Thelma Likes Goulburn

21.02.14 After a nice win by PRICE WAR in Race 5, THELMA'S CHOICE made a good day for the stable better, by destroying her rivals in the Southern Highlands Equine Centre BM55 Handicap at Goulburn.

The race did not seem to have a lot of speed engaged, so with THELMA'S CHOICE stepping up to the 1600m, Padraig Peggy allowed the mare to roll forward under her own steam and control the tempo. With a soft run on the speed, THELMA'S CHOICE looked the winner a long way from home and sprinted quickly to deliver a 2.8 length victory at the same venue she had broken her maiden two starts previous.

Padraig Beggy was impressed with the win and suggested THELMA'S CHOICE would be able to step up to a better grade in the future.
