UNBEATEN filly Tangoingwithsierra is set to enjoy a well-deserved break.
Winner of last night’s Victorian Sapling Stake at her second start, Tangoingwithsierra will be sent for a spell partially due to a lack of racing options according to trainer Gary Hoban.
“Given she has won her two two-year-old races, and she’s not Australian Pacing Gold eligible, there isn’t a lot around for her during the next six or so weeks,” Hoban said.
“APG race series is on in April, and most of the other two-year-old races are 2C0 and 2C1.
“So she will have a light break, then look at Sires’ and Breeders’ Crown later in the season.”
Driven by Craig Hoban during her latest victory, Tangoingwithsierra was pushed through from the inside of the second row to gain the ideal trail behind Our Road To Mecca, which led from the pole.
Finishing strongly along the passing lane, Tangoingwithsierra sprinted to a two-metre win from the pacemaker, with Goodtime Grace two-and-a-half metres away third.
“She’s goes along quite nicely and does everything right,” Hoban said. “She is well educated within herself as though she’s been here and done it before.
“From day one she has gone along nicely and had brains about her. Everytime you ask her to do something, she does it easily and has the ability to go with it.”
By Sportswriter, the youngster is from Sierra Tango, which boasts three winners from three starts, with her progeny including 2016 Tasmania Oaks star, Dancingwithsierra.
