Damselfly's Kept



Tough , Honest NSW Mare - Winner of 5 inc Last Start WIN!

20 starts 5 wins 4 placings and just over $70k in stakes to date. Last start winner 27/07 and very well placed by trainer, picking up just over $11k for that win alone! (in BM58 company)

They're not desperate to sell, she's in full work and ready to race again soon. Mitch Beer informs me that she's a sound mare who is lovely to train.

FIT - IN FORM - and you know that time honored racing axiom, "mares in form" - well that applies here! Has whole prep ahead of her, as her winning run the other day was 1st up! Plenty of nice bush venues for her to keep the cash register ticking!
