Prom Queen (Super Easy) made an impressive return to the track at Ruakaka on Saturday when scoring over 1200m, her first appearance since a Brisbane winter campaign.
Jockey Sam Collett asked the daughter of Super Easy to extend early in the run home where she pulled away from the rest of the field to score by two and a half lengths. “She’s come back really well and it was a nice race for her to kick-off in. She is tractable and she just rates herself, so she makes me look good. They’re the ones you want to ride and I’m looking forward to it this year.”
Co trainer Kenny Rae was equally pleased, although did confess to some pre race nerves. "I don’t get nervous when I’m at the races, but this horse does make me a wee bit nervous. When they’re fresh-up you never know if they’re coming back or not. She had shown us signs she was back, but you just never know, although in the end she was just too fast.”
Connections were keen to explore a couple of number of options moving forward including a possible start in the Gr.3 Sweynesse Stakes (1215m) at Rotorua on October 20 before she tackles the Gr.3 Lindauer Stewards’ Stakes (1000m) on the middle day of the New Zealand Cup Carnival.
