Pins Filly Rated a Gr 1 Prospect

Promising Patinack Farm-owned filly Pretty Pins might have earned a long-range Queensland Oaks campaign next winter following her grinding Eagle Farm win yesterday. She was perfectly ridden by the in-form Jim Byrne who is a big fan of the Pins three-year-old and believes she has the scope to be a Gr 1 prospect at Eagle Farm during next year’s Brisbane winter carnival.

She’ll definitely get 2400 metres but she needs to mature, he said. At her last run she was never comfortable but it was a different story out there today. It’s difficult for any horse on a heavy track like that, but she was quite comfortable and got a good run. ‘I was able to cut the corner and get onto the back of Our Design and she showed she’s got a big ticker.

Patinack Farm’s stable manager in Queensland, Brett Killion, is unsure where Pretty Pins will head now after winning for the second time in three starts. She’s got a lot of ability and is looking for 1600 metres and further, he said.

But there’s not a lot of races around for her at the moment. ‘The way she won today you’d think she should measure up to the better fillies races next winter.
