Consistent filly TOO HOT TO HOLD burst back into the winners’ stall with an emphatic last-to-first victory at Doomben Wednesday in the QTIS 3 year old event of 1350m.
In a race run at a genuine tempo, the daughter of SIZZLING weaved through openings before charging home out wide under Anthony Allen.
“She really deserved that,” said a delighted trainer Steve O’Dea.
“Getting back from the gate to find her feet in a fast run race on soft ground really suited her. She’s no world beater but puts in every start so am very pleased for the horse and her happy owners who’ve bagged a QTIS bonus.”
The win was timely after Steve and PROVEN THOROUGHBREDS had secured no less than 5 new babies including 4 fillies, at this week’s Magic Millions QTIS Sale on the Gold Coast.
The O’Dea/Proven combination has been very active at sales around the country this year bagging a total of 14 yearlings. All will be showcased at Sunday’s Kolora Lodge Open Day from 11am. If you’d like to join please contact our team to assist caterers.
The 2019 tally of winners for PROVEN THOROUGHBREDS now stands at 14.
