Sheez Dashing to an easy Cranbourne win

Oct 13, 2017

Fortune didn’t favour her at her previous run and luck played little part in Sheezdashing’s soft maiden victory at Pakenham.

Sheezadashing had improved at each outing in her second racing campaign but she was held up at a crucial stage when second at Wangaratta at her previous run but she faced no traffic issues at Pakenham.

Trainers Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra kept Sheezdashing at 1400m in the Peter & Lavella DaRose Maiden Plate but the filly raced wide for the entire trip.

Jockey Katelyn Mallyon was happy to keep Sheezdashing balanced and travelling kindly three-wide in the early and middle stages before easing the daughter of Myboycharlie out further to build momentum on the home turn.

Sheezdashing sprinted well but wanted to lay in down the home straight. However, she packed too much quality for her opposition, scoring a comfortable win despite Mallyon stopping riding to straighten her a few times late.

“She has always shown a bit at home and I’ve always liked her from day dot,” Mallyon said.

“It’s just good to see her sort of put it together but she’s just so green and on one reign and I wasn’t even able to use the whip.

“She proved too strong and it was nice to see her win her maiden tonight because I think there’s bigger things in store.”

Sheezdashing’s win provided a bonanza for her owners after earning $37,250 in prizemoney and bonuses, taking her stakes tally to more than $45,000 in just four starts.

Congratulations to Sheezdashing’s owners and all involved in the talented three-year-old’s maiden success.
