MAIDEN PLATE: It's early days in Invincible Tammy's racing career, but it's only a matter of time before the progeny of champion stud I Am Invincible breaks her maiden status.
And today could be the day with the John Shelton- trained filly lining up in this afternoon's Mcphee Print F&M Maiden Plate (1006 metres).
Shelton said she looked good in her first start back in April and ran well to place third last start this month in Grafton, where she pushed forward early to set a good pace but could not hold off a few late finishers.
"She has just got natural speed, she is a well-bred horse,” Shelton said.
"All the offspring of I Am Invincible seem to run fairly well, and so far she is shaping up to be a nice little girl.
"She ran a good race the other day so hopefully she will go a little better today.
"She drew an outside barrier and had to do a little bit of work, but that's how it goes.”
Shelton said Ben Looker will again be in the saddle after steering her around Clarence Valley Jockey Club for the first time last start.
"Ben had a ride to get to know her a bit better so that should help,” Shelton said.
"It's not going to be an easy race.
"Everyday Lady has
had two races for two placings and is from Brisbane so you don't bring a horse down like that for nothing, but I think she will be around the mark there somewhere.”
