My Sweetchilliphilly produced a performance that defies belief to win the Group One Bathurst Gold Tiara.
The daughter of Betterthancheddar not only won but she did so in Australasian record time and won by almost seven lengths.
Starting from the back row, My Sweetchilliphilly worked forward to the breeze to sit outside of race favourite Lady Chatto in the first half of the race.
Those two cleared out from the field coming off the back straight. However My Sweetchilliphilly simply went by Lady Chatto and cruised to 20.9 metre win, giving driver Chris Geary his maiden Group One success.
The time of 1:54.7 eclipsed the previous Australasian record time of 1:55 for two year old fillies over the distance which was jointly held by Dream About Me and Jossie James.
The Team Tritton trained filly is now undefeated in three starts and those three wins have come by a cumulative margin of 102.9 metres.
The ease of her wins makes it scary to think about just how good she can be.
Betterthancheddar's oldest progeny anywhere in the World are two year olds in Australia and New Zealand, so to get a star such as My Sweetchilliphilly so quickly is quite special.
My Sweetchilliphilly was bred by Melissa Tapp and is out of the In The Pocket mare Tact Philly.
