Group One for O’Dianne

O’Dianne will move back up in grade following her maiden success at Ellerslie on Wednesday.
Fourth in the Listed Karaka Million, the youngster led all the way to be rewarded for four previous placings and trainer Stephen McKee is now keen on Gr.1 Courtesy Ford Manawatu Sires’ Produce Stakes start.
“I think she’s a touch better left-handed,” he said. “She deserves a crack and she’s maturing all the time.”
O’Dianne was ridden by her regular partner Sam Spratt, who said it was a straightforward victory.
“She was just cruising all the way, hugged the rail and did it nicely. She’s a big, strong girl.”
