First starter Pittsburgh Flyer ran out an easy winner of the 1109
The win came just five days after the Hopes won the Quezette Stakes at Caulfield with Sabatini, and like the winner of that Group Three event Pittsburgh Flyer is raced by breeder Alpara Lodge, and is by Darley stallion Street Cry out of a group-winning mare.
While Sabatini is out of Hope-trained Mannerism Stakes winner Royal Sash, Pittsburgh Flyer’s dam is Warning Zone, the champion two-year-old filly in South Africa in 2002-03, when she won the Group Two Greyville Golden Slipper.
Shannon Hope said after Thursday’s race Pittsburgh Flyer was a ‘‘nice filly’’.
‘‘The owner and breeder has been very patient,’’ he said.
‘‘She took a bit of time to get to this stage and I’ve got to thank the staff too as she has been very well educated.’’
Pittsburgh Flyer showed the benefit of that education by doing everything right in the running, winning by two lengths after sitting outside the leader Viva La Dance, who held on for second.
