introducing you to Tori
17 APRIL 2021 (see video here)
Still no downgrade for our youngster and she ran at 6/1 from trap 1 in A4 grade. She was last out the traps but showed some pace to make 5th on the rails at the first bend. She was unable to improve on this throughout the race and finished in a time of 28.58.
11 APRIL 2021 (see video here)
Still in A4 grade Tori ran at 5/2 from trap 1. On a night when no trap 1 was able to show any form on the track she was slow away and last to the first bend. She railed well and with the winner way out clear she joined the chasing pack but then got crowded tight on the rail at the final bends and shuffled back to 5th place in a time of 28.61.

Up to A4 grade even though she did not win her last race Tori was sent off at 11/4 from trap 1. She was slow out of the traps but showed good pace and determination at the first bend to claim 4th place. She ran strongly down the back straight to move into 3rd place and railed well round the last to gain more ground but the well back 3 dog was away and won and she finished a close 3rd in 28.45.

Up to A5 Tori was still well backed at 5/2 and ran from trap 1. After breaking well and showing tremendous early pace she led off the first bend and scorched into a 2 length lead, the well backed favourite came out the pack to chase her down but she pulled out a bit more only to be denied on the last stride going down a neck in 28.07.
11 MARCH 2021 (see video here)
Although getting caught on the line in A7 last week Tori as upgraded to run from trap 1 in A6 grade and was sent off at 7/2. Off a level break she showed good pace (3.89 split) to reach and take the lead on the rails around the first bends. She pulled away down the back straight but the favourites were approaching going into the final bends. However she railed well and kept on strongly to the line to win by 2 1/2 lengths in 28.34 for her first ever career win.
28 FEBRUARY 2021 (see video here)
After her testing debut last week Tori was given a more realistic chance in A7 grade again from trap 1 and ran at odds of 11/4. She was again slow out the boxes but showed some good pace to get to the front of the field on the rails and great determination to hold her position around the first two bends and emerge in the lead. Down the back straight she led but the odds on favourite was chasing on her outside. She managed to hold him off around the final bends but just conceded defeat on the line to go down by just a short head in a much improved 28.49.

A bit of a wait for her first race due to some bad weather Tori at last took her place in trap 1 in a very difficult A6 grade. She was very slow out of the traps and last to the bend. She ran well throughout the race and almost got into 5th place but finished 6th in a time of 28.94. Hopefully a more realistic grade for our youngster next time.
