New Glam on the block

New Zealand filly Glam Slam will make her Australian debut for trainer Danny O’Brien on Saturday at Flemington.

The three-year-old filly has had six career starts, all over 1200m, for two wins, three seconds and a Group 3 fourth.

On Saturday, the daughter of Pins will race in the three-year-old fillies’ handicap over 1200m down the Flemington straight.

“We are looking forward to seeing how she goes here in Australia as she is untapped and has shown a lot of potential based on her runs back home,” O’Brien said.

The horse was sent across to O’Brien by her owner, Gary Chittick (owner of Waikato Stud) who has had a tremendous association with the Flemington trainer.

O’Brien had great success with Waikato’s sprinting mare Glamour Puss (pictured above) who won the Salinger Stakes and Age Classic at Flemington as well as the Goodwood in Adelaide.

“It has been a terrific relationship and hopefully we can a result or two with this filly as well.”
