Press Report - She's Back!
Feb 08, 2016
After a lacklustre prep last time in Press Report had seemed to lose some of her admirers.
She four year old mare resumed at Randwick at the weekend and was sent out as 50/1 rank outsider in the Group 2 Breeders Classic.
Press Report jumped to the front of the field and travelled sweetly throughout. She gave an almighty kick at the top of the straight and again at the 200m. She had the outside horse Ive Got the Looks beaten with 100m to go and looked destined to win her first Stakes race.
But just when we dared to think she was home, Group 1 Thousand Guineas winner Amicus upset the party by grabbing our girl on the post and beating her by the barest of margins.
A bittersweet feeling hung about amongst the connections. Thoughts of what could have been at any old price. But even though she didn't win it was proof enough that our mare is back in form and at the right time. There is an abundance of blacktype races over the Autumn carnival and with some luck Press Report may be able to snag one them to add to her already outstanding record.
Press Report has now won in excess of $380k.
