Bring Me The Maid will be striving to post an emotional victory when she heads to Moonee Valley on Friday night.

A Flemington winner on debut, the youngster is part-owned by the late Roy Higgins and his friend and business partner Wylie Dalziel, along with a syndicate of owners.

Higgins, the Hall of Fame jockey, died last Saturday aged 75 and was farewelled in a public service on Thursday at Flemington racecourse where the champion rider celebrated so many big-race victories.

Bring Me The Maid scored a narrow win on March 1, a week before Higgins died and on the same day as the running of the Roy Higgins Quality.

“For her to be able to win for Roy at Flemington was really special and something I will always remember fondly,” Dalziel told Racing Victoria.

Trainer Peter Moody has opted for Friday night’s Listed St Albans Stakes (1200m) over a black-type race in Sydney on Saturday for Bring Me The Maid.

The two-year-old is the $3 favourite with jockey-of-the-moment Chad Schofield taking the ride having been aboard the filly at her debut.

“Peter Moody is very happy with the way she’s going,” Dalziel said.

“Two-year-olds are a run-to-run proposition, she’s only had the one start in her career which was obviously impressive but you’d like to see her do it again.”

Dalziel, who has worked with Higgins in the syndication company Roy Higgins and Wylie Dalziel Racing for the past seven years, paid tribute to his friend and mentor at Thursday’s service.

He described Higgins as a champion bloke who touched the hearts of everyone.

“Your achievements and kind-hearted warmth to us all will never be forgotten and your legacy will live on forever,” Dalziel said.

The main race on the Friday night program is the Group Two Alister Clark Stakes (2040m) for three-year-olds, with the Mick Kent-trained filly Scratchy Bottom the $4.60 favourite.
