Niffler remains unbeaten after Warwick Farm success

Niffler remains unbeaten after Warwick Farm success8 Dec 2021

Niffler maintained the perfect start she has made to her career for trainer Chris Waller when she made a successful step up to 1600 metres at Warwick Farm this afternoon.

Our homebred daughter of Tavistock had won over shorter trips at Kembla Grange and Wyong in her first two appearances and acquitted herself stylishly in her first metropolitan appearance.

“She won both of her first two starts with plenty of authority and it’s exciting when you get these mares show that ability and patience is being rewarded,” Waller’s Racing Manager Charlie Duckworth said.

“She was stepping out in the city for the first time and to win is hard and to win three in a row is even harder. There is plenty of upside to her as she’s still got some furnishing to do.”

Niffler was ridden by Hugh Bowman, who had her one of the fence with the leaders in sight and, after pulling out three wide before the turn, was too strong in the run home.

“She’s got a great record and still learning, it was a sprint home and that didn’t suit her. She will be a lot better when she is able to go through her gears,” Bowman said.

Niffler was bought out of our Karaka draft by Debbie Kepitis’ Woppitt Bloodstock for $200,000 and is a daughter of the G3 Desert Gold Stakes winner Glamorous Girl, who has a 100 per cent record at stud with seven foals to race successful.

A half-sister to the stakes winner So Elusive and a pedigree that also features the G3 Cambridge Breeders’ Stakes winner Geeza, Glamorous Girl has a two-year-old colt by Tavistock, an Eminent yearling filly and she visited Embellish this year.
