Balloons broke through for a well-deserved maiden victory in the third race at Gosford this afternoon. Ridden patiently from the awkward barrier Brenton Avdulla settled the filly near last and allowing the filly to slowing make ground producing Balloons with a weathering burst down the centre of the track to score a strong win. ‘It was a great win Brenton didn’t panic timing his run to perfection. The way Balloons hit the line you would have to think 7 furlongs to a mile will suit her down the track” said a very pleased Kim.
Little Mary went within a neck of delivering a stable double when she finished second in the first race over the mile. After settling in the second half of the field the Duke Of Marmalade filly fought strongly going down by the barest of margins. “Little Mary went great, she’s a big strong filly who is improving all the time and will be better for today’s run” added Kim.
