Lady Luck Finally Shines On What A Beauty

A bit of "Lady Luck" finally went the way of What A Beauty when she stormed home to win a Fillies And Mares Rating 68 over 1400m on her home track at Ballarat. After winning a Two-Year-Old Fillies Maiden at the same venue on debut in March 2010, she had little luck in a number of her subsequent 14 runs including her last start placing at Flemington. Last week from her wide barrier, apprentice Jake Duffy settled her back to near last and after giving the leaders a sizeable start on the turn, she showed her class threading her way through the field before charging to the line for a well-deserved win. The mare who is a half sister to this season’s Group 3 winner Platelet cost trainer Darren Weir a mere $4600 as a weanling. What A Beauty's win completed a double for "Weiry'' at the meeting have also won a 1000m Fillies And Mares Maiden with Rossa May which overcame difficulties after being held up for a run several times in the straight.
