She repeated the dose in the Final again flying the lids to lead and race away in a dominant display. She ran a sensational 29.52 in winning by 3.50 lengths. She then stepped out in Open company at headquarters and looked a little flat running 4th, however, bounced back to her best with a super win in the Doug Payne SA Bred feature where she rattled of a slick 29.67 win and made it two features for the month.
At the end of the month Coorong Lucy’s record stood at 50 starts for 36 wins and 7 placings with earnings just
