Byerley Park trainer Allan Peard believes he has another handy filly on his hands after One Kotukustreet’s debut win in the AJC On Facebook 1200 at Avondale on Thursday.
The three-year-old daughter of Ego was pushed forward from barrier seven by jockey Sam Spratt to take the early lead. The duo were able to dictate terms throughout with One Kotukustreet distancing her rivals to win by two and a quarter lengths.
Peard, who trains the three-year-old in partnership with Bruce Wallace, was pleased with the win and believes she is capable of reaching stakes company.
“It was a very nice win first up,” he said. “Her trial form was really good. She was never asked to do much at the trials, but today she went straight to the front and is very similar to her full-sister One Baker Street, so it’s good for the team involved.
“(The only difference is) she is so relaxed and laidback where One Baker Street is a bit more fierce, but it’s a good win today.
“She’s certainly up to stakes level.”
