Princess Hussey Toughs It Out To Win Her Maiden
Apr 21, 2014
On Easter Monday, April 21, Princess Hussey headed to Caulfield to race in the Guinot Skincare Plate over 1400m. The girl was in the betting market at good odds of $8 with apprentice Harry Coffey on board. The race was worth $35,000 with a Super VOBIS bonus of $10,000.
Princess Hussey drew barrier three and had a weight of 56kg but with Harry claiming two kilos, she carried 54kgs. The Husson filly jumped away and Harry placed her at the front of the field one back and two from the rail. Coming around the bend at the 300m mark the field began to fan across the track and Harry urged the filly to go forward. At the 200m mark, Harry guided the filly to come across to the inside of front runner in Tracey's Image and rode her out to win by 0.3L with Magnus Slipper coming second.
Post race Harry Coffey said "I ended up with a lovely run, I followed Luke Nolen through on one of the class runners of the race and I got out late and Princess Hussey really let down well, in her previous starts she's been grinding but today we got smothered up and got out late and she responded well and it was a really good win. She was freshened up for today and she was just too good."
