Tavistock Filly Shows No Mercy

Tavistock Filly Shows No Mercy3 Oct 2019

Progressive filly Contrition added performance to an impressive pedigree with early success this afternoon at Kyneton.

The daughter of Tavistock struck a winning blow at just the second time of asking.

She had finished runner-up on debut and relished the step up to 1850 metres to win by a distance.

The three-year-old is trained by Mick Price and Michael Kent junior and was ably handled by Michael Dee.

Contrition was bought by Price for $35,000 out of Cambridge Stud’s 2018 draft to Karaka and is a daughter of Repenting.

The dam is out of a half-sister to the multiple Group One winner Shez Sinsational.

It’s also the family of the top-flight winner Brutus and the black type winner Shinnecock.
