Instinct Kicks In For Killer First-Up Win

Talented 4YO Animal Kingdom mare Killer Instinct picked up where she left off last preparation when winning first-up at Newcastle on Sunday. Following a trial last Tuesday, John sent Killer Instinct to the races 5 days later in a suitable Class 2 over 1400m. From barrier 4, she was able to settle on the fence in a mid-field position and work her way through the field. The staying bred mare knuckled down over the last 50m to win by 0.16L, defeating the Kim Waugh trained Calabasas and the well fancied runner Time Raid.

"That was a really good win" commented apprentice Billy Owen after the race. "She's in for a fantastic preparation over alot further distances.

Killer Instinct is managed by Champion Thoroughbreds on behalf of our American connections LNJ Foxwoods, clients of Jason Litt & Alex Solis. She was purchased by the Solis/Litt Bloodstock team at the 2017 Inglis Easter Sale for $320,000 from the Arrowfield Stud Draft. She's backed by a mammoth pedigree being a half-sister to Group 2 winner Miss Fabulass, out of Group 1 winning mare Samantha Miss.
