Braidwood-based trainer Mary Bray trained her first winner when filly So It Is finished powerfully to salute at Kembla Grange on Tuesday.
Jay Ford settled the daughter of Bernardini towards the rear of the field before peeling off the back of odds-on chance Emperor’s Way to record a decisive 1.5L win.
So It Is winning impressively at Kembla
Bray, who uses the Goulburn track as a training facility, had only had five prior attempts at cracking her maiden victory.
“I was breeding but that wasn’t financial so the accountant said change and I went to training,” Bray said, who currently has a stable of 10 horses.
“This is a really nice filly. We bought her at one of the Darley dispersal sales and just like any of the Darley horses, they are beautifully prepared and managed.”
So It Is had just two starts for the Godolphin operation in Melbourne, both on synthetic surfaces, before being moved on.
