Quanabi can snatch another Polytrack win
Quanabi needed more than a year to record her second career win.
A drop in merit rating does not always result in a drop of weight for runners but it does allow them to run in weaker company.
And while they are able to do that, it often instils confidence in a racehorse and sees them get back on a winning trail.
That seems to be the case with Quanabi, who needed 14 tries and more than a year to record her second career win but now that she has, she can quickly follow up in Race 6 on the Polytrack at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Wednesday, in a MR 64 Handicap for fillies and mares over 1400m.
Quanabi’s merit rating had dropped 15 points prior to her recent success. She received a four-point penalty for her win, which also happened to be over 1400m on the Polytrack, but that should not be enough to trouble Wendy Whitehead’s charge on this occasion.
That last form line is looking good as runner-up Drive By came out to win in convincing fashion thereafter and third-placed Poursomesugaronme looked dangerous in her last start when second to Roy’s T’s.
Winning jockey Calvin Habib will be back in the irons for this race.
