Statue of Liberty’s flying machine, Solchow would have to be one of the best NON stakes winners in the country!
Although she put in another brilliant performance down the straight at Flemington on Saturday, she was denied by a short half head by Devil May Care in the ATA / Bob Hoysted Handicap over 1000m.
A winner at Caulfield on 20 February, the Kel Chapman trained Solchow then finished third in the WJ Adams Stakes-LR at Caulfield on 27 February before her run on Saturday.
The model of consistency, Solchow has now raced on 19 occasions for six wins, three seconds and four thirds, but the telling point is that she hasn’t finished out of the money in her past 13 starts: all of them in the city and four at stakes level.
One thing about Statue of Liberty, his sprinters Mic Mac (7 wins), Hay List (8 from 9) and Solchow all know how to find the line.
