2yo Filly Ocean Miss made her first trip to the Balnarring during the week for her first educational jump out…and she pleased David and Coral Feek with the way she handled herself and performed in the 750m trial. The daughter of Ocean Park was towards the rear early in her heat before cruising up behind the leaders as they turned for home and working to the line untouched for and easy fourth, beaten about 1.5L.
'She showed us some lovely natural ability today’. Said David Feek from Balnarring.
‘We were fortunate enough to have Jamie Kah onboard today and she was very complimentary of the filly afterwards. It was purely an educational exercise and to finish so close in her first look away from home shows us that she has above average ability’.
‘We’ll giver her one more educational trial before a spell.. and perhaps we’ll dream of an Oaks campaign in the Spring or next Autumn. She certainly gives us the impression that she has got above average ability, however you never really know until you get them to the races. We’ll keep dreaming of an Oaks and simply take it one step at a time’.
Ocean Miss was a $100,000 June Magic Millions Purchase (2018), selected by leading bloodstock agent John Foote and off the astute farm at Milburn Creek. Ocean Miss is a half to the multiple Listed winning son of Darci Brahma in Alibi and 4-time city winner Yellen (Pentire).
You can watch her trial below.
David and Coral Feek will give her another week before heading back to the jump outs and then heading to paddock as the Autumn pastures starts to come through.
Be sure to follow Ocean Miss’s progress as we head into the 2019 Spring!
