Bolisimo Miss showcased her ability with a dominant win in yesterday’s Eugene Gorman Handicap over 1000m at Flemington.
Bolisimo Miss ran unplaced on debut in January but finished shinsore. A comfortable winner of her maiden at Cranbourne over 1000m earlier this month, the daughter of Bel Esprit came with a telling turn of foot to sprint past her rivals 200m out before going clear to defeat Delegance (Delzao) by a widening two and a quarter lengths.
“She was shin-sore on debut, she lost her head. Nothing went right,” co-trainer Matthew Ellerton said later. “She had six weeks in the paddock and she really thickened. She is not a big filly but she is certainly a compact, powerful girl now. The break did her the world of good.”
“Once she got into clear room, she just quickened like a really
nice filly,” fellow co-trainer Simon Zahra said. “The breaker said she was a Group horse when he broke her in. He might be right. She has to go to the paddock now. She might be a nice Thousand Guineas horse.”
