Trainer Pat Duff thought he had made a terrible blunder after accepting ownership of Lily My Girl to settle a debt.

Lily My Girl showed little ability and in desperation Duff took her to country Wondai for a maiden where she managed to score a narrow win.

Since then Lily My Girl has been a great money-spinner and took her prize money to $74,225 when she won her fourth race in the L&H Auslec Plate (1200m) at Doomben on Wednesday.

“I was owed a bit of money by one of my owners so I accepted Lily My Girl in payment,” Duff said.

“I race her myself and after a few starts, I thought here is another Duff story, she can’t go a yard.

“But I took her to Wondai and she must have thought I am not going back there because all of a sudden she flourished.”

Lily My Girl is by top sire Show A Heart and as now a two-time Doomben winner she has some value as a broodmare.

The win gave Duff a further thrill because Lily My Girl was ridden by apprentice Alannah Fancourt who started her career with the trainer.

“That was my first win for Pat and I have always wanted to ride one for him,” Fancourt said.

Fancourt scored her first city double when she won for new master Tony Gollan on Vienna Royale ($6) in the Workpac McInnes Wilson Handicap.

“Alannah has got her weight down and I will be using her a lot more in the new season,” Gollan said.

Gollan also got a double as Duporth Jack made it two wins in a row in the NHP Handicap (1660m).

“It took him a long time to win a maiden at his previous start but he is ready to win a few more now,” Gollan said.

Gollan has now trained 74 winners this season which puts him four off breaking Bruce McLachlan’s long-standing Brisbane trainer’s record of 78.

Jockey Brad Stewart bounced back from a fall in Saturday’s Rockhampton Cup to complete a double on Shady Daisy and Chilwero.
