Top filly doesn’t disappoint

Top filly doesn’t disappoint3 Jan 2020

Weight of expectation didn’t hold Probabeel back when the star filly resumed at Awapuni this afternoon.
Only bad luck seemed likely to beat her and rider Opie Bosson ensured that wasn’t going to be a factor.
The Cambridge Stud-raced three-year-old shouldered into the clear at the top of the straight and that signalled game over.
Probabeel lengthened stride to put her rivals away with an impressive display that augurs well for the rest of her campaign.
“We’ve had this race picked out for a while and now it’s three weeks into the Karaka Million Classic,” trainer Jamie Richards said.
“She’ll improve a lot and it’s nice to have her back and to win a race in those colours.”
Bosson said he rode the Savabeel filly a little handier than usual and was confident a fair way out.
“She’s quite a lazy horse and I know she’s got a great turn of foot,” he said.
“Once she was balanced and changed leg she was too good.”
A $380,000 Karaka purchase by David Ellis, Probabeel was making her first appearance since a runner-up finish in the Gr.1 Flight Stakes at Randwick.
