North QLD filly looking to equal a Winx record

  • North QLD filly looking to join WInx in an elite club
Boom Nth Qld filly - Cyclone Topgirl

The Lyle Wright trained Cyclone Topgirl can do what only Winx has achieved this season if she is successful in tomorrow’s Capricornia Yearling Sales Two-Year-Old Plate.

Only the mighty mare Winx has won eight or more races in a row this season but the Mackay trained filly can become the first to join Winx in that elite club should she win on Saturday.

Since finishing second on debut in a Maiden at Townsville in October last year, the Changeintheweather filly is unbeaten and gone from strength to strength since recording her first victory at Mackay with jockey Nathan Day aboard. 

Since that win, Day has been the only rider to partner her on the track and shares the seven victories with the filly.

She has amassed over $228,000 in earnings which includes the first prize purse of $73,750 for winning the QTIS 2YO Classic (1200m) in Townsville las month.

The reputable Lyle Wright has done a magnificent job in preparing the talented filly for all of her race starts. While he admits she is the best he has ever trained, he is wary of the 1300m at Rockhampton which will be her biggest test to date. 

Wright’s main concern is the long 600m home straight and looking for a leader. He would prefer that she looks for a sit and hopefully something else will lead them into the turn. 

Whatever the end result, the boom filly is paddock bound after Saturday’s race for a well-earned couple of months rest and relaxation.

Later in the day, the Rockhampton Cup will be run with the locally-trained Balboa Rocks currently heading the market and looking the hardest to beat.
