Laffalong too strong at Cranbourne

Laffalong too strong at Cranbourne8 Jan 2021

Promising mare Laffalong has continued her quick progression in Victoria with the second success of her fledgling career.

Our four-year-old mare was a debut winner in the spring and had subsequently placed twice.

At Cranbourne last night, Laffalong made light of her 59.5kg impost over 1600 metres for a convincing win in the hands of Michael Walker.

She is prepared at Ballarat by Nigel Blackiston and his patient handling looks sure to reap further rewards.

Laffalong was a AU$260,000 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale purchase and didn't make it to the races until she was four due to a paddock injury as a yearling. Her long rehabilitation was overseen by our stud and racing staff in New Zealand.

She is a daughter of Zabeel mare Smiles for Layla, a sibling to Karaka Million winner Xiong Feng and the G2 Light Fingers S. winner Adrift.
