Spicer Thoroughbreds’ success story, Incredulous Dream, continued to grow her reputation with a first-up win at the Mornington Cup meeting.
Incredulous Dream stretched her record to three wins from seven starts when she got the better of Garvoc in a Bench Mark 70 for fillies and mares.
The grey daughter of Caulfield Guineas winner Press Statement overcame an incident in the barrier stalls, quickly regrouping and winning in quick time – much to the delight of connections who gathered to cheer her home.
“It was a very nervous wait for our girl to pass a vet inspection pre-race after becoming fractious in the gates, but all’s well that ends well,” Brad Spicer said.
“Within a few minutes later she had kicked off her campaign with an impressive win over what we think is a little short of her best. Jye McNeil had he is a good position just in behind the speed and made the move to attack at the right time on what can be a tricky track.”
The win, which bolstered the three-year-old’s career earnings to just shy of $140,000, sets Incredulous Dream up for a crack at some black type races over the Adelaide Carnival, commencing in April and spilling over into May.
“It’s great for her to come out and really assert herself as a high-class filly as that franks the opinion I had of her way back at the Magic Millions sale when I described her as the filly of the sale,” Spicer said.
