Well Said mare wins in 1:56.3

SHE COULD BE GOOD, a New Zealand-bred daughter of world champion WELL SAID, earned a new speed badge of 1:56.3 in winning at Bunbury (WA) on Saturday night (September 23).

Leading from the outset, the bay mare carved out quarters of 29.3, 30.3, 28.4 and 28.4 on her way to a length victory.

It was her seventh win and lifted her stake earnings over the $40,000 mark.

Out of a New York Motoring mare, SHE COULD BE GOOD was bred by Reg Caldow and is raced by Robert Gartrell.

In New Zealand, ALWAYS THE BRAVE, a WELL SAID gelding, notched his maiden success at only his second start at Invercargill on Saturday (September 23).

Taking full advantage of a soft passage, the gelding finished resolutely to score by a length in a 2:01.3 rating over 2200 metre

He clocked 58.4 for the last 800 and 28.4 for the closing quarter.

From a mare by McArdle, ALWAYS THE BRAVE was bred by C. H. and Mrs T. J. Barlow and is owned by J. W. Adams.
