SHE’S quite lazy and not the best track worker…
That’s how trainer Melissa Main described last night’s Launceston winner Nances Delight, which obviously saves her best for the races.
Despite her lack lustre attitude at home, Nances Delight is unbeaten from two starts, with Maine admitting the two-year-old is “a bit of surprise”.
“She is definitely surprising us,” Maine declared. “She’s quite lazy and not the best track worker, which makes her hard to gauge.”
Driven by Gareth Rattray, the daughter of Bettor’s Delight led throughout from barrier three to account for El Jays Mystery and Eternal Shadow in 2:02.3 over 1680 metres.
“What she has done at the races is a bit of surprise, but we’re rapt with her,” Maine said. “I felt she’d run in the first few, but to win both starts is terrific.”
With no major plans in mind for the filly, Maine is hoping Nances Delight can extend her streak before the end of the season.
“I haven’t got any specific plans with her, but hopefully she can pick up another two-year-old win before the end of the season,” Maine said.
