Back to back wins for Talon Lady

Nov 06, 2014

Talon Lady made it back to back wins on Melbourne Cup day, by taking out the Class 2 Handicap over 1400m at the Gold Coast.

Jumping from the inside alley, Talon Lady travelled nicely in the one out one back position, for apprentice Luke Dittman.  She hit the lead at the top of the straight and fought hard to hold out the fast finishing Tribal Art by half a length.

Purchased by trainer Bruce Hill at the Magic Millions QTIS sale for $26,000, the Mossman mare has now collected over $36,000 for her connections.  Having only her second race preparation, she has really thrived, with three wins and two seconds from just six times this time in.
