Nettoyer looks towards Melbourne after runaway Randwick victory

Jackson Oldham in Latest News 12 Jun 2017
  • Nettoyer records a dominant 10 length victory at Randwick
  • The Sebring Filly will now look to follow the path of Winx

It’s hard to believe that on a day that included the Group One Stradbroke Handicap, Queensland Derby, J.J. Atkins and The Brisbane Cup, one of the most talked about horses would be from a BM72 race on a Heavy 10 track at Randwick.
 
That’s exactly what happened as the three-year-old Nettoyer who was having just her third start lined up against the older horses over 2000m. The Sebring Filly hadn’t set the world on fire in her first two starts, finishing third and sixth at her first two runs, going around at 80/1 and 40/1. 
 
Jockey Rachel King couldn’t find a position for Nettoyer and she was posted three-wide the trip. Punters would’ve thought their ticket was confetti as the raw filly was entitled to weaken given her tough run on a very heavy track. Nettoyer did nothing of the sort sprinting to the front at the 300m when shaken up. It was clear watching her roll into the fence when struck with the whip that the three-year-old still had a lot to learn but that didn’t stop her powering away from her rivals to win by an incredible 10 lengths. 
 
In a perfect world, this three-year-old Sebring Filly would already have a black type victory to her name. Trainer of Nettoyer, Wendy Roche firmly believes her Filly is good enough to win those races. That makes the fact that Nettoyer went around at 12/1 odds in a BM72 race at Randwick even harder to believe. 
 
Group One races were on the agenda for Nettoyer, however, injury prevented an attack on the Group One Queensland Oaks. A backup plan was for the filly to still travel to Queensland to contest the Group Two Queensland Guineas, however, she didn’t gain a start.
 
“She was being set for the Oaks, but she went lame,” Trainer Wendy Roche said. “She spent seven weeks in a box and I was trying to rush her to get to the Oaks but we obviously failed at that.”
 
Roche said the upside of Nettoyer is huge and her potential is untapped. “She honestly does not know how to gallop properly yet so there’s definitely a lot of improvement to come. I think she probably has the makings of the best horse I’ve trained.” Roche said. 
 
Nettoyer will now be targeted at the Group Three Sunshine Coast Guineas over 1600m on July 1. The Sunshine Coast Guineas was the start of the wonder mare Winx’s incredible 17 straight victories that have included two Cox Plates. 
 
“She’ll probably go there to learn how to travel and then she’ll go to the paddock for three weeks and then we might even look for some races in Melbourne.” Roche said. 
 
Continuing the theme of bargain buys at Yearling Sales, Wendy Roche paid just $20,000 for Nettoyer at the 2015 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale. It’s not hard to see why the Sebring Filly went unnoticed, considering her small and light frame.
