Spellbinder Back In Training

Wednesday, 21st May 2014

Smart Kiwi filly Spellbinder (O'Reilly-Scenic Sprint, by Scenic) has returned to the stable of trainer Jason Bridgman to begin her build-up toward a return to racing, reports NZ Racing Desk. "She came back on Monday after a good spell and she's just a great athlete – that's her real attribute," Te Akau Racing stable manager Jeff Dore said. "She's got a big frame, although she hasn't been that robust, but she's a darling of a filly with a great temperament. You wouldn't find a sweeter horse." Spellbinder proved herself one of the better fillies in New Zealand last season, winning 4 of her 8 starts since debuting in September. The daughter of O'Reilly recorded wins in the Listed Soliloquy Stakes and Karaka Mile, as well as a Gr1-placing in the New Zealand 1,000 Guineas behind stable-mate Costa Viva.
