke her maiden at her last run before spelling and has now won four on the trot and seems to be improving in leaps and bounds with stakes races in Adelaide no doubt on the radar.
A modest $40,000 Inglis Easter purchase from the Jorson Farm draft for Anton Koolman and Heritage Thoroughbreds, Egg Tart is the second winner for unraced Mrs Windsor, a half-sister to Heart Ruler and daughter of Born to Be Queen, who both won the Group I AJC The Metropolitan over 2400 metres.
Mrs Windsor is also a half-sister to Group I AJC Spring Champion Stakes winner Coronation Day, so longer trips should hold no fears for Egg Tart as she matures.
