Bound For Earth has taken out the Group 2 Furious Stakes at Royal Randwick Racecourse last Saturday September 7, 2013.
The three-year-old won the race ahead of heavily backed favourite, Guelph, who was edged out by a nose on the line.
The Northern Meteor filly has now won two of her four race starts and has earned more than $153,000 in prize money during her horse racing career.
Bound For Earth is trained by John O’Shea at Royal Randwick, and the trainer was at the track to watch the filly win her first Group race.
“She had no luck in Brisbane and we just ticked her over nicely and she had trialled nicely so we were hoping she’d run well,” O’Shea said.
“I think when she gets to a mile she will be at her best so her and Guelph and going to have some tussles over the next month or so but both fillies have got some improvement.
“Guelph looked to be a little big in condition and my filly is like a big hairy koala at the moment, they’ll both improve.”
Bound For Earth is nominated for the $1 million Thousand Guineas on October 19, 2013, where she will encounter Guelph once again.
Guelph, meanwhile, is also nominated for the $3 million Cox Plate at Moonee Valley Racecourse on October 26.
