Lonhspresso Wins The Listed Straight Six At Flemington
May 24, 2014
Lonhspresso, contested the Listed Straight Six race ran at Flemington over 1200m on Saturday May 24th. The Lonhro filly trained by Darren Weir and ridden by Michelle Payne started second favourite at $5.50.
Jumping from the outside barrier of sixteen the mare began quickly and Michelle settled her at the rear of the field. She stuck to her pre race plan and allowed the mare to find her feet and get her balance. At the 400m mark Michelle began to swish her reins, she had the entire field in front of her, and was six lengths off the leader. At the 200m mark Lohnspresso was well on her way of overtaking the field. At the 100m she sat fourth with Le Bonsir on her inside a length and a half in front. She pinned her ears back and motored past the leaders to win by a long head and a nose in the fast time of 1:09:04.
From her winning performance today, trainer Darren Weir will now assess if he takes her to the Queensland Carnival to contest in the Dane Ripper on June 7th.
This win added not only Black Type to her pedigree page but also $72,000 to her prize winnings giving a total of $305,775 from only ten starts.
ATB would like to congratulate fellow owners Bungan Street Thoroughbreds on the heart stopping win today!
