Named after a queen & now a race winner too

It was a long trip to Avoca but well worth it after Nefertiti scored her first career win.

Google proves to be the go to when naming many a racehorse and the daughter of American Pharoah was aptly named after one of the most mysterious and powerful women in ancient Egypt.  Nefertiti was queen alongside Pharaoh Akhenaten from 1353 to 1336 B.C and the owners of the equine version thinks she was queen of Avoca!

Gaining a start after being second emergency in the 1100m maiden,  the 3yr old filly jumped from barrier 5 with our very own Paul Gatt onboard.  “Gatty” let Nefertiti use her natural speed to roll straight to the lead from barrier 5.  She was never headed to win by 0.3L with a clear margin to the 3rd horse.

A $70,000 purchase from the 2022 Inglis Classic Sale, Nefertiti sees some of the stables most loyal clients as part of the ownership, including several of the staff.  

It was the fillies first win from only 2 starts, and the first run for the preparation.  Congratulations to all connections.
