A professional if not spectacular performance by first starter Don’t Blink pleased connections when winning the Australian Turf Club (2YO,1100m) at Canterbury today.

The well-related daughter of Redoute’s Choice Snip Snip came into the event after two easy trial wins that impressed track watchers.

Punters unloaded on Don’t Blink, who started odds on, despite the heavy 10 track rating.

Jockey Christian Reith sent the filly to the lead and set a quick speed ahead of Diamond Start.

Rounding the turn, she shook off Diamond Start who came again in the final 200m.

While Diamond Start never looked like winning she did enough for Reith to push Don’t Blink to the line.

“It is a big challenge coming here on a extremely wet track,”  trainer John ‘Shea said.

“She is very professional, she bangs out, puts herself there and travels well.

“She was probably entitled knocked up a bit at the end.

“She is quite willing and can put herself in a good position, that will be handy for her later on.

O’Shea was pleased with the ride by Reith.

“If they are entitled to be $1.60 they may as well be ridden accordingly,” he said.

“We didn’t want to over complicate things and she was ridden lovely.

”She’ll have a short let-up and a race like the Widden Stakes in the autumn is on the cards.”

Don’t Blink  is a sister to Group 3 2006 VRC Maribyrnong Plate  winner Husson Lightning.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get setup?

    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% certain.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    He was totally right. This put up truly made
    my day. You can not consider simply how a lot time I had
    spent for this info! Thanks!

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Bless you!

    Hi there! I understand this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does building a well-established blog like yours take a massive amount work?
    I am brand new to writing a blog but I do write in my
    diary everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can share
    my own experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips
    for new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!
