Planet Claire gets her chance
Fri, 14 June, 2013
"Racing in career best form"Four year old mare Planet Claire (Zedrich x Juicy Secret)races with a new zest for life after winning three of her last four runs for trainer Helen Harding.
The mare went to the in form Simon Miller and failed to flatter in a trial before being moved to Esperance to give her a few wins and restore some confidence. That gamble failed to pay off but after a short spell and a run first up to blow out the cobwebs, Planet Claire has excelled under Harding's guidance.
Second up she ran on stoutly to grab the tearaway leader, Oroya, on the line. Two weeks later she stormed home from well back to claim her second win in the campaign.
Harding then brought her to town for the SkyTV Provincial Final at Belmont, where she was blocked for the entire straight and finished eleventh.
Back to Kalgoorlie last weekend and she blew them away with what was perhaps the performance of her career, finishing with a closing sectional of 34.25.
Planet Claire drops back to the 1200m on Saturday in the Perth Racing Handicap, but all she needs to do is bring her A-game and she'll be well and truly in the finish.
Best of luck to all her owners.
