Sebring Filly Set to Star
Brilliant Sebring filly Bring Me the Maid was last seen finishing third in the Group I ATC Golden Slipper, but showed she would be a major force this spring when resuming to score a stylish victory in the Group II ATC Silver Shadow Stakes at Randwick on Saturday.
Prepared by Peter Moody, Bring Me the Maid made light of the heavy conditions to power clear of Memorial and win the 1200 metre sprint by a length and a half.
“She has trained on nicely from her juvenile year. She has taken the next step and we are very pleased with her,” Moody said.
“Her trials have been good in Queensland and then when she came down here and she was just too good for them.
“It would be hard not to go to the Golden Rose in three weeks, it would be a nice gap off a heavy track run today or we have the fillies path or we can go back to Melbourne.
“There is a heap of options and we will keep them all open at this point.
Bring Me The Maid was a $105,000 Magic Millions purchase from the draft of Fig Tree Thoroughbreds where she was selected and secured by the late Roy Higgins and Wylie Dalziel Racing.
She runs for a big group of very happy owners and has now won three of five starts earning $606,200.
Bred by Murray Murdoch of Fig Tree Thoroughbreds, Bring Me the Maid is the best of three winners from Maid for Me, a half-sister to stakes-placed Patou, the dam of Golden Slipper winner Polar Success.
Maid for Me has been a regular visitor to Sebring and has another filly which was also offered at Magic Millions earlier this year and again bought by Roy Higgins and Wylie Dalziel for $110,000.
Maid for Me has another yearling colt by Sebring to follow.
