5 wins from 9 starts for talented mare
Few horses can boast a strike rate like talented mare Baroda. This week she improved her statistics further with an impressive first up win at her home track.
Prepared on course at the Gold Coast by Toby & Trent Edmonds, Baroda extended her winning run to 5 victories when first up over 1200m.
She was partnered by Michael Cahill who readied her for a return to the races with three recent trials.
Baroda was sent for spell following an uncharacteristic below par effort in the Gr 3 Gold Coast Guineas in May.
“Toby & Trent really thought she would win the Gold Coast Guineas, but she never got into the race from a wide draw,” said Ontrack boss Grant Morgan.
“We decided to give her a good spell after the Guineas as she hadn’t had a proper break for a while.
“It’s always a relief to see these nice mares come back and win first up after a break.
“She is a mare we have always had a very good opinion of and we think she can win black type."
Baroda was purchased by Grant Morgan at the 2018 Inglis Classic Sale for $150,000 from the Eureka Stud draft.
"She is an absolutely gorgeous mare. I think she will have a great future at stud when she is finished racing, hopefully with some black type," added Morgan
Her latest victory takes her record to 5 wins 2 placings from 9 starts with earnings of just under $250,000.
