Mum fills void in Mt Waverley BY DANIEL TRAN

COVER: This week’s cover represents a selection of some of our past front pages and the stories you shared with us. Design: Ra Heng

‘I’m interested in doing what the community wants and then following through. I’m not interested in having my own agenda or any kind of party agenda. I just want to work for the people of Mount Waverley.’ Rebecca Paterson

BURWOOD resident Rebecca Paterson has been elected to Monash Council to fill the vacant seat left by the death of Mount Waverley councillor Tom Morrissey. Ms Paterson, 33, received the majority of Mr Morrissey’s votes during an electoral commission countback in Glen Waverley last week. As part of the process, the votes Mr Morrissey received were redistributed to other candidates. Ms Paterson told the Weekly she was excited about her new role and said residents could expect a new advocate. ‘‘That’s my biggest reason for getting into this role. I’m interested in doing what the community wants and then following through. ‘‘I’m not interested in having my own agenda or any kind of party agenda. I just want to work for the people of Mount Waverley.’’ During the 2012 council elections, Ms Paterson declared she was an independent candidate and not a member of any political party. ‘‘I don’t believe that council is a place for party politics,’’ she said. ‘‘We are there to represent the community, not a party agenda.’’ Last week, she listed rates, parking issues and inappropriate development as her biggest concerns. She described gross development as ‘‘anything that . . . doesn’t balance well with the rest of the properties in the area and doesn’t complement the current properties in the area’’. Ms Paterson said she supported the vegeta-

down. I would be happy if there were special circumstances made for those kinds of instances.’’ This is the stay-at-home mother’s first tilt at the council. She has lived in Monash for about nine years and her husband worked for Mr Morrissey as a plumber. ‘‘He’s been very excited for me, but he’s also still dealing with Tom’s death and the other ramifications (it’s) had for him as an employee and someone who’s so close to the (Morrissey) family on a daily basis.’’ Ms Paterson is pregnant with her second child but says she will be completing a full term on the council. ‘‘One of the advantages of being a stay-athome mum is that my time is flexible. I’m able to work with the council as they need at this stage.’’ Ms Paterson’s election will raise the number of women councillors to three.

The Victorian Government provides funding for local councils to help support the installation of public safety CCTV systems to help make communities safer, including the costs of buying and installing CCTV infrastructure such as CCTV cameras and equipment to transmit, monitor and store camera footage. Available evidence suggests that CCTV can be an effective crime prevention tool at a local level, especially when used in combination with other local crime prevention strategies.

BY DANIEL TRAN LAWYERS defending a declared pit bull have renewed an appeal in the Supreme Court in the hope of overturning its death sentence. The dog’s owner, Jade Applebee of Mount Waverley, now faces a second anxious wait to determine whether the case will proceed to a full hearing. For the case to be heard, the court must find there are grounds to argue that Justice Zammit, who presided over the initial Supreme Court application, made an error of law in her ruling last month. Monash mayor Micaela Drieberg said the council hoped the hearing would be held in the near future. ‘‘It’s become quite a drawn-out matter, which I don’t think is helpful for anyone involved,’’ she said. ‘‘We’d obviously prefer not to be going to the Supreme Court again on this matter when the court’s previous ruling was so clear-cut. However, we respect the legal rights of the dog’s owner to make this last appeal.’’ The appeal follows the drama of a mass protest and bomb threat as authorities prepared to euthanase the dog which was to be put down two weeks ago. Intervention from the Barristers Animal Welfare Panel stalled the move. The 11th-hour reprieve came as protesters gathered at the RSPCA in Burwood where Kerser was being

Drawn out: Monash mayor Micaela Drieberg and dog owner Jade Applebee with a picture of Kerser. Picture: Rob Carew held. They were evacuated from the premises following a bomb threat to the building. The protests were partly organised on a Facebook page started by Ms Applebee. The page titled ‘Free Kerser’, has more than 11,000 ‘likes’. An international petition — entitled ‘Save Kerser from being euthanized! (sic)’ — was also circulated and called on Premier Denis Napthine to spare the dog. It received almost 25,000 signatures within days. The campaign was led by Canadian woman Carrie Rogers, who also lists ‘No more Foie Gras’ and ‘Remove the I hate dogs’ page from Facebook’’, among the causes she supports.

