Front running filly Global Glamour repeated her all the way win in the Group 1 Flight Stakes with a similar performance to take out the Group 1 $500,000 Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield today.

The genius of trainer Gai Waterhouse along with the efforts of new training partner Adrian Bott together were able to back up Global Glamour up from her win in the Group 1 $500,000 Sydney Airport Flight Stakes (1600m) at Randwick last Saturday to win her second Group 1 trophy in a matter of seven days.

Winning jockey Kerrin McEvoy took over the reins from Tim Clark and had the Star Witness filly travelling nicely in front and Global Glamour ($4.40) responded to the urgings of McEvoy to hold off I Am A Star ($21) with the West Australian filly Whispering Brook ($8.50) running a great race for third.

Co-trainer Adrian Bott said that Global Glamour has done a great job to back up in the week and would decide later in the week if she will go on further into the Melbourne Spring Carnival.

“She is an absolute star and I think she is obviously going to be a special filly that she had proven today. We thought that early from a very young age. We saw it on debut she won brilliantly by six lengths and we thought that she was going to be one of our favourites going into the slipper but that didn’t work but she had come back in such good order.”

“We saw her put it all together last start and today we saw her take it to a new level again.”

Today’s win by Global Glamour was Waterhouse’s first Thousand Guineas win and is her second Group 1 win in partnership with Bott.

“I’m absolutely delighted to be a part off her first winner,” Bott said.

“We haven’t thought too far beyond today’s race. It was a tough ask just to come down here today and back in seven days. We will take a deep breath and just let the dust settle and enjoy the moment today before making any firm plans.”

The Chris Waller trained Foxplay was sent out as the $4.20 favourite and after settling midfield was held up slightly in the straight but once in the clear ran on okay to claim fourth spot.

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to

  9. travel around

    I think that what you said was actually very logical.

    However, what about this? suppose you added a
    little content? I ain’t suggesting your information is not solid, but what if you added a headline to maybe grab
    people’s attention? I mean 2016 Thousand Guineas winner Global Glamour wins from the front – HorseRacing.com.au is kinda boring.
    You should look at Yahoo’s front page and
    note how they create post headlines to grab people interested.
    You might try adding a video or a pic or two to grab readers excited about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it might bring your website a little livelier.
