Two-year-old filly Misteed wins Randwick trial
EXCITING two-year-old filly Misteed impressed in winning Heat 7 of the Randwick trials on Monday, working home between horses to run the fastest two-year-old trial of the morning.
Showing immaturity and running a touch keen, Misteed displayed good raw ability in being hitting the line best to beat home the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott-trained pair of Whiskey Shooter and Boudicea Belle.
The Exceed And Excel filly was a $150,000 purchase from the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale, and is from the same family as US Group 1 winning filly November Snow, and NZ Champion Sprinter Bounding.
Everest winning jockey Kerrin McEvoy did the steering, and was pleased with the display, predicting a bright future ahead for the filly.
“I was happy with her. She jumped out well and we got into a good position,” he said.
“She rounded the trial off nicely and will only improve from that. She’s got a nice quick action and I like the feel she gave me.”
On a busy morning at headquarters, two-time Group race winner Gold Symphony returned to the trials after disappointing in Brisbane on his last start, but he showed no hangover from that performance, as he eased to second position in the opening trial.
Peter Snowden was happy with what he saw. “He trialed nicely today,” said Snowden. “I’ve nominated him for the Lough Neagh Stakes in Brisbane on the weekend and we’ll just see how he comes through this before making a decision.”
