The 3 year year old filly by Sweynesse had won at Stakes level in New Zealand prior to a group of Star owners joining with other people to race her here in Australia with Chris where she had 3 times previously to yesterday’s win at Canterbury Park. Brenton Avdulla was complimentary of the filly post race explaining that he felt he was on the eventual winner a long way from home. Like a large number of horses originally trained elsewhere, ONLY WORDS (NZ) has taken a while to acclimatise into Sydney racing, but now that she has that first win on the board, she looks a progressive filly who should “go on with it” from here. It would seem likely that she will seek those Black type races in Queensland in coming weeks.
Congratulations to the winning ONLY WORDS (NZ) connections including our Star Thoroughbreds’ owners Paramount Racing (Manager: Kathryn Wood), Boeara Holdings (Manager: Denise Dunphy), McLeish Family Racing (Manager; David McLeish), Brent Hudson, Judy Hudson, George Ardill, Margaret Ardill, Bruno Calabro, Jaclyn Calabro, John McCrimmon, Krista McCrimmon.
