Brass Eye salutes for first win in TBB Racing colours

*Article from

Brass Eye had the honour of being the first winner in the TBB Racing Navy and Pink colours, breaking her maiden at Sportsbet-Wangaratta under Lachie King at the weekend.

The Louise Bonella-trained filly won at just her third start, running second on debut.

"It is such a thrill for the team," Todd Blum said.

"A special feeling considering Don Henwood from Aaron Park is the majority owner of this filly and he has thrown plenty of support behind TBB Racing in our first year of operation.

"We always felt she was going to be at her best over a little bit of ground so for her to run so well on debut was a little bit of a surprise to most of us. However, it's no surprise to see her winning so early in her career and first go up around the mile.

"Don sourced this horse and we syndicated her and there are a lot of first time owners in her so it's a big thrill for those guys as well.

"To have a winner with our second runner and fourth start, it's pretty surreal. I'm looking forward to next year."

Brass Eye is by Choisir and is out of the Encosta De Lago mare Dabrowski. That makes her a half-sister to the Queensland winning machine Bollente, as well as the smart Chris Waller-trained four-year-old Breton.

Brass Eye has now been sent to the paddock and will be back a much more furnished and stronger filly in the Autumn.
