Smart 2yo Filly Funtantes
2YO Fillies Handicap - 1000m
1st - Funtantes; 2nd - Before The Storm; 3rd - Redibis
Trainer Rob Heathcote (who saddled back-to-back winners, taking out the first two races on the card): “Mate, it’s nice when you kick off a day like that. We are part-owners in Charvicky and I bred Funtantes with
. We bought the half-brother to Funtantes back at the recent sale for $105 000. Quite a few owners in Funtantes are going to race him in that QTIS 600 Series. Gee, I knew she was good, but oh mate, she’s smart. The thing I like about her is she goes to sleep in the stalls ... and even when you put the saddle on her she still doesn’t move, but you bring her out here in the parade ring and she gets up on her toes like a prize fighter. She’s about to rock and roll. And give the kid some credit – Brent Evens! Is he the most improved three kilo kid we’ve got? I just said to him, be aggressive. Those were the only instructions I gave him. He’s riding well. I’ll put her in all the features. I’ll nom her in the Sires and the Castlemaine. She is by Easy Rocking and her mum Cantantes, she only won twice. Injury curtailed her career. She won in town. Cantantes is a Just Awesome mare that can handle all ground. Yeah, just very, very happy.”
Apprentice jockey Brent Evans: “I was confident throughout. I didn’t think I would be quite that handy. I didn’t think I‘d actually get to the fence, but it turned out I did - I didn’t really want to, but I did. You know, I was just confident throughout the running that I would run the second horse down. It was a good win. It was my first ride on her. She’s a smart filly. It was pretty much as easy as it looked.”
