A gutsy effort by improving three year-old Girl Sunday at Newcastle has earned her a tilt at the $400,000 Inglis Scone Guineas in May.
Prepared by Gerald Ryan, Girl Sunday was well rated in front by Brenton Avdulla to score a narrow but decisive win extending her record to 2 wins from 5 starts.
“She was quiet a big filly as a yearling. She hasn’t gone out of whack as some big yearlings can do. She has good size and is a nicely balanced filly with a great attitude whilst she obviously moves pretty well,” said Grant Morgan of Ontrack.
“We didn’t exepct her to be an early type and hoped that she would be the type of filly who would have some longevity as an older horse.”
“The Encosta De Lago breed normally only gets better with time, whilst this filly will one day make a lovely broodmare given her size and pedigree.”
“Hopefully we can get some black type with her going forward.”
The next assignment for Girl Sunday will be at Warwick Farm at Warwick Farm on 4 May, before aiming at the $400,000 Inglis Scone Guineas (1400m) on 14 May at Scone.
Girl Sunday was a $100,000 yearling purchase by Grant Morgan's Ontrack Thoroughbreds from the 2014 Inglis Premier Sale in Melbourne.
