The Fire Inside makes pleasing return to Ellerslie

Following a luckless string of runs in black-type features, promising staying mare, The Fire Inside (pictured), produced a bold effort when running third at Ellerlsie on Saturday after a enjoying a short break.

Receiving no luck in the Listed Marton Cup last start, and before that losing her rider in the late stages of the Group 3 City of Auckland Cup, The Fire Inside has always showed well above average ability and her performance on Saturday provided connections with confidence going forward.

“It was a great run considering how far she got back and we feel she would have been very hard to beat if she was a touch closer,” co-trainer Chad Ormsby said.

“Opie just got into a bit of trouble early from one of the other horses and was forced to drop back, but she relaxed beautifully and Opie was taken by her strong turn of foot.”

Co-trainer Chad Ormsby has always rated The Fire Inside and believes there is a big race win in her and it will only be a matter of time.
