All Apologies backed her promising first career start with a determined win at the Sunshine Coast on Sunday.

After drawing barrier 5 All Apologies was helped by the scratching’s which saw her start from barrier 2. Jockey Matt McGillivray was looking to make it two wins from two rides for the stable after winning on the promising 2yo Courseshewill at Doomben on Saturday.

All Apologies showed some ability when making her debut on the 12th September, finishing the race off strongly over the concluding stages. Over the following days she was found to have strained her hamstring during the race but with some intensive treatment and by utilising the Archer Park recuperation facilities All Apologies made a speedy recovery.

The pre-race plan of having All Apologies positioned mid field in possibly 5th or 6th position was executed perfectly by McGillivray as he allowed All Apologies to settle where she was comfortable. 

Staying on the fence and not having to spend any energy in the run saw All Apologies poised to strike on straightening with McGillivray content to take inside runs.

Passing the 200 metre point All Apologies began to reel in the leader Bonny Brie before taking the lead at the 100 metre marker, holding off the fast finishing Strawberry Blonde.

Congratulations to the owners, Mark McLean, Jan Brosnan, Jeff Daniels, Sam Daniels, Karl Brosnan, Bill Lister, Danny Bourke, Lyal Midgley, Jim Joyce, Mark Peters, Steven Plath & Alan Stephenson.

On this occasion All Apologies was strapped by Donna Fisher.
