Bargain buy Feisty Fox is reaching her peak and is ready to add to her win tally at Kembla Grange on Saturday.
The six-year-old mare only cost $500 has already banked $68,000 in stakes and has won the Mollymook Cup this preparation and probably should have won again at Kembla last start.
“She still just does a few things wrong and she overraced last time and it was the difference between getting the photo and not,” trainer Luke Price said.
“She has been in great form this time in and I think we have found the right race for her on Saturday.
“She just needs to relax and settle and she will be very hard to beat, especially with a bit of give in the ground, which she needs.”
Price has delighted to be able to book Kathy O’Hara for Feisty Fox in the Wollongong Private Hospital benchmark 64 Handicap.
“I heard Kath was coming down for the day early, so I got the phone and booked her,” Price said.
“It is a big bonus to have someone with good hands like Kathy on her because she has the ability to get horses to travel, which will help this girl.”
Earlier in the afternoon, Price, who trains in partnership with his dad Robert, will saddle up Twirl Moss in the IRT Foundation benchmark 64 Handicap. He found the firm-2 track at Queanbeyan too hard first-up but has been working well at Kembla.
He has won two of his five starts and is another that will like the soft conditions.
“You will see a big improvement from him on Saturday. He likes that give in the track and he didn't really stretch out at Queanbeyan," Price said.
