It has been a mixed week for Brisbane trainer Kelly Schweida but he left Eagle Farm on Saturday with two genuine winter carnival hopes.

Schweida went to Doomben on Wednesday confident he could get at least a treble from his seven runners but went home empty handed.

“I have had better days,” Schweida said.

He fronted at Eagle Farm on Saturday with only two horses, Kentucky Woman and Little Bit Ditsy, who both turned in outstanding runs.

A four-year-old mare, Kentucky Woman was having just her fifth race start but beat a well above average field in a Class 6 Plate.

“It was throwing her in at the deep end as a Class 1 mare in a Class 6 but I have always had an opinion of her,” Schweida said.

“She should have won at Doomben at her previous start and I felt she needed the big track and 1400 metres.”

“She has a way to go yet but she just might be up to some of the better fillies and mares races in the winter.”

Little Bit Ditsy flew home for a close second to Queen of the Lochs in a race for three-year-olds.

“I have been waiting to get her up to 1400 metres and on that run she wouldn’t be out of place in the better three-year-old races this winter,” Schweida said.

“Maybe, the Queensland Guineas?”

It wasn’t all smiles for Schweida who was the guest speaker at a function on Friday and explained to the audience how Little Bit Ditsy got her name.

“It was named after a friend of one of the owners,” he said.

“I did embellish it a bit and I was later having lunch when the waitress told me she was the friend who was a little bit ditsy.”

“She didn’t seem too happy.”
