Highivew’s resident stallion Wrote was credited with his first trial winner last week.
The ease in which the two-year-old filly claimed her victory in the 1000m heat at Waverley came as no surprise to trainer Bill Thurlow who has a good opinion of the daughter of Simply Boogie.
“She had been to a couple of jumpouts and done a similar thing,” he said. “She had shown us a bit of ability so we were expecting her to run pretty well.
“She is a very good type, she has a bit of strength and height and is a nice filly.”
Thurlow purchased the filly off the back of the deeds of her half-sister Boadelle who was in his care before transferring to the Lindsay Park Racing operation in Australia where she has won once and placed twice from three starts as a three-year-old.
Likewise, Thurlow believes his Wrote filly has the makings of a nice three-year-old and is eyeing one start for her as a juvenile before spelling her and concentrating on spring targets.
“She will be a really nice three-year-old I think,” he said. “She is probably not a real two-year-old to be honest but she has enough strength to get away with one run and then we will put her out.
“There are no maiden two-year-old races coming up so she will probably have a run in a set weights and penalties race or maybe even a straight maiden race. That will probably be in the next couple of weeks.
“Then I’ll look at spelling her and concentrating on the spring.”
Though the two-year-old filly is the only horse by Wrote in his stable, the Group One winning son of High Chaparral has made a big impression on Thurlow.
“She is the only one by Wrote I have got and I wish I did have a couple of others because I really like her,” he said. “She has a great constitution and is a lovely horse to work with.
“I think there is a good chance he will leave a top horse.”
