Sisters impress at Albany

Sisters impress at Albany

Impressive Racing made sure the long drive to Albany Racecourse was worthwhile with sisters, Furious Dame and El Furioso both winning over 1050m on Sunday.

 

Making her debut, El Furioso went into the race as a short-priced favourite, after she won her trial on October 19 by 2.5 lengths.

 

Jumping from barrier three, last season’s leading apprentice Lucy Warwick took El Furioso straight to the lead with a rails run.

 

She rolled off the fence as they cornered and was pressured immediately by Scandalous Prince who was first-up in his second campaign.

 

The Gerry Hughes trained gelding hit the lead momentarily, before El Furioso showed the same fight that we’ve seen from her big sister Furious Dame, grabbing back the lead and winning by a ¾ length.

 

The victory although pleasing, left trainer Darren McAuliffe knowing that plenty of improvement was still needed if she’s going to make it to a strong Wednesday or Saturday class race.

 

Four-year-old mare Furious Dame wasn’t going to let her little sister have all the limelight, returning to the track with a dominant victory first-up.

 

Carrying a career high 59kg, and going into the race without a trial, Furious Dame showed that she's back to 100% and ready for bigger assignments this campaign. 

 

It was the Furious Dame of old, showing early speed and then demonstrating the grit and determination that she showed last year when competing in the Group 3 Lee Steere at Ascot.  

 

The 2 length victory over impressive Albany galloper Wild Ruby should see the mare return straight to Saturday company for her next run.

 

Outside of the sisters, Mambokadzi had no luck on return, posted wide for the trip and finishing fourth, while Delray Beach who’s now trained by McAuliffe, looked as though he’ll require more distance to be completive this campaign.
