Golden Falls impresses in $100k BRC Plate

Jun 28, 2015

Lightly raced filly Golden Falls put herself on the stakes trail with her outstanding win in the $100,000 BRC Plate at Doomben on Saturday.

Gold Coast galloper Lucky Tom ($4.80) looked certain to win when he was two lengths clear at the 200m but Golden Falls ($6) came with a withering burst to win by two lengths.

The usually conservative trainer Kelly Schweida admitted he was thinking about black-type races for Golden Falls after she made up 12 lengths from the 600m.

"The owners are breeders and as you saw she is pretty good. I have nothing solid in mind but I think she will run at least 1600 metres and we will look for something around that trip for her," Schweida said.

Winning jockey Glen Colless said Golden Falls should have won her previous start at the Sunshine Coast.