was owed a $5000 refund for being overcharged. She became concerned when, after refusing to give him her bank details, he asked to confirm her date of birth. ‘‘I said, ‘What have you got as my date of birth? You tell me and I’ll tell you if you’re correct.’ He said, ‘No no no, you’ve got to confirm your date of birth with me because I’m from the ATO’.’’ After refusing several times, he acquiesced and gave Ms Speechley an incorrect date. She hung up and called the tax office, which confirmed it had not contacted her since December. Ms Speechley contacted the Weekly to warn other residents against giving out their personal details. ‘‘I’m just concerned that somebody will be sucked in because they’ll just hear ’$5000 refund cheque’ and they will hand over every bit of information they can.’’ Ms Rule said consumers should always be wary as scams were becoming more sophisticated. ‘‘Scammers will claim to be from well-known banks, online retailers, credit card companies, or government bodies in order to trick people into revealing personal bank details or other information, which is misused or sold to other scammers.’’

BY DANIEL TRAN WITH tax-time looming, the Australian Taxation Office and Consumer Affairs Victoria are warning Monash residents to stay vigilant after a surge in the number of scams duping locals into giving up their cash or revealing personal details. Between January and March this year, the ATO received almost 11,000 reports of email scams — almost triple that of the same time last year. Consumer Affairs Victoria reports that in 2012, it received more than 3350 enquiries and complaints about scams. But spokeswoman Libby Rule said the real figures could be higher because many scams went unreported. Ms Rule said that thieves, in addition to seeking cash, were also after a victim’s personal details — a practice known as ‘phishing’. Last year, CAV received more than 200 reports of phishing scams. Glen Waverley’s Nerida Speechley was recently contacted by a conman posing as a tax office official. ‘‘He knew my address, my name and my phone number,’’ she said. The conman told Ms Speechley that she

BOLLYWOOD dance is typically a thing of exuberance and colour, a celebration. Rarely is it linked to stress, but choreographer Hithanjanee Yatawara’s path to Bollywood began with the pressure of university examinations. She and her friends discovered it as a form of release. ‘‘When things were getting a bit stressful we’d start dancing in our spare time,’’ she remembers. ‘‘Eventually we started performing for university functions and cultural shows and it just really kicked off after that.’’ Together, they formed the Bindaas Bollywood Dance Company and for the past seven years they have been a constant of Melbourne’s Bollywood scene. Bollywood dancing refers to the style of dancing that has become prominent through Indian cinema. Today, the group performs at hen’s nights, corporate events and even children’s parties. Most of their performances are for people of non-Indian background. ‘‘We hardly ever work with Indian, Sri Lankan or South Asian people. It’s mainly the general Australian population,’’ Mrs Yatawara says. ‘‘People are getting more aware of

Boogie nights: The Bindaas Bollywood Dance Company, including Hithanjanee Yatawara (bottom, left), will perform in South Oakleigh to raise money for the Women’s Development Foundation of Sri Lanka. it and I guess everyone’s wanting to do something different as well, and Bollywood’s something anyone can do.’’ The group will be performing at a charity event in South Oakleigh next Sunday, June 30, to fundraise for the Women’s Development Foundation of Sri Lanka. Mrs Yatawara said the money will be used to teach disadvantaged Sri Lankan women skills to help them return to the workforce.

‘‘Sri Lanka’s such a small country and it’s just only recently recovered from a civil war. They’re still focusing on other issues in the country. ‘‘The (Women’s Development) foundation’s goal is to focus on these little things . . . in order to help bring it back up to what it used to be.’’ The night will involve a silent auction, a raffle and a range of performances including those from Bindaas. There will also be bellydancers, ballroom dancers and a traditional Maori performance. ‘‘It’s actually a night of multicultural performances. There’s variety for people of any background and any age.’’ Mrs Yatawara invited residents to the event. ‘‘Definitely come because it’s such a vibrant and colourful show. It’ll be extremely intriguing to see such a variety of performances from different backgrounds.’’ The Bindaas Bollywood Dance Company will hold its charity concert at 5pm on Sunday, June 30, at South Oakleigh Secondary College on Barkers Road, Oakleigh South. Cost: Adults $15, children $10, families $45. Details: 0402 766 461 or info@ bindaasbollywood.com.au

