Bart­ley rules Scone as To Ex­cess fires

Sunday Territorian - - SPORT -

A RESUR­GENT Tracey Bart­ley has en­joyed a Scone Cup Car­ni­val to re­mem­ber.

Bart­ley ended the two days of rac­ing with three win­ners when promis­ing sprinter To Ex­cess won the Orten­sia Stakes yes­ter­day.

To Ex­cess’s clear-cut win in the Listed sprint fol­lowed sta­ble­mate In Good Time’s vic­tory in the Denise’s Joy Stakes at the same level.

The Bart­ley-trained Bare Naked Lady won Fri­day’s 100,000 Inglis Two-Year-Old Chal­lenge.

Bare Naked Lady started favourite while To Ex­cess ($4.20) was sent out the sec­ond elect be­fore beat­ing Le Cor­don Bleu by 2¾ lengths.

In Good Time was the lesser fan­cied of the trio, go­ing out as a $16 chance be­fore show­ing her tough­ness to beat She Knows ($9.50) by a short neck.

In Good Time’s record stands at six wins from six starts with Matthew Cahill, who rode her in her first two races at Dubbo and Welling­ton, re­sum­ing his as­so­ci­a­tion with her at Scone.

“She is very good,” Bart­ley said. “(Re­tired trainer) Bernie Howlett bred her and sent me a photo and we bought her for $10,000.

“I think she will go to the pad­dock now and we will look for bet­ter races for her next time in.”
