Consistent galloper Fairy Me Home broke through for the third win of his career in the $A50,000 Souths Sports Club Class 3 Plate (1615m) at Doomben on Saturday.
Ridden by Luke Dittman, Fairy Me Home settled mid-field on the fence behind a moderate speed. He travelled well to the 600m mark where they sprinted and left him flat footed.
On straightening he was under pressure with plenty to do but once he obtained a clear path inside the 200m he sprinted hard to get up on the line and win by a half-head margin.
Trainer Chris Waller said he would see how Fairy Me Home came through the run before deciding whether he would have another run this campaign or spell.
“He has been up a long time, close to twelve months, so we will see how he comes through today’s run,” he said.
“Paul Shailer, my assistant trainer in Queensland, assured me he was the best looking horse in the parade ring today, indicating he is still holding good condition and looking fantastic.
“We will see how he comes through the run, he doesn’t need to run again but if he does then it will be in two weeks at Doomben in a similar race.”
Bred by Windsor Park Stud, Fairy Me Home is out of the stakes placed mare Fairy Tipsy, who is also the dam of Gr.1 Levin Classic winner Distill and multiple stakes winner Mr Tipsy.
He was purchased by Go Racing out of Windsor Park Stud’s 2017 Premier Yearling Sale draft and he’s now collected over $A120,000 for his owners.
