The commanding victory of Avebury in the Listed Canberra Guineas stamped herself as a talented three-year-old on the rise. After breaking through two starts back, the filly careered away with the guineas, thanks to another genius ride from Kerrin McEvoy, allowing the daughter of Savabeel to showcase her full potential. The stakes success adds valuable black type to the filly’s profile. The lightly raced three-year-old will take great confidence from the victory, the focus now turns to the James H B Carr Stakes on the 15th of April, with a possible lead up in the P J Bell Stakes. The $200,000 Magic Millions purchase now has two wins from just seven starts with four minor placings, amassing over $140,000 in prizemoney.
Congratulations to winning owners: Mr M D Sullivan, Mystery Downs, Mrs C M Cook, Salter Pastoral Company, Mr M N Tucker, J E Abrahams Pty Ltd, Werrett Bloodstock Pty Ltd, Mr A D Paradice, Mr D Dickson
