Gr 1 on cards for Fast ‘N’ Famous mare
25 March 2013
Fast ‘N’ Famous’ daughter Our Famous Eve has forced trainer Glenn Old to reconsider his options after the mare posted an upset win in the Gr.2 Windsor Park Stud Japan Trophy. He had originally planned to step the four-year-old up in distance, but will seriously now look at another metric mile outing in the Fiber Fresh New Zealand Thoroughbred Stakes on April 6.
“I was going to run her over 2000 metres, but maybe I’ll keep her fresh now for that Group One at Te Aroha,” Old said. “She’s always showed the ability right from an early three-year-old and it’s just taken me a couple of runs to get her right after Australia,” Old said. “Both runs were tidy and the cut in the ground helped her.”
Our Famous Eve, who races in the colours of her breeders Ancroft Stud, showed her quality last season when second in the Gr.2 New Zealand Bloodstock Royal Stakes and finished a creditable fifth against the older horses in the Gr.1 Darci Brahma International Stakes. She was also fifth in the Listed Sunline Vase before she crossed the Tasman and made one Victorian appearance at Ararat, where she ran fourth, before she returned home. “A lot of the owners live in Australia so they wanted to try their luck there, but things didn’t work out so she came back,” Old said.
With a lightweight at Tauranga, Our Famous Eve made an early move across the top and stayed on strongly after hitting the lead soon after straightening. “The connections wanted me to put the pressure on at the 600 with only 52kg to carry,” rider Kelly Myers said. “We had a sweet trip and she really fought like a tiger.”
Raced by Mrs C J & P H Brown, L Chappel, M Connell, Mrs D & P J Grimsey, J R & Mrs M A Mugavin, J M & T G Stanley, the four-year-old mare has struck three career wins to date and has achieved earnings of over $75,000.
Our Famous Eve represents a Fast N Famous over a Exploding Prospect mare cross. There has only been one runner bred on this cross.
