Talented Brisbane Tomboy

Rising Brisbane talent Tomboy enhanced her record with a brilliant win in the QARDSS Hcp (1350m) at Doomben on Wednesday.

The Robert Heathcote trained filly strolled home by more than three lengths from Our Triple Treat (Savabeel).  It brought up a double for Brisbane’s leading trainer after the earlier win by stablemate Diamond Heist (Pure Theatre).

“She couldn’t have been more impressive,” Heathcote’s 2IC Melissa Leitch said.  “She has won 4 of her 8 starts and has been unlucky in a couple of others.”

Tomboy (3f Murphy’s Blu Boy – Tomber by Jeune) was originally purchased from Baerami Thoroughbred for $10,000 at the 2009 Gold Coast Magic Millions by former Brisbane trainer Shaun Dwyer who is now based in Victoria.

“She showed ability but was injured so the owners sent her back to Brisbane to have a break and they decided to leave her up here.  She’s been a bit of a hot-headed filly and has taken time to settle down but is much better now.”

Tomboy is by former Baerami sire Murphy’s Blu Boy who died soon after transferring to Victoria last year.  Her dam Tomber is an unraced daughter of G3 winner Autumn Leaves (Salmon Leap).
