Sebring Filly Into Slipper
Golden Slipper winner Sebring has been enjoying a sensational run of success and will now have another runner in this year’s Golden Slipper with exciting filly Bring Me The Maid charging home to win the Group II ATC Magic Night Stakes at Rosehill on Saturday.
Prepared by Peter Moody, Bring Me the Maid won in Listed company on debut at Flemington on March 1 before finishing an unlucky third in the Listed MVRC St Albans Stakes at Moonee Valley.
Partnered again by Chad Schofield, who has been aboard her in both previous runs, Bring Me The Maid settled at the rear of the field and when shown clear running in the straight motored to the line making light work of the heavy conditions.
“It was always our plan to be here,” said Moody.
“She has thrived since coming to Sydney and worked really well with Plucky Belle on Tuesday morning. She more than held her own with the older mare and probably worked a bit better.
“She handles all going and she’s ready to go for next Saturday. All I have to do is keep a smile on her face now.”
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 two of three starts earning $189,500.
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 yearling filly which was also offered at Magic Millions and again bought by Roy Higgins and Wylie Dalziel for $110,000.
Maid for Me also has a colt by Sebring born last spring .
