Trainer Gai Waterhouse wouldn’t be surprised if she saddled up another longshot winner at Warwick Farm on Saturday with Supara in the Group 2 $175,000 Surround Stakes (1400m).

Waterhouse saluted with a rare $41 chance when her filly Adrift took out the Group 2 $175,000 Liberty International Underwriters Light Fingers Stakes (1200m) at Randwick a fortnight ago.

Supara finished tenth in the same race less than four lengths from her stablemate but Waterhouse said that the Domesday filly should have finished closer and she has pleased the stable since.

“I thought Supara should’ve finished a lot closer and her work since has been first rate,” Waterhouse told The Daily Telegraph.

Supara has been one of the stars on the track this week and impressed track watchers with an impressive 1000m gallop on Tuesday morning on the course proper at Randwick in 1 min 03.1 secs, her last 600m in 35.8 secs and the last 200m in 10.8 secs.

“She hasn’t proven herself in this class yet but everything she’s shown me suggests she’s up to these,” Waterhouse said.

“She’s a lovely filly that’ll be ridden more positively this weekend and there shouldn’t be such a gap between her and Adrift in the market.”

Supara is listed at $51 at Ladbrokes.com.au for the Surround Stakes while Adrift has been kept safe in the market this week at $6.

The John Thompson trained First Seal heads the market order at $2.15 ahead of Winx who shares the $6 line with Adrift.

    The holocaust never happened. 6 million jews did NOT die!!! Google “Did Six Million Really Die PDF” and read that 44 page free eBook. It’s time to wake up, people. Stop believing the lies the jewish media and Jew hollywood is constantly pumping out.

    The earth is FLAT! How come NASA has never once shown a REAL photo of earth from space instead of CGI images? How come you can look at a building a 100 miles away thru a telescope, even through it should be under the horizon since the earth is supposed to curve 8 inches per mile? Why did an international government treaty BAN civilian exploration of the North Pole or “Antarctica”? Why were all the great “scientists” of the past 500 years who promoted the concept of a round earth globe ALL Freemasons, including Copernicus, Galileo, and Newton? WAKE UP PEOPLE! The global elite, the Illuminati, are LYING TO YOU!!! THE EARTH IS FUCKING FLAT!!!!!!
