Promising 2YO filly Lyrical Girl almost got the job done on Saturday at the Sunshine Coast in her second start, coming 2nd by just half a length to the winner and $2 favourite.
It was a huge improvement from her first start at the Gold Coast just a few weeks back in tough conditions. She jumped well out of the gates and sat just behind the leader for the majority of the race, before peeling to the outside down the straight.
Lyrical Girl and the winner Clever Miss were a good four lengths in front of the rest of the field, which really speaks to the potential of this filly. As it was only her second start she was still racing a bit green, and just couldn’t close in enough on the leader to win the race. Watch the race replay below:
It really was a gutsy performance from this filly, with trainer Tony Gollan beyond stoked with how she went in just her second run. He is now looking towards a Stakes race on Doomben Cup Day for just her third start given she pulls up from the race with no issues, which is exciting for all owners in this filly.
