Nicci's Gold breaks through for Gold Edge connections
Jun 18, 2017
Two-year-old Nicconi filly Nicci's Gold showed her class at Newcastle on Saturday breaking her maiden status at her fourth career start.
First-up this preparation at Bathurst, Nicci's Gold received no favours in transit to run home well in fourth after tiring late but back in distance at Newcastle, she proved too strong against a number of well-supported first-starters.
Jockey Josh Adams gave her a lovely, confidence building ride sitting off the speed in the early part of the race and then kept building momentum through the field from the top of the straight.
This filly is the first winner for the partnership of Gary Portelli Racing and Gold Edge Syndications.
