Star filly Sold For Song has survived a post-race scare after a win at Eagle Farm which has confirmed a spring carnival path.

Jockey James Orman made the most of a wide barrier and an inside track bias, to bring Sold For Song ($3.90) down the outside fence to win the Listed Daybreak Lover Stakes (1400m).

However, several hundred metres after the post Sold For Song dumped Orman and took off by herself.

“Sold For Song saw Bernie (interviewer Bernadette Cooper) coming on her horse for the after-race talk and Sold For Song did a sharp turn and dislodged me,” Orman said.

“I am OK and luckily the clerk of course quickly caught her.”

Trainer Kevin Kemp said Sold For Song could now back up in the Sunshine Coast Guineas next Saturday and was a definite interstate campaigner in the spring carnivals.

“We will nominate for Caloundra and she will let us know about Friday if she is ready to race again. If not she can have a break and come back for the spring,” Kemp said.

“I haven’t decided exactly which races she will tackle in the south.

“She has raced well at 1600 metres but that was against three-year-olds and I don’t know if we might keep her to shorter trips.”

Sold For Song has been a bargain buy, already returning nearly $340,000 on her $2500 yearling price.

“It has been a wonderful trip with her and I just hope it continues,” Kemp said.

Zac Purton, who rode second-placed Salmanazar ($9), said his mount had tried hard and would be improved by further racing.

Jockey Hugh Bowman was not disappointed by Tsaritsa ($2.90) who was third after coming from last.

“She was concentrating on beating the second horse and not the winner. It wasn’t a bad effort,” he said.
