Lightning For Heatherly

Tuesday, 7th February 2017

Smart sprinting mare Heatherly (Lonhro-Dancing Heather, by Danzero) is set to launch her autumn campaign in the weight-for-age Gr1 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes (1000m) at Flemington on Saturday week (18 February). "She's won up the straight before and goes really well fresh so the Lightning looks a nice race for her," co-trainer Simon Zahra told Racing.com. "She looks terrific but she probably just needs a really good hit-out because she's still a touch round and first-up in the Lightning she needs to be ready to go." A winner of 5 of her 12 starts, including the Gr2 Rubiton Stakes last autumn, Heatherly has also been placed twice at Gr1 level in the Oakleigh Plate and Moir Stakes.
