Sibling To Mimi Lebrock On Debut Today
Forgiveness (Show a Heart-God Love It, by St Covet), a full-sister to former talented juvenile Mimi Lebrock, will make her belated debut at Hawkesbury today in the Hawkesbury Race Club Motel Maiden Plate (1400m). The Bart & James Cummings-trained 4YO mare is having her first start since being purchased by the legendary octogenarian trainer for $270,000 at the 2011 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale. Leading jockey Hugh Bowman takes the ride on Forgiveness, who has had three recent barrier trials in preparation for her first racetrack appearance. Forgiveness is the third foal to race from the St Covet mare God Love It, which includes Magic Millions winner Mimi Lebrock. Mimi Lebrock, who was also trained by Cummings, won 5 of her 16 starts for $1,152,095 earnings. Apart from her 2YO Magic Millions success, she also registered victories in the Gr2 Tristarc Stakes, Gr3 Let's Elope Stakes, Listed Sheraco Stakes, as well as Gr1 placings in the Myer Classic behind Forensics & the Emirates Stakes behind All Silent.
