Clockwise Test For Heatherly

Wednesday, 1st March 2017

Smart sprinter Heatherly (Lonhro-Dancing Heather, by Danzero) will embark upon her first interstate assignment when she contests Saturday's Gr2 Challenge Stakes (1000m) at Randwick, reports Racing.com. "She worked fantastic this morning on the grass reverse way, so we're rapt with the way she's going," said Simon Zahra, who trains the 4YO Melbourne mare in partnership with Matthew Ellerton. "At this stage, we'll go to Sydney but we'll see what the weather does." Heatherly, a winner of 5 of her 13 starts, including the Gr2 Rubiton Stakes last year, resumed with a creditable sixth placing (beaten 2.1 lengths) in the Gr1 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes (1000m) on 18 February.
