The Inglis Classic graduate of 2021 was far too quick for her rivals when leading all the way in The Haymarket 2YO Maiden Plate over 1100m at Ballarat last Sunday.
A clean getaway from the barriers enabled Harry Coffey to lead and dictate for a stylish three and a half-length victory.
The 2YO daughter of Rich Enuff has always showed Daniel plenty of natural ability to be confident, but he was also mindful when good backing came for the runner-up, Miss Passion.
“I thought she would figure in the finish, but when the money came for Moody’s filly you have to take notice from such a strong stable.”
Major stakeholders Francis & Chris Cook purchased the filly and race her in their Mystery Downs Racing & Breeding colours along with other stable clients.
Daniel was thrilled when the filly was sent his way by the Cook family who purchased her for $180k.
“I loved the filly when the catalogue came out, but the price was a little out of my range, so to get the opportunity to train for the (Cook) family was fantastic.”
The best week of any year for all Warrnambool trainers is the first week in May, and for Daniel and the owners of Bubble Palace, the thrill of a runner and potential winner looms large.
