Winning legacy of legendary mare

Ballymore saddled up two promising lightly raced horses in the Greta West Stud Maiden Plate at Benalla on Saturday and we were delighted when both ran extremely well - If It Don't Fit charging home for victory whilst Think To Myself was also doing his best work late to finish a close up third.

Having only his third start, If It Don't Fit appreciate the step up to the mile for the first time and his win came as no surprise after his excellent second at Kyneton the start before.

Described by Michael Moroney as "a really nice young staying horse," If It Don't Fit is a son of the New Zealand based shuttler Iffraaj who has done a very good job in both hemispheres.

A $NZ100,000 purchase for Paul Moroney at the 2011 New Zealand Bloodstock Select Yearling Sale, If It Don't Fit is raced by GG Syndicate Ltd (manager Gerard Peterson), Gurners Bloodstock Co Syn (manager Andrew Ramsden) and the ARK Syndicate.

He is the first winner for the unraced Groom Dancer mare Major Force, a half-sister to the stakes winning Adelaide Cup runner-up Homewrecker.

This is an historic New Zealand family, If It Don't Fit being a descendant of the legendary mare Desert Gold who won 36 races including 19 in a row.
