Molly does it again!

22 Feb 2021


The Matthew Dale trained 3yo filly, Molly Nails (Tavistock), notched up her second win in a row last week, taking out the Canberra Guineas Preview at Thoroughbred Park.

Molly Nails won her previous start at Wagga by an arrogant 7.5L and backed up to win the Canberra Guineas lead up race in a very close finish. The filly was having just her third start, after one start in September for a second placing.

Bred by prolific owner, Fergus Doyle, Molly Nails is the first foal of Pins mare, Maritimo (NZ), who won the Listed Wellesley Stakes as a 2yo for Graeme Rogerson. Maritimo was purchased by James Harron Bloodstock at the 2017 Magic Millions Broodmare Sale, carrying Molly Nails, for $575,000. While Molly Nails was retained to race, Maritimo‚Äôs second foal - a colt by Snitzel - was sold at the 2020 Inglis Easter yearling sale for $475,000. Maritimo has a weanling filly by Fastnet Rock and is in foal to Pariah.
