Florida Filly (Sioux Nation) Wins Her Maiden At Hamilton

Sioux Nation Filly Makes All To Maiden Victory

The improving Florida Filly (2f Sioux Nation - Cmonbabylitemyfire, by Piccolo) was not for catching in Thursday’s five furlong fillies’ maiden at Hamilton.

A promising fourth last time out, the Iain Jardine-trained bay made all for the first time on Thursday, with Jamie Gormley applying pressure approaching the final furlong. Running on well, she was never headed and kept on gamely to deny the favourite by three parts of a length.

Bred by Grange Stud and owned by J Fyffe, Florida Filly is a half-sister to the Orlaith (Fastnet Rock), who won a Stakes contest for the same connections.
