She might be a newcomer to Queensland racing, and her Queensland debut was less than inspiring, but Lushness has been the best backed with Sportsbet.com.au to take out the Optus Handicap (870m) at Toowoomba on Friday.
The former John Moloney trained filly is now under the care of Damien Rideout, and the daughter of Kaphero made her Queensland debut at Rockhampton where she finished down the track behind Jewel Bangles. Despite that poor effort, the punters have latched onto her. She opened $26 and has firmed to $15.
She has been the lone mover in the race, with the favourite being Faraday’s Rage at $2.50 off the back of an impressive debut win at the Sunny Coast back in August.
