Bubbles Galore At Goulburn's Girls Day Out

Goulburn Race Club’s popular Girls Day Out starts a big month of racing action at the leading southern NSW track leading up to the Goulburn Cup on November 26.

Saturday’s gala meeting will see “bubbles” on offer off the track and in action on the track.

The appropriately named and locally trained filly Bubbles De Beer looks ready to party in the fillies and mares maiden over 1300m.


Her resume throws up some handy form lines. Back in July on her home track the filly was runner up to subsequent G2 winner and this week’s Victorian Oaks top four finisher Luvaluva.

Trained by Lisa Sheppard at the southern tablelands track, Bubbles De Beer’s early displays had the trainer thinking that there wasn’t much potential.

“She was purchased as an untried three-year-old from Victoria and in her first preparation was very unimpressive. At her first trial she finished last.” Sheppard said.

However, after a year in the paddock the filly has turned the corner with some very competitive efforts against genuine horses this time in.

“She has kept running into handy horses and did string together three seconds in a row, with one of those being behind Luvaluva who went on to win the Wakeful Stakes recently,” Sheppard said.

Sheppard liked her latest effort at Nowra behind Burden of Proof almost three weeks ago when she was an unlucky fourth.

Burden of Proof has since won a BM 61 on Melbourne Cup day at Kembla Grange.

The De Beers filly has been placed twice over this trip previously, and her trainer who recently scored a provincial win with Sylvie at Kembla Grange, is confident of further improvement.

Goulburn District Race Club CEO Robyn Fife is expecting a bumper crowd for the Girls Day Out meeting with plenty of action and entertainment on and off the track.

“We are expecting around 3000 people on track. Our Girls Day Out has progressed to just about the biggest event on Goulburn’s social calendar,” Fife said.

“The race meeting also represents day two of our inaugural November Cruise Series, with any trainer who has a runner throughout November entering the draw to win luxury cruise valued at $2000.”
