Sensible Princess.

Group Two-winning mare Sensible Princess will contest the Listed The Ultimate Ford and Mazda Tauranga Classic (1400m) later this month after pleasing her connections with her first-up placing at Trentham last month.

The Fraser Auret-trained mare finished third behind Comeback and Art Deco over 1400m and he believes she will thrive in the wet track conditions over the winter months.

“She seems quite adept in those conditions,” he said. “I was absolutely thrilled with her run at Wellington and the way she pulled up as well.

“We are going to go directly into the Tauranga weight-for-age in two weeks with her. She’s a Group Two winner previously and I am really happy with where she is at.”
