Furlanetto wins again

Promising filly Furlanetto continued to show her appreciation for an increase in distance storming home to win at Ararat on Friday, April 26.

After an easy maiden win over 1600 metres at Swan Hill, the Tony & Calvin McEvoy-trained three-year-old filly went to Ararat to contest the Harvey Norman Ararat Benchmark 58 Handicap over the same trip and again proved too strong for her rivals.

The filly settled at the rear of the field before Aitken asked her to improve approaching the home turn.

In the home straight she exploded to gather in the leaders and win comfortably.

Furlanetto ($8.50) was eased down to win by 1-1/4 lengths from Moon Yanco ($12) with Steal The Sun ($6) a long neck away third.

Stable foreman Finn McCarthy said it was great to see Furlanetto make it two wins in a row.

“It is great to see her finally putting things together,” McCarthy said.

“She has always shown quite a lot at home but was disappointing at her first few starts.

“We’ve started to ride her a bit more patiently and it is showing in her finishes.

“It was terrific to get another win with her.

“She has hit the line really well at her past two starts so maybe Tony & Calvin might look to stretch her out in trip.”

Winning jockey Mitchell Aitken, who brought up an Ararat treble on Furlanetto, complimented the trainers for the ride on the filly.

“I’m thankful and grateful to Tony and Calvin for giving me this win today,” Aitken said.

“She was nice and strong and it was good for her to back it up (after Swan Hill).

“I know they think a lot of her.

“I wanted to get cover early and get her to switch off.

“She was always going to finish off a lot better than she has, rather than settling on speed.

“She tracked into it beautifully. If anything, I probably got going 50-70 metres too early because once she got there she wanted to switch off.

“She is probably a better chaser but went super.”
