Dual Group One-winning sprinter Regimental Gal appears to have passed on her ability with her daughter Lilliburlero joining her son Regimental Pride as a Rosehill winner on Saturday.
Trainer David Payne said the stablemates were different types of horses but both had plenty of ability.
The winner of her only two starts, three-year-old Lilliburlero was retained by her breeder Bruce Neill while Regimental Pride went through the Magic Millions sale.
Payne said Lilliburlero’s late start to racing was due to niggling problems because of her size.
“She is a big, strong filly who throws to her sire Redoute’s Choice,” Payne said.
“She has had one or two problems that just took time.
“Regimental Pride is more like More Than Ready and they are small horses.”
Regimental Pride recorded his second career win in the two-year-old race on the program while Lilliburlero was the only filly in the Australian Turf Club Handicap (1400m).
Shading Long Lasting ($3.20) for favouritism, Lilliburlero ($3.10) was up on the pace from the outset and strode to a 1-3/4 length victory over Grand Business ($6).
Hunter Jack ($5) was another half length third while Long Lasting finished at the tail of the six-horse field.
Payne said Lilliburlero would have about 10 days in the paddock then be brought back to be prepared for an autumn campaign.
“I think eventually she will get up to a mile or even 2000 metres,” he said.
“But we’ll just give her a short autumn campaign, probably just two or three races.”
All going well, Regimental Pride will head to the Magic Millions race at Wyong on Thursday before the main event, the $2 million Magic Millions Classic on January 12 at the Gold Coast.
