We certainly did See Him Fly in Tatura Cup

Sep 22, 2018

See Me Fly notched a win for the second successive September with a strong victory in the Tatura Cup.

See Me Fly was a winner at Mornington in September 2017 and a win at Bendigo in May split the gelding’s spring successes.

The six-year-old’s lead-up form was solid with placings in Adelaide and Ballarat either side of a good fourth at Sandown, which left See Me Fly in terrific shape for his Tatura Cup tilt.

Trainers Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra booked apprentice Jessica Payne to ride See Me Fly and the jockey gave the son of Sebring the perfect run midfield to the home turn.

Payne allowed See Me Fly to ease around the leaders on the home turn before the gelding over-ran his opposition to score by a length-and-a-half.

“It was terrific to see him win again because he’s a pleasure to have around the stable,” Zahra said.

“He has racing well this time in and he deserved to win again because he gives his best every time he races.

“He’s done a good job for the owners and hopefully there’s a few more wins left in him.”

See Me Fly’s Tatura Cup win was his sixth in 28 starts and took his stakes tally to more than $134,000.

Congratulations to the team at great stable supporters First Light Racing and See Me Fly’s great bunch of owners and all involved with the honest galloper’s latest win.
