10 Group Ones
I’M SO DIZZY …… 10 Group Ones in a month!
Dizzy Miss Lizzy’s win in the $150,000 Sales Series 2YO Fillies on May 19th rounded out some incredible Premier racing for the Yearling Sales graduates that included an unbelievable month of Group One victories.
Hopefully it has also ended the weeks of 4.00am driving race finish dreams for the filly’s owner Peter Boag and returned his wife Karen to normal sleep patterns. But with a Jewel’s rematch booked with the Jean Feiss owned Elle Mac, it will be the ‘One Star McGrath’ stable up against the four stars of the ‘All Stars’. The 4.00am’s may not be over just yet guys.
Interesting aside was that after picking out her pedigree in the catalogue, Peter Boag said it was the picture of her on PGW’s website that sold him.
Sales horse’s won 14 races over the two night Met Premier carnival. Eight of them were Group or Listed events, won by Spanish Armada, Spankem, The Devil’s Own, Enghien, One Muscle Hill, Destiny Jones and The Fixer.
