Fall For Cindy proves far too good

Fall For Cindy followed an encouraging first-up effort with a dominant victory at Warwick Farm on Wednesday afternoon.

The Waikato Stud-bred and raced mare’s performance augured well for the rest of her campaign as she was untroubled to put away her Benchmark 72 rivals over 1400 metres.

The John O’Shea-trained four-year-old daughter of the late Sacred Falls had finished runner-up at Rosehill when resuming last month and she easily went one better.

“She gave me a terrific feel and will only improve with a little bit more cut in the track and going up in trip,” rider James McDonald said.

“She’s got a good turn of foot and as soon as we lobbed into a nice spot she was always going to
dash away.”

Fall For Cindy travelled comfortably in fourth place before she peeled three wide at the top of the straight and lengthened stride to put her opposition away.

“She’s looking really sharp this preparation and it will be interesting to see what distance she can get out to,” stable representative Tom Charlton said.

“She certainly looks like she’s got a bright future.”

The winner of three of her nine starts, Fall For Cindy is a daughter of the Savabeel mare Cindy Cee and she is an unraced half-sister to the G2 Cal Isuzu S. winner Sports Illustrated.

Their dam Pin Up is a half-sister to stud graduate and multiple Group 1 winner and successful sire Starcraft and the stake winner and three-time elite level placegetter Forum Floozie.

Cindy Cee has an unraced Tivaci three-year-old filly named Cintivee, a juvenile Ocean Park colt and produced another Tivaci filly in 2022 before visiting Ardrossan.
