|Experienced Strathalbyn trainer Brian Mueller has predicted a bright future
for his two-year-old filly Leta after she stretched her unbeaten run to two after today's
Carbine Club Handicap (1100m) at Morphettville.
(pictured right), a veteran of the training ranks in both Western Australia and South
Australia, ranked the filly up among the best two-year-olds he had trained.
"Many thought the topweight (Rachael's Pride) would be
hard to beat and she was not beaten that far in the Karrakatta Plate, but I felt my filly
would be hard to beat as I've won two Karrakatta Plates in the past and she's as good as
them," Mueller said.
Mueller bred the daughter of WA based sire Zabaleta with his
breeding and bracing partner Debbie Evans.
"Hopefully the mare might be one out of the box, this is
her first foal and I'm pretty exciting about her next foal - a yearling filly by Encosta
de Lago," Mueller added.
The win ended a drought for local jockeys when Justin Potter
was able to boot the filly out of the gates and then lead throughout for a strong half
Second home was the Blevic filly Nancy Eleanor, while Hoyden
was the best of the rest a fair distance away in third place.
