At Scone in the NSW Hunter Valley, Leicht's View Farm's Gr1-placed stallion Ready As (More Than Ready-Neensie, by Solitary Hail) celebrated his first stakes winner when 3YO filly In A Wink (Ready As-Time Release, by Switch in Time) scored by 0.1-length for local trainer Greg Bennett in the $140,000 Listed Denise's Joy Stakes (1100m) for 3YO fillies, over fellow fillies Fine Mist (Good Journey-Mistifies, by Perugino) & Felines (Conatus-Jellicles, by Tale of the Cat). Bred by Errol and Gwen Leicht of Leicht's View farm near Tamworth, In A Wink took her record to 4 wins and 4 placings from 11 starts for $161,700 earnings. "She always has had a lot of ability this filly and home bred, Tamworth owners, it's a good result for the country. I am very pleased," Bennett told Breednet. "She is a stakes winner now so she is worth a lot more money than she was before." In A Wink is out of a half-sister to Gr1 Sires' Produce Stakes winner Shaybisc, dam of Group winners Sashed, Bradshaw and Asarka.
