Gr1 Winning Filly Primed For Telegraph
Meanwhile, the Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman-trained Luna Rossa is in top order ahead of her first-up run in Saturday's Gr1 Telegraph at Trentham, reports NZ Racing Desk. A winner of the Gr1 Manawatu Sires' Produce Stakes as a 2YO last April, Luna Rossa tuned up for her return to action by winning a 935m barrier trial at Cambridge on 10 January. "She won on the course and at the distance as a two-year-old and it's a race we've been thinking about for her for a while," Baker said. "She's a good filly with plenty of speed and she's really come up well. With only 52.5kg on her back she'll be ready to go." Baker added: "She won a trial well here at Cambridge and she's by Written Tycoon and they're flying."
