23/02/02 Best Still to Come from McBeal
0223mcbeal.jpg (9028 bytes)The best is still to come from McBeal according to leading trainer Tony McEvoy and that came after she annihilated an open class field in the Redcraze Handicap (2000m) at Caulfield today.

After sitting off the pace the daughter of Jeune began making ground with about 700 metres to run and then she worked home strongly for an effortless win.

At the post McBeal had a four length break over the runner-up La Zoffany, which attempted to kick clear at the top of the home straight.

McEvoy said the mare had been racing in great heart but he felt the best was still to come.

The Easter Cup has been earmarked as the race for McBeal as she attempts to take the next step to a stakes performer.

"I think she is going to be a much better horse at her next preparation," McEvoy said.

When the Caulfield Cup was mentioned as a possible long distance goal McEvoy didn't knock the suggestion.

The win by McBeal was the second early winner on the card for the Lindsay Park stable and young apprentice Mark Zahra. McEvoy and Zahra had combined in the first race of the day with Northerly's half brother North Boy.

Zahra said he enjoyed a lovely run during the race, giving McBeal a "great ride" according to the trainer.

"They went hard early and she got back a little bit further back than anticipated. But then she proved too good," Zahra said.

PICS - Quentin Lang.
