OnTrack two year-old fillies Always On Show and Foxy Rippa have indicated both have bright futures with strong public trial performances in recent weeks.
Always On Show is prepared at Newcastle by Kris Lees and she’s a daughter of highly successful shuttle stallion Showcasing.
A product of one of New Zealand’s most successful studs, Haunui Farm, Always On Show was purchased at the Magic Millions June Sale on the Gold Coast by Ontrack’s Grant Morgan.
She is a full-sister to Intrigue who was Group 2 placed as a three-year-old in New Zealand last year before crossing the Tasman for a Queensland winter campaign which netted a win over ground on the Sunshine Coast.
Always On Show has trialled twice for Kris Lees for an impressive win on her home track before running a close third after sitting three wide at her next trial.
Foxy Rippa was purchased out of the same Gold Coast sale by Grant Morgan for champion Eagle Farm trainer Tony Gollan.
She is a half-sister to Gollan’s big winning sprinter I’m A Rippa, the winner of 8 races and more than $1 million, with a Magic Millions Sprint among his victories.
I’m A Rippa is the first foal of Derippa and she’s also left the winner Jack Derippa and the placed She’s Our Rippa. Derippa’s other live foal is a colt by Spirit of Boom born last spring.
Foxy Rippa was sent to the Deagon trials on Tuesday morning and she ran out a nice winner in the hands of stable rider Alannah Fancourt.
She comfortably defeated the Chris Anderson prepared Plutocrat, a winner at Doomben at her only race day outing.
