This little Lady has an electrifying turn of foot and better footing shouldn’t worry her
Improved track conditions at Hawera on Sunday aren’t expected to dent Lincoln Lady’s super form line.
The Belardo mare returns to the scene of her brilliant hat-trick win a month ago when the track was rated a heavy 10, the same as her previous two wins.
But Rhys Mildon, stable foreman for the Stephen Marsh stable, doesn’t believe the soft 5 conditions, which can only improve with fine weather forecast, will stop her.
“As long as there’s a bit of give in the track she should be fine. We’re very happy with her. She’s been working beautifully.”
Lincoln Lady, a half sister to Lincoln Rocks, sold to Australia for big money in May, would benefit from having top jockey Michael McNab in the saddle again from a perfect two draw.
“She should be able to sit just in behind them and unleash that electrifying turn of foot we saw last time.”
Lincoln Lady, who goes up only 1kg for that win, and stays in the same rating 75 grade, has done nothing but keep improving, Mildon said.
“She improves every time she goes out there. Stephen always had a good opinion of her.”
With a photo-finish third on debut and three subsequent wins, Lincoln Lady is certainly doing a great job for Lincoln Farms’ owners John and Lynne Street.
And they are excited about the next one on the production line - Lincoln Lady’s younger brother Billy Lincoln, who is also being educated in the Marsh stable.
