Quick Feet secures her second win
20 May 2017 | By Rob Burnet 

The Snowden trained Quick Feet secured her first win since her debut 13 starts ago when taking the $100,000, George Moore Hall of Fame (1400m) at Rosehill on Saturday, but in between the Northern Meteor filly has three times earned black type placings and run honourably in the Golden Slipper.

Apprentice Nick Heywood, giving Quick Feet 3kg off her 59.5kg, produced the filly late and she powered to the line withstanding a determined challenged from White Moss (57.5kg) and Tye Angland on her outside.

The margin was a short half-head with Fleeting Stryke (Stryker) (carried 53.5kg) and apprentice Brock Ryan in third, the margin a neck. The $2.70 favourite Passage Of Time was fourth.

The time was 1.24.06 on the Soft 7 track with the final 600m in 36.40. Quick Feet paid $13.00 on fixed odds and $12.60 on the tote.

Quick Feet favours good tracks and the conditions on Saturday was closer to her lower margin. Back on top of the ground she has mixed her racing with the best of her generation with a second in the Group 2 Reisling Stakes to French Fern and thirds in the Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes, to Omei Sword, and the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes, to Foxplay. She was ninth in the Group 1 Golden Slipper.

“She tries very hard and good to see for Tim Stakesmire and Sheikh Khalifa to get a winner. They are great supporters of the stable,” said Snowden.

Snowden said that he was not sure about the next move for Quick Feet with Brisbane’s tracks too wet and Sydney’s weather heading towards winter and softer tracks.

“It was good to see her win today, a great result,” he summed up.

Overall Quick Feet, out of the Strategic mare Delaluna, has won stakes of $269,675 from her two wins and black type placings for Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Maktoum.
