    CHAMPION mare Ladies In Red rounded out her Queensland preparation with another stylish win in Melton last night.

    In what is scheduled to be her last local outing before being sent north, Ladies In Red proved too good in the Cinderella Stake.

    Thrilled with the six-year-old’s performance, trainer Clayton Tonkin stated Ladies In Red will be kept fresh ahead of her Sunshine State raid.

    Ladies In Red’s targets include the $52,000 Fleur De Lil Ladyship Stake on July 13, $150,000 Golden Girl on July 20 and $400,000 The Blacks A Fake the following week.

    “That’ll be her last run before we go to Queensland,” Tonkin said. “There are several big races for her up there and we’re looking forward to getting her to Queensland.”

    With David Moran in the cart, Ladies In Red was caught wide from barrier seven before being settled in the ‘death seat’ and eventually the lead as her stablemate, Soho Historia, was eased to take a trail.

    Never seriously challenged from that point, the daughter of Mach Three cruised to a three-and-a-half metre win from Soho Historia, with Rakero Rebel six metres away third.

    “She’s such a marvellous mare which goes out there and gets the job done to the best of her ability every time,” Moran said. “She has proven herself time and time again with that big heart of hers and I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy the ride.”

    Rating 1:52.6 over 1720 metres, Ladies In Red took her record to an imposing 27 wins, seven seconds and earnings of $1,081, 300 for breeder-owners Anne and Bill Anderson.
