So You Assume's winning ways

So You Assume closed her three-year-old season out in style with an emphatic win at Moonee Valley at the weekend against the mares.

Dean Yendall took the So You Think filly straight to the lead in the Victorian Wakeful Club Lady Of Racing Handicap, and he didn't see a horse in front of him for the entire race.

Yendall started his run as they headed to the final bend. As they turned for home, he had left them for dead, claiming the win by a widening four lengths.

"We thought coming here to Moonee Valley would really suit her," trainer Shane Nichols said after the race.

"She had run on soft tracks her last couple we felt that the firm wouldn't be a concern. She's probably at the peak of her powers and she's not very big so down in the weights were all a big plus."

Nichols believes she will get to 2000m in time, although whether she heads for a short break before a return for the back end of the Spring or if she stays at the level for a few more runs will be decided in the coming days.

It was So You Assume's third win of her 10 start career after having her first start a year ago to the day. She has placed a further three times also. She was sent for a spell after her win at Wodonga in February and she has netted two wins and a second in four starts this time in.

She has proven to be an excellent filly for her owners Gerard and Kaz Lazare so far after her purchase price of just $40,000 from the Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm draft at the 2019 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale.

So You Assume's win at The Valley has taken her earnings to a tick over $162,000.
