Lady Selkirk claimed an impressive victory at headquarters on Saturday bursting through the pack to take out the 1600m 3yo handicap.The filly by Von Costa De Hero, is a half to stable mate Turnitaround both out of the good producing mare Devon Dancer. After a luckless last start Flemington debut where she almost fell, she certainly turned the tables this time.
Given a great ride by inform apprentice jockey Michael Dee, she jumped well and settled in the first half of the field 3-4 lengths off the leaders.Tracking the Weir runner perfectly in the run, the gaps just didn’t seem to be coming at the 400m but with a patient ride by Dee he crossed to the inside of Justa Hint at the 100m and she pinned the ears back and hit the line strong.
Congratulations to all of her owners, it seems she has plenty of upside to her and it will be exciting to see where the journey with Dancer will take us. She is beginning to rack up an impressive tally with 9 starts for 3 wins and four minor placings and already over $120K in stakes.
