Congratulations to all connections of Hela Flyer (Lonhro/ Hela Dubai) winner of her first ever race start at Cranbourne today. The filly won today's Slickpix Fillies and Mares maiden in confident style, ridden by the very talented Patrick Moloney.
Hela Flyer is raced by a group of long-time stable clients including Peter and the Peppermint Park syndicate, Neville and son Mark, Clive and Jane, Frank, Tim and Warren, along with Ray and of course Cheryl
The dainty little black daughter of Lonhro grabbed Cheryl's attention at the 2014 Inglis Easter Sales as she paraded in the pre-sale ring. Cheryl has a great eye for a horse, Pat is a brilliant pedigree analyst, and together they make a formidable team when selecting yearlings. In 2013 they purchased All I Survey (1 win from 8 starts, placed in the Listed Galilee Stakes) in much the same way, from the Adelaide Magic Millions when Cheryl noticed him as he prepared to enter the sale ring.
Thanks to all of the dedicated staff, vets, farriers and therapists at Epsom Lodge. Everyone plays a valuable part in getting our horses to the races, and most importantly keeping them in the best of health and welfare.
