A brilliant return to racing by Flit in Saturday’s G2 Light Fingers Stakes at Randwick has opened the door on an autumn campaign that seems likely to take her to the top and add new glories to the record of her sire Medaglia d’Oro.
Flit’s G1 success came in the Thousand Guineas in the spring, after which she had only one start.
But she showed class and courage to put the result beyond doubt with a stunning turn of foot inside the 300m.
Kiamichi, who led until that point couldn’t withstand either the winners closing speed or that of runner-up Lyre.
Medaglia D’Oro has ceased shuttle duties in Australia and is standing the northern hemisphere season at Jonabell Farm, Kentucky at a fee of US$200,000.
