Pearler win by Polly Grey8 Jul 2019

Polly Grey became the latest winner of an NZB Pearl Insurance bonus with a straightforward win in the $25,000 NZB INSURANCE PEARL SERIES RACE (Rating 72) over 1600 metres on Saturday.

The daughter of Azamour raced keenly for rider Alysha Collett early settling midfield albeit wide and once the pair straightened up, the mare relished in the going to score by two lengths to Cherry Lane (A.Calder) with favourite Codecrcaker (M.Coleman) three-quarters of a length back in third.

Polly Grey’s winning time was 1:40.43 (last 600m in 36.89) on a Heavy10 track.

“She was really impressive today,” trainer Kylie Fawcett said.
“Back to a track she loves and Alysha rode her perfectly.”
“It’s always a question mark stepping up in distance but she always seems to run her races ok, she just tripped up last start due to the sticky track.”
“It was a ten out ten ride by Alysha.”
Polly Grey secured the Level A Bonus with the win, which rewards the owner $20,000 bonus.
It was the four-year-old’s third win from eight start and takes her stakes past $31,000 for owners Brook Fawcett, Kylie Fawcett & Robin Joyce. - Mark Nowell
