The only way is up from a Monday maiden at Ararat and there’s plenty of upside to Hill Of Faith.
Hill Of Faith (3g Keep The Faith – Firhill by Marauding) opened his
account in the Marx Asbestos Removing Hcp (1100m) and there are more
wins ahead for the lightly-raced gelding.
Hill Of Faith had put the writing on the wall for trainer Alan Browell
with a eye-catching second to Laugh At Life at Ballarat on April 2.
Starting a $3 favourite at Ararat, Hill Of Faith led the field and then
dropped them for dead at the top of the straight. There was 8 lengths
between the placegetters Grey Dignity (Marwina) and Ruby Kwick (Racer's
Edge) at the finish.
Browell also trains his older half-sister Two Hills (Hillman) who has won 7 races and over $300,000 in and around Melbourne.
They were bred by Greta West Stud and, in the last two years, their dam
Firhill has foaled a filly and colt by Churchill Downs.
