Miss Sunshine too speedy

Miss Sunshine went to the front and gave her rivals a galloping lesson at Ballarat on Sunday, March 24.

Trained by Tony & Calvin McEvoy, Miss Sunshine, backed from $1.90 into $1.30 favourite, flew the barriers and was never seriously challenged in the Pipe Pro Directional Drilling Maiden (1000m).

Jockey Harry Coffey had the three-year-old filly cruising in front, hit the accelerator at the 300-metre mark and she won comfortably by 2-1/2 lengths from Never Let Me Go ($4.20) with Twice As Vain ($9), 3-1/4 lengths away third.

Trainer Tony McEvoy is confident there are better wins in store.

“That was a brilliant win by this filly,” McEvoy said.

“It was really nice to have her back at the races and show us what she had been showing for a long time.

“She had a real confidence boosting win.

“I love the way she used her action, she is a talented filly, but we will take her along slowly.

“She will take great benefit from that impressive performance.

McEvoy congratulated the ownership group on their success.

“Ray and Robyn (Pawsey) had a Group One winner (Veight) yesterday, and now another win today so they are in good form. My Racehorse who are great supporters of the stable and it was great to see many of them on course to enjoy the win, Manfred Krauser, David Davidson and the Widden Group.

“They have been patient with this filly, and I think they are going to see some rewards.”

Winning jockey Harry Coffey said he had not completely followed the instructions of Tony & Calvin McEvoy.

“Tony told me to count to 10 at the top of the straight but I only got to five,” Coffey said.

“I got too excited, I had to go.

“She was really good.

“She pulled up a bit stuffy with her breathing, but I think it was because of how tight a hold I had on her in the early stages.

“Coming back off a long break, I wanted to make it easy as possible for her and she will get great confidence.”
