Heart Of Glass dominant

Debutante Heart Of Glass gave her rivals a galloping lesson with a brilliant win at Ballarat on Thursday, October 26.

Trained by Tony & Calvin McEvoy and ridden by Harry Coffey, Heart of Glass scored by 4-3/4 lengths in the Magic Millions Racing Women Fillies & Mares Maiden (1000m).

The three-year-old filly, a $6.50 chance, began well from her outside draw and Coffey allowed her to drift across taking the lead coming onto the course proper and she then dictated for the rest of the race.

The favourite Heiress ($3.50) tracked Heart Of Glass and tried to challenge on straightening but was beaten off and had to be content with second, 1-3/4 lengths clear of Sultry Siren ($6.50).

Trainer Calvin McEvoy is excited about the winner’s future.

“She is a nice filly and thanks to Peter and Greg Carrick and the connections,” McEvoy said.

“They have had to be a bit patient.

“We have always liked her and thought we would get to the races a little bit earlier than she has, but she was worth waiting for.

“She has always been a natural, quick and it has probably been a matter of tempering it and getting her to come back.

“Heart Of Glass races in a Norton bit, so she is a strong filly, but I love the way she finished the race off and was strong through the line.

“I thought she was entitled to get tired at the finish with the strong head wind, but she didn’t, and was impressive.”

McEvoy said he thought Heart Of Glass would get a bit further than the 1000 metres of today.

“We will keep her at the shorter trips at the moment, but black type will be the aim at some point.

“Maybe we can sneak her into a race at the end of the spring carnival, a race like the Red Roses.”

Winning jockey Harry Coffey was impressed.

“It was a really good win,” Coffey said.

“Albeit she was at home and knew where she was, and she knew where the winning post was.

“It was a really dominant win, and I loved her stride and strength through the line.

“She will be able to go up in grade and be really competitive.”

Coffey said he had ridden Heart Of Glass in trackwork.

“She trialled here one morning on a wet track with Veight which put a lot of confidence in the team.

“I didn’t ride her that morning, but she trialled really well.

“We actually had her in at Tatura where we thought she would be going there and winning but they called the races off.

“Luckily enough they could come here today and get the job done.

“On today’s win you would imagine she would improve again, and she will be able to go up in grade.”
