Our Sassy Lady shines in Sandown races debut

The best advertisement in selling the last few remaining shares of a racehorse is to land a victory.

That is what the Mick Price and Michael Kent Jnr- rained debutant Our Sassy Lady achieved in taking out the Sportsbet Jockey Watch Plate (1400m) at Sandown on Wednesday.

Ridden by Jye Mcneil, Our Sassy Lady ($3.50) held off a late bid from the $2.50 favourite Makdane with Autumn Storm ($4.80) a further three-quarters-of-a-length away third.

Kent Jnr revealed post-race that Our Sassy Lady still had some ownership shares available, a filly that is owned by My Racehorse which also shared in the ownership of Etincelle which took out the following race, the IVE> Plate (1200m).

A large contingent of the My Racehorse ownership group were on course to welcome back both winners.

“I’m rapt for My Racehorse,” Kent Jnr said.

“There were still shares available in this filly last week, and after that, I’m sure they will all be gone now.

“They do a lot for racing and igniting people’s passion for the sport. People only have to spend a tiny sum and to get a city win on debut, it’s a dream result.”

Kent Jnr said Our Sassy Lady would appreciate a step up in distance after her win on Saturday, although she had to do it the tough way.

“I know they went steady but it’s never easy to be sitting on the outside of the leader, a short bit in front,” Kent Jnr said.

“She did a good job to hold them off late and it’s nice to get one up on Dad (Mick Kent), as he got me last week.

“Being a three-year-old filly and whether we can place her right, I’m sure we can find something.

“Whether that’s at 1400 metres, or a mile, at filly’s level, that would be nice, but she’s a tough filly and I wouldn’t be surprised if she didn’t get 2000 metres in time.”
