Pluck mare Life On The Wire has powered home to extend her winning streak in the Ladbrokes Money Wire Hcp (1400m) at Sandown.
Saturday’s victory made it four-on-end for the Tasmanian star and sets up a stakes assignment in the Bow Mistress Trophy Gr.3 at Elwick on February 9.
“She will freshen up with Tony Carter-Smith at Kilmore and then go back home for the Bow Mistress,” trainer Scott Brunton said. “She’s a mare that’s really starting to put it together. She’s tough, a trier and really chases.”
Life On The Wire (4m Pluck – Our Seventh Heaven by Vettori) had to dig deep to reel in Moonlover by a neck on the Hillside circuit. It was her 6th win in 12 starts and she also owns Listed-placings in the Tasmanian Guineas (1600m) and Hobart Guineas (2100m).
“She goes fast but we think she’s a better chaser,” jockey David Pires explained. “She had a bunny today although I was a bit worried when the leader skipped away. But she stuck to the task and got the job done.”
Pluck (More Than Ready) stands at Vinery and is a Top 10 third-season sire with 19 individual winners this season. He has a yearling half-brother to South African Group 2 performer Estiraaj catalogued as Lot 1010 at the Gold Coast Magic Millions on Sunday, January 14.
