2011 Moonee Valley Fillies Classic Results

March 8th, 2011

It was all about the favourite in the Group 2 Fillies Classic at Moonee Valley Racecourse with Lights Of Heaven showing all her class to bring home the trophy.

The win for the three-year-old takes her career record to three wins from three starts over increasingly tough opposition.

She fielded plenty of bets leading up to the race and the best odds you could get were an even money $2.00 with Luxbet.

Lights Of Heaven had the perfect run from the gates dropping into second behind the lead of Always Discreet.

The field was content to hold there positions pretty much the entire trip until they rounded the final bend.

Lights Of Heaven was quick to pull up alongside Always Discreet but found it a little tougher to find that extra kick to draw clear.

In the end she just had that little bit more though to take the win from a very courageous Always Discreet in second place and Absolutely which made up plenty of ground to run third.

Sean Baile Mor the 100 to 1 chance wasn’t far away either rounding out the first four.

From here trainer Peter Moody says that depending how quickly she recovers he will focus her on either the Australasian Oaks in Adelaide or the AJC Australian Oaks in Sydney.

At this stage he think an Australasian Oaks attempt is probably the more likely option.
