Aussie Girl made all under jockey Jamie Powell to win the €100,000 Dubai Duty Free Summer Fillies Handicap at the Curragh for long standing owner and supporter of the yard Peter Piller.
Asked to stretch passing the two pole, Aussie Girl had a couple of lengths advantage passing the furlong marker and kept on well in the closing stages. Backing up quickly after finishing second at Naas last week the consistent daughter of Starspangledbanner responded well to the challenge and won by ¾-length.
“I only declared her at five to ten on Friday morning when I saw there were only nine in it.
“Obviously it wasn’t planned out as she only ran in Naas a few days ago and that’s her third race in a fortnight. She’s tough.
“The track probably plays to her strengths as she likes bowling away and there is a strong wind pushing her along.
“It’s a good pot and it’s great for Mr Piller who has had horses with us a long, long time.” Fozzy Stack.
