New owner Gerry Harvey has kept former Tasmanian mare Lady Lynette in work and she will continue racing in Sydney under the care of Hall Of Fame trainer Lee Freedman.
Lady Lynette (7m Ladoni – Queen’s Own by Coronation Day) was purchased by Harvey under the Baramul Stud banner for $270,000 at the Inglis Easter Broodmare Sale last month. She was last seen losing a controversial protest in the G2 Sunline Stakes at Moonee Valley on March 23.
“We’ve got 22 in work and Lady Lynette is the highest rated horse in the yard and is definitely a great addition to the stable,” Freedman said this week. “She only had two weeks off after her last run at Moonee Valley so she’s pretty fit.”
Lady Lynette became the first Tasmanian-trained mare to earn over $1 million in prize money. She has won 14 races in 49 starts including the LR Vamos Stakes at Launceston three times.
The best of her mainland victories came in the G2 VRC Blazer Stakes at Flemington and G3 Tesio Stakes at Moonee Valley. She was a mere $13,000 buy from Armidale Stud at the 2006 Tasmanian Magic Millions.
