Another Darley 2yo Makes Winning Appearance

Not content to sit on their five two year old Group One victories this season, Darley have produced another exciting two year old.

Appearance made a winning debut for trainer Guy Walter at Canterbury yesterday, winning the Bacardi Bar Handicap over 1200m.

The filly became the second winner Walter has trained for Sheikh Mohammed this week, after Matignon saluted at Randwick on Monday.

Walter now trains 11 Darley owned two year olds, and almost scratched Appearance from the race because of the rain affected surface. However he decided to run her and the filly who produced in the final stages to go home a winner ahead of Memphis Mafia and Room to Boom.

“She did a great job,” Walter said.

“Pat rode her to my instructions, he rode her quietly early and she got the split at the top of the straight and showed good ability and good determination. I thought it was a very impressive debut.

“She’d had a couple of preparations in the stable and this time in with the two trials under the belt she was nice and fit for today.

“You never like to run them first up on a heavy track but these days there is not much choice and she did get practice at it in her trials.”

One man who was very appreciative that the filly was not scratched was jockey Patrick Murphy.

Murphy, who is the son of the Australian Turf Club’s General Manager Lindsay Murphy, produced a well-timed ride for the filly to hit the front in the shadows of the post.

“It’s been a while since I’ve ridden a winner here, but I know the place like the back of my hand,” said Murphy.

“When the track was put up to Heavy I actually rang Dad to make sure the races were still going ahead, at least until race four.

“I knew on her work that she would get through it and I was just hoping the races went on.”

Appearance is the daughter of Commands and a full sister to the Peter Snowden trained Mascareri, who also has an excellent record on wet tracks.
