CONNECTIONS of Galleons Glory hope her recent drought-breaking win has opened a floodgate.
Absence from the number one stall for 22 months, Galleons Glory registered an overdue success in Goulburn on December 28.
To the Locke family’s delight, Galleons Glory completed consecutive victories by scoring at Club Menangle yesterday.
It is the first time in 48 starts the daughter of Majestic Son has registered back-to-back wins.
Trained by Simon Locke, Galleons Glory is owned by Courtney Locke.
“It was a long time between drinks before she won at Goulburn,” Simon said. “She’d run five seconds in that time but just struggled to get the win.
“Now she’s come out and won at Menangle, so hopefully she’s managed to turn it around.”
Driven by Sam Hewitt, Galleons Glory worked to the lead from barrier eight before being eased to take a trail behind the leader, One Night Out.
Angled away from the pegs at the top of the home straight, the mare sprinted to a four-and-a-half metre win from One Night Out.
Bacardi Barmaid was two-and-a-half metres away third in 1:58.5 over 2300 metres.
“She got a nice trip and was able to make the most of it,” Simon said. “Sam didn’t have to move on her and she won with a bit up her sleeve.
“I’ll give her a few easy days now then aim her at the Canberra Cup on February 7.”
