    ANOTHER interstate trip is on the cards for quality filly Malibuu.

    Sent to Victoria for last season’s Australasian Breeders’ Crown, Malibuu will head back south of the Murray later this year for the three-year-old edition.

    The Lisa Fitzpatrick-trained daughter of Sebastian K won a heat in Maryborough before a luckless run in the Final to finish eighth.

    Claiming a well-deserved feature by capturing the Trot New South Wales Final at Club Menangle yesterday, Malibuu is likely to have a “couple of runs” closer to home before being trusted in the care of Jess Tubbs.

    “I couldn’t be more thrilled with her,” Fitzpatrick said. “She is so consistent and always just gives her best.

    “Being a Group Two, that is my biggest training win and I also bred her, which makes it all the more special.

    “The Breeders’ Crown is her next main target but I will give her a couple of runs here before I send her to Jess.”

    With Fitzpatrick’s husband, Blake, holding the reins, Malibuu led throughout from barrier two to score by 16-and-a-half metres from Racing Eyes.

    Hillwinsome was six metres away third in 1:58.1 over the mile.

    “I wasn’t all that confident with her as Maximus Meridius has been the measuring stick for the crop up here, but his manners let him down which helped our cause,” Fitzpatrick said.

    “That’s one of the great things about her, she is such a professional with her manners.

    “We’ve seen over and over how manners can make a difference and that was the case yet again.”
