Nurse Kitchen Wins Gr2 Fillies Classic
At Moonee Valley in Melbourne, Waikato Stud's Cox Plate winning stallion Savabeel (Zabeel-Savannah Success, by Success Express) added a Group success when 3YO filly Nurse Kitchen (Savabeel-Flying Monty, by Montjeu) scored by 0.5 length for trainer David Brideoake in the $200,000 Gr2 Fillies Classic (1600m) for 3YO fillies, over fellow fillies Sezanne (More Than Ready-Champagne Harmony, by Choisir) & I Am A Star (I Am Invincible-Star Band, by Dixieland Band). Nurse Kitchen, who is out of a half-sister to New Zealand Derby winner Hades, improved her record to 2 wins from 3 starts for $134,300 earnings. "She's a lovely, promising filly that's very lightly raced with lots of upside," said trainer David Brideoake, who prepares Nurse Kitchen on behalf of her owner and breeder Sarah Moody. "I think we'll just tread quietly. We've always thought that she's a little immature and would require a little bit of racing." He added: "We think she'll be really there in the autumn."
