Fantastic to see 3yo filly Conductress (3f Commands x Show Stealer by Tobougg) break through for a much deserved win at Wangaratta today after four previous placings!
The daughter of Commands has now raced 5 times and never been out of the money. “She is very diminutive but she is all heart and punches well above her weight division” said Jason Warren.
“She loves wet tracks so we were a bit worried about the firmer track today. Thankfully, she received a 10/10 ride by young gun apprentice Lachie King who took 3kg off her back which made all the difference“.
Lachie King is the son of former top hoop Steven King and looks to have inherited his father’s natural ability.
“His ride today was sensational. He drew the outside but managed to slot her in with cover just behind the leaders. I have come to expect those sort of rides from a Ben Melham but not a 3kg apprentice. I think he has a big future and we’ll be using him more often” said Warren.
Congratulations to the O’Brien family at Lauriston Farm who bred and race this filly in the famous orange and green silks worn by many great gallopers over the years headed by Gold Edition.
We also train the half sister to Conductress called Kardashing who is a nice young filly by Redoutes Choice. She is much bigger and robust than her older sister and will step out at the races in the coming month which will be exciting.
