PINEAPPLE GIRL CRUSHES HER RIVALS

Pineapple Girl justified Mike Moroney’s pre-race confidence with a dominant win at Sale on Sunday.

Racing for just the third time, the three-year-old daughter of Olympic Glory was allowed to settle towards the rear of the field in the early stages of the Maiden Plate over 2238m before beginning a wide move passing the 600m.

Damien Thornton kept Pineapple Girl balanced around the home turn before allowing her to stride on and past the long time leader Let’s Nail It to go clear and score by 4-1/2 lengths at the line.

Moroney said before the race he would be disappointed if Pineapple Girl did not go close to winning and he was pleased with the performance.

“She’s bred to stay and she was out to a suitable distance which helped,” Moroney said. “To see her put them away like that, against albeit modest opposition, was most pleasing.

“Physically she’s still some way off the finished article but she’s done a good job this time in and she’s open to a fair bit of improvement.

“She comes from a stout Juddmonte family so she can probably get over a bit further but we’ll see how she comes through this before making any firm plans."

Pineapple Girl was purchased by Paul Moroney as a yearling for $38,000 at the Inglis Classic Sale.
