Trainer Chloe Cumming was over the moon with the winning result of well-related three-year-old filly Crazy In Love when on debut in the Haunui Farm 1400m at Pukekohe Park on Wednesday.
The daughter of Turn Me Loose won her sole trial over 1300m on the Cambridge Synthetic earlier this month, but Cumming had doubts about how she would handle the Heavy10 surface on debut.
“The track was going to be a bit of an unknown, we didn’t know how she was going to go on a heavy track considering she won her trial on the synthetic,” Cumming said.
“Her sister (Yonce – winner of six of her seven starts and placed fourth in the Gr.1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes, 1600m) had form on the wet so we thought her ability might bring her through, which it did today.
“I think she will be better on a better surface.”
Cumming has high hopes for the filly but will speak with breeder-owners Lindsay de Souza and Todd Hartley, who also raced her sire Turn Me Loose, before making any concrete plans.
“We will speak with the owners and see what they want to do,” she said. “We don’t have any set plans as of yet. We will just see how she pulls up and go from there.”
Crazy In Love was one of three winners on the card by Turn Me Loose, whose eldest are just three.
