DAVID and Coral Feek’s talented filly, Ocean Miss, made a winning return to racing on Thursday 18 June by scoring a decisive win at Seymour.
The fourth placegetter in last year’s Group Three Ethereal Stakes, showed her class to win over 1300m with 60kg in what was a tight drive to the line.
Coming from off midfield, the three-year-old daughter of Ocean Park got to the outside and hit her straps in the straight to hold off the fast-finishing challenge from the Busuttin/Young-trained The Executioner.
Despite failing to fire in the Group One Kennedy Oaks in the Spring, Ocean Miss showed that she’s back and in for a good preparation with a further three-length gap back to third.
The up-and-coming filly provided the Mornington-based Feek stable with their first runner in a Group One race in the Spring.
While she wasn’t able to threaten in the Oaks, trainer David Feek believed the filly still had plenty of maturing to do.
“She’s still relatively immature skeletally and physically but she’s shown us that she’s capable of doing so much,” trainer David Feek said prior to the Oaks.
“These guys who are up at the top, most of them have had a horse to kick start them and a flagbearer to then move forward and hopefully this one is ours.”
Based off her first-up run, the filly looks to have come on leaps and bounds with Feek Racing saying their “excited” for her preparation ahead.
