Flashy flies!

Exciting three-year-old Flashy Fella ran his way into Derby contention with a slashing victory in the De La Salle Centenary Plate at Caulfield on Saturday - the good looking chestnut overcoming trouble in running to find the line in determined style.

Travelling well for Glen Boss, Flashy Fella had to switch around Specter's heels as that horse drifted out in the run home and it is no easy task to regain momentum - but that is just what he did, digging deep when challenged over the final stages.

"He has always shown us a lot," a pleased Michael Moroney said, "and he just keeps improving."

"We thought early days he would just be a miler but he has got stronger and it was good to see him win over 2000m - it is nice to be proven wrong!"

There are several options for Flashy Fella but a crack at a Derby, whether it be in Sydney, Adelaide or Brisbane - we will have to sit down with the owners and have a drink and talk about it!"

Raced by Rosemont Stud's Anthony Mithen with Nigel Austin and Sam Curwood, Flashy Fella is a NZ $50,000 Karaka graduate by Thorn Park. A full brother to the stakes placed Mr Thorpedo, he is out of the unraced Volksraad mare Volkschine, full sister to the Listed winner Volksini from the family of the feature race winners Piachay, Eastern Joy and the Ballymore trained Pernod.

Thank you to Daryl Sherer for his lovely photo of our handsome boy at Caulfield today!
