AGENT PIPPA (DEMERIT)– what a start to her ES racing career with trainer Kris Lees- WINNING first up at Rosehill on Saturday! Her story is- this WA bred 3 yr old filly by DEMERIT out of FEMALE AGENT was purchased for $200,000 by Australian Bloodstock at the Gold Coast sale in March and they decided she still had too much racing left in her to go to stud, so she went to class trainer Kris Lees. Now AGENT PIPPA has given the syndicate an instant return.
AGENT PIPPA was a $14 chance in the ATC Foundation Handicap (1100m) but took care of her rivals with ease.
Hugh Bowman jumped her to the front and she led as she liked, holding off Deity ($5.50) by two lengths. “She’s a naturally fast horse,” Bowman said.
“She’s already a stakes winner in WA and hopefully she will get more chances over the next 12 months.
“She is another astute purchase by Australian Bloodstock.”
Long-term, there’s a group 3 mares race in six weeks which will be ideal for her. How we get there, we’ll see.
“She’s only three and she’s got some quality racing ahead of her.”
AGENT PIPPA won the Group Three Gimcrack Stakes (1100m) in Perth in March last year with her other two wins over 1000m.
A win like this has Rob and Jody Gray smiling large given they are now standing DEMERIT!
