The bar will be lifted for the progressive mare My Pendant in the wake of her latest success.

Bred and raced by Waikato Stud, the Pins mare was a stylish winner at Caulfield today to earn a black type call-up.

“She’s going really well and is ready to step up in grade,” trainer Danny O’Brien said.

“She’ll go to the Let’s Elope Stakes in a fortnight next.”

My Pendant was given a no panic ride by Damien Oliver after sitting at the back of the field.

“She likes a patient ride and she’s got a good finish once balanced,” he said.

My Pendant came wide at the top of the straight and when the gap presented itself she powered through.

“When it opened up she really exploded through,” Oliver said.

“She’s been placed really well by Danny and she’s putting together a great record.”

My Pendant has now won five of her nine starts and finished runner-up on a further three occasions.

She is a daughter of the Any Suggestion mare My Locket, a half-sister to the Gr.1 Queensland Oaks winner My Keepsake.

It is also the family of the multiple Group One winners Lonhro and Lankan Rupee
