Top Filly Rubiton Bound

Tuesday, 7th February 2017

Gr1-winning filly I Am A Star (I Am Invincible-Star Band, by Dixieland Band) will resume against the older horses in Saturday's Gr2 Rubiton Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield, reports NZ Racing Desk. The Shane Nichols-trained 3YO hasn't raced since winning the Gr1 Myer Classic (1600m) at Flemington on 29 October. "She's going well. She looks far better now than what she did in the spring," Nichols said of his New Zealand-bred stable star. "She's strengthened up and her work has been good." He added: "The Rubiton is a nice kick-off for her with 53.5 kilos to launch into a preparation that will involve possibly some trips to Sydney and back to Melbourne and even maybe Adelaide at the end of the preparation."
