Glenlogan strike again

The Glenlogan Park sires only had two runners in Melbourne yesterday – but they both scored very impressive victories!

Bradbury’s Luck’s stakes winning filly She Can Skate made it an undefeated campaign and registered her third win on the trot after defying all others in a really gutsy display to hold off the well-performed Octavia at Moonee Valley Saturday.

Bradbury's Luck

Conceding all her rivals plenty of weight, the Bradbury’s Luck 3YO was headed at the top of the straight before getting up off the canvass and refusing to lie down in the drive to the finish line.

“Before today we knew she was quick and we knew she had class,” winning rider Reece Wheeler said not long after crossing the line. “However now we also know she has plenty of fight and a tonne of heart.

“She has a terrific future and I am thrilled for everyone associated with her! It is a great story and it looks like there is plenty more to happen before it finishes.”

She Can Skate, whose dam Caniona has already arrived at Glenlogan this season in preparation for another mating with Bradbury’s Luck, took her earnings soaring above $210,000 and will now be sent to the spelling paddocks to ready for a Spring Carnival assault.

Show A Heart

Show A Heart’s consistent mare Dayita also registered a well-deserved victory when she proved too strong in the $80,000 Travis Harrison Cup one race later.

The rising 5YO mare took her career earnings to within a breath of the magical $250,000 mark for trainer Peter Moody after a “10 out of 10 ride” by apprentice Jake Duffy.

“Mr Moody asked me to give her a dig early and try and settle her closer today,” Jake said. “She did everything I asked and we were always travelling sweetly.

“It was just a matter of timing the run right and the mare was good enough to do the rest.

“I think she will be competitive in longer races as well and any sting out of the ground in the coming months is only going to help her.”

The win by Dayita took her sire’s seasonal earnings above the $3million mark.
