Talented mare SMARTYPY collected another piece of silverware for the stable and booked herself a trip to Grafton for next month’s feature $160,000 Ramornie Handicap with a thrilling win on Ipswich Cup Day on Saturday.
The Smart Missile mare made it three wins from her past five starts this preparation after producing her trademark sprint for jockey Sean Cormack to claim the Sky Racing Class 6 Hcp.
Trainer Chris Munce said he would now target the Ramornie Handicap on July 10 for prominent owner Max Whitby after successfully claiming the Grafton Cup for Whitby last year with FIRST CRUSH.
The Ipswich win continued Cormack’s growing association with SMARTYPY, having partnered her to three wins, a second and a third from five starts together this preparation.
Congratulations to her owners: Whitby Bloodstock Pty Ltd, Springton Park Racing, Mr A C Lloyd Jones, Werrett Bloodstock Pty Ltd, Mr M R Malone.
