A daughter of Teofilo, Asinarasurged away from her rivals under the urgingsof jockey Sam Clipperton to claim theKathy O’Hara Fillies & Mares Maiden Plate (1400m).
“She travelled really well in the run and got to the front way too soon but he has got a lot of staying potential,” Clipperton said after the win.
“She went right to the line.
“She will take a great deal out of that today.”
Clipperton was midfield at the top of the straight but had light trouble rounding up the leaders.
He extended nicely over the final furlong to score by 1-½lengths over Peter and Paul Snowden trained four-year-oldAnthology.
James Cummings’Hot Streak was third.
It was an impressive display first-up over the 1400m.
Stable representative Darren Beadman said Asinara would be better suited over the ‘mile and a quarter or mile and a half’.
It makes races the ATC Oaks a desirable option if the filly can continue to improve off the debut victory.
“She has got a long way to go [to those big Autumn races] but what she showed today, she has got a lot of scope and room for improvement,” Beadmansaid.
“John usually lets the horses do the talking and we will take little steps at this stage, but she couldn’t have been more impressive.”
The Illawarra Turf Club’s Kembla Classic (1600m) in March is also an option for three-year-old fillies.
