Successful stallion Flying Spur has now sired a total of 100 winners nation-wide during the current Australian racing season.

Flying Spur reached the sought after century when Chivvy won her debut start at Sandown Racecourse yesterday.

The two-year-old John Hawkes-trained Chivvy won the 1,000 metre Race-Tech Handicap ahead of Lee Freedman’s Joyeux and Pat Hyland’s Bonaria.

Jockey Michael Rodd rode Chivvy to her one and a quarter length win.

“She is a bomb-proof ride,” Rodd said.

“She has been really well educated.

“She stood in the barriers; she pinged out and let me tuck in behind them.”

Rodd said that she was brimming with natural ability in the race.

“She had them covered coming down the dip,” he said.

“I had to sort of hold her together because I didn’t want to get to the front too soon because it is a long way up the straight on a green two-year-old.”

Her trainer also felt that she possessed the manner of a much older horse.

“She is a nice filly, she has done everything right,” Hawkes said.

“She has just taken a little bit of time but she is just a professional.

“Out the back, you would have thought it was an eight-year-old gelding.

“She just stood there, she had one leg sort of sloped and relaxed.”

Hawkes did admit that Sandown’s dipped track was of concern to him going into the race.

“You don’t know how they are actually going to go on these tracks,” Hawkes said.

“She had gone through it at Flemington on the grass tracks but it’s a big difference from trackwork to race day and race conditions.”

Chivvy was purchased by the Hawkes racing team as a $220,000 yearling from the 2010 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale.

The young filly is the first foal out of unraced Red Ransom mare Negotiate, who is a half-sister to Group 1 AJC Champagne Stakes winner Fleet.

Flying Spur is also the sire of stakes winners such as Satin Shoes, Alverta, Miss Gai Flyer, Das Machen and Montana Flyer.
