It was a big test for Lady Solly today going from the synthetic at Ballarat to a Heavy 9 on the Hillside track at Sandown.

But she showed her class and versatility by winning a BM 70 over 1000m. Johnny Allen was once again onboard and they are proving to be a great team.

She jumped with the field and used to early speed to settle outside the leader. At the 250 metre mark, Johnny asked Solly to go and she quickly put 3 lengths on the field. Johnny rode her hands and heals to the line and she won by one and a half lengths.

Johhny said ” She makes her own luck, puts herself in the race and able to finish off well”.

Thomas said after the race ” She has got very obvious ability and it has been a case of working with her. Johnny been a great help with her in the races. We are very happy with her at home and she is a little darling now.”

We are really excited as it was Lady Solly’s first city win and our first win at Sandown!

Watch her great win here:
