She Will Reign Burns Up The Track
Trainer Gary Portelli has declared boom filly She Will Reign (Manhattan Rain-Courgette, by Charge Forward) the real deal following a brilliant piece of trackwork at Warwick Farm yesterday morning. It was She Will Reign's first gallop since smashing her rivals by 9 lengths in an 800 metre trial at Warwick Farm last week. The 2YO, who has won her only two starts by a combined margin of 12 lengths, is set to kick off her Golden Slipper campaign when she resumes in the Gr2 Silver Slipper (1100m) at Rosehill on Saturday. "Her work was fantastic this morning [Tuesday]," Portelli told Racing.com. "It was unbelievable work to watch. She's the real deal. It was just nice controlled work over 1000 metres with Straturbo [stable-mate] and it was just really good work." She Will Reign is currently the $6 favourite for the $3.5 million Gr1 Golden Slipper (1200m) to be run at Rosehill Gardens on 18 March.
