Waverley trainer Bill Thurlow picked up a win at his local meeting on Thursday when three-year-old filly Glamour took out the Ultra Scan 1000.

It was the second start for the daughter of Pins who finished third on debut at Ashburton last month.

Jockey Rosie Myers pushed forward early from their outside barrier to sit outside leader Meritorious.

Glamour hit the front at the top of the straight and she was able to hold out fast-finishing debutant Crowning Star, who was subsequently disqualified after jockey Lisa Allpress weighed in light, to win by a head.

“Rosie rode her perfectly,” Thurlow said. “She is not a high-speed filly, but she is so tough, she just keeps giving.

“I think she is a filly that will go right through the grades, I really like her.”

Meanwhile, Thurlow’s Group One-winning stayer Glory Days will have one final hit-out at the Foxton trials next week before departing for Australian shores.

The seven-year-old mare is on a Gr.1 Melbourne Cup (3200m) path and Thurlow is pleased with the way his stable star has pulled up after her unplaced first-up run on a testing heavy11 track at Otaki earlier this month.

“She is very well and has come through her first race in good order,” he said. “It was a disastrous track, so we have just put that behind us.

“We are happy with her and she will trial on Tuesday and all going well we will push on from there.”
