Three year old filly Killer Instinct had a change of luck at Hawkesbury on Thursday when breaking her maiden at start number six, stepping up to 1800m for the first time. The staying-bred daughter of Animal Kingdom has always shown nice abilty but has been a  victim of poor barrier draws, slowley run races and recently heart arriythmia when first-up this preparation. 

Given a nice ride by top hoop Tommy Berry from Barrier 3, Killer Instinct settled just worse than mid-field on the fence. With a nice tempo throughout, Berry was able to able to use the inside to improve his position throughout, sitting just behing the leaders coming around the hometurn. 

"It was a nice effort from her today, the strongest part of her race was the last furlong so I've got no doubt she'll run further" commented Berry after the win.

Killer Instinct's win topped off a great month for her American owners LNJ Foxwoods who recently celebrated their Kentucky Derby win with their horse Country House. Killer Instinct was purchased by LNJ's bloodstock agents Jason Litt & Alex Solis from the 2017 Inglis Easter Sales for $320,000. Her dam, Sammy's Girl is out of multiple Group 1 winner and Champion 3YO filly in 2009 Samantha Miss. Samantha Miss has had 4 foals to race, all winners including Miss Fabulass- winner of last year's Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes.
