THE Kendrick-Wheeler juggernaut shows no signs of slowing.
The pair has enjoyed tremendous success in recent weeks and combined again to knock off the first at Eagle Farm on Saturday (September 16).
Sebring Girl ($9), trained by Stuart Kendrick and ridden by apprentice Bailey Wheeler, stepped up to a mile and went one better than a last-start second over 1350m.
She was strong to the line to win a Class 3 (1600m) by a quarter-of-a length.
“She’s always been a really promising filly,” Kendrick said.
“It just took awhile for the penny to really drop,” he said.
“I thought her run the other day behind Tony’s (Gollan’s) horse (Star Of Chaos) was really good, and it’s flying.
“I was really keen to get her up to the 1600 and I think she’ll run even a bit further.
“They are a great bunch of owners .. So, they’ll be happy.”
Kendrick said Wheeler was in in great form.
“He’s flying, Bailey, and the three kilos, as I said last time, is just a bit of a bonus really,” he said.
“He rode her perfectly. We were worried there might be a bit of speed and it’s the way it played out.
“So, he just sat off, used his head, and she was tough at the end.”
Wheeler agreed the race map was a bit tricky, with a fair bit of speed.
He said Sebring Girl travelled really well and he just cuddled her a little for the long run home down the Eagle Farm straight.
“I can’t thank Stuey and connections enough. They keep supporting me day in, day out, and I couldn’t do it without them.”
