Word’s can’t describe the joy we felt when Too Easy Sis won her debut race at Kyneton Racecourse today.
Just to even have the Bennett Racing filly still with us is a miracle in itself, after an early paddock accident almost cost her life.
Our Head Vet Maxine Brain, together with Leon and the Team spent countless hours just to save her so the thought of her ever racing was a mere pipe-dream.
Slowly she improved to be able to walk, then steadily she mended to miraculously make a full recovery. Then the question had to be asked… should we have a look at the possibility of racing her. After consultation with Maxine and Nathan Bennett, the decision was made to see how far she could get but if she was showing any signs of distress, the pin would be pulled straight away.
The road back was a long one and to see her gallop at full tilt was heart warming. We got her to trial and she showed enough to warrant a race start… and the rest is history!
Today she was ridden a masterful race, something that comes second nature to Dwayne Dunn. He let her just scoot along up on the pace with the red-hot fav, Quesadilla in his rear view mirror. On the corner he woke her up for the effort and she dashed to the front, eventually going to the line to win easily.
She is actually the reason we have formed a successful relationship with Bennett Racing. Troy loved her at the Sales but Nathan purchased her. Troy was so mad on her, he approached him to ask if he could train the striking daughter of All Too Hard. He agreed and in the process he has given Troy and Leon many lovely horses to train. One of them Flemington winner, and Stakes placed Goldifox.
With a stack of babies coming through in the orange, black and white, no doubt the future with Bennett Racing looks bright.