are those who continue to do the wrong thing and those people should know that they will be caught. “Payment of fines is not optional. People are liable for their outstanding infringements and continuing to ignore them will not make them go away.” Drivers who continue to ignore the fines risk having their car seized or wheels clamped. In other cases, licences could be suspended and in extreme instances drivers may be arrested. Mr Facey has previously said that motorists are given at least three reminders to pay their outstanding fines before a warrant is issued. ‘‘Ignoring fines results in additional fees and penalties added to the original fine amount. It can result in a warrant being issued against you and Sheriff’s officers taking action and applying sanctions,’’ he said. ‘‘It is easy for someone to ignore a number of fines and in a matter of months owe thousands of dollars. This is why it’s important for people to deal with their fines early. The earlier you pay your fine, the less you pay.’’

AN ONGOING blitz by the Victorian Sheriff has uncovered an extra $162,000 in unpaid fines in Monash, this time in Mount Waverley. Sheriff’s officers nabbed 18 fine dodgers who had 564 outstanding warrants between them in a recent operation on Stephensons Road. Four serial offenders, who together had 306 warrants totalling $86,000, were warned that their licences or registration would be suspended if they did not pay up within a week. Eleven other drivers paid their fines in full, swelling the government’s coffers by $8500. The Mount Waverley sting was the second operation of its kind in Monash in recent weeks. On May 30, the Sheriff’s Office targeted motorists on Waverley Road, Chadstone, and caught 12 drivers with 206 outstanding warrants totalling almost $65,000. Victorian Sheriff Brendan Facey said his office would continue its tough approach to fine evasion with more stings. “While most Victorians do the right thing and pay their fines on time, there

Many senior people in City of Monash are asset-rich but income-poor. They live in properties with high rateable value — the high site value makes council and water rates and land tax (if applicable) accordingly high. Thus owners must bear the burden of unreasonable increases in utility charges and rates. The way the council calculates the rate increase is based on simple arithmetic. Someone pulls out a magical number and applies that to last year’s budget rate income. If the budget was high and incorrect, the following years’ budgets will become unrealistically rubbery and the impact is compounded.

No. Jet I am sick and tired of reading comments by people like the mayor, and the RSPCA who throw up their hands and say ‘It’s not my fault — it’s the law’. Well, to them I say: the ‘‘law’’ is wrong.

FEATURESTORY

Tales from the truck stop B-triple trucks measuring more than 36 metres are set to hit the Monash Freeway and EastLink. The government says the move will decrease the number of heavy vehicles on the road. CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS talks truck safety with industry players in Melbourne’s east and south-east. T may soon be ‘over and out’ for the CB radio call signs of truckies, says heavy-vehicle driver of 28 years Curtis Rayner. High up in his leather-clad Kenworth cabin, the Yarra Valley truckie uses the CB more for traffic alerts these days, rather than enjoying banter with mates during long convoy runs interstate. This year, Rayner has swapped the massive interstate treks for cross-city jobs for Dandenong-based Membrey’s Transport & Crane Hire. Gone are the convoys and the call signs — a sign of a changing culture, the younger breed supplanting the older drivers’ camaraderie. Rayner says it used to be hard to get a truckdriving job, taking years of hanging around, learning the ropes and riding as a passenger for long treks. ‘‘You had to earn that trust,’’ he says. ‘‘It was like an apprenticeship. You learned the culture.’’ These days, a one-day course at a driving school for $1300 is a guarantee of work — ‘‘there’s such a demand for drivers’’ — but carries no appreciation of the truckie’s code, according to Rayner. He hasn’t had a serious crash, though he vividly remembers narrowly avoiding a jackknife at 100 km/h on the way to Sydney. As he rounded a corner, he swerved by banked-up traffic on a windy pass. Nothing serious came of that. Some of his mates, however, have been killed. One fatigued mate died after crashing into a stationary prime mover in a highway parking bay, also killing the truckie in the second vehicle. When things go wrong, they can go monstrously wrong in a truck. When fatalities happen, Rayner feels the whole industry gets tarred. There have been recent moves to further regulate trucks clogging up Melbourne’s roads. The state government recently abandoned plans for bans on trucks in the Monash Freeway’s right-hand lane, despite pressure from the RACV. “VicRoads traffic modelling suggests that introducing [such] restrictions on the Monash Freeway would add to congestion and have very limited safety benefit,’’ Roads Minister Terry Mulder said in March. Instead the government introduced 36.5-metre B-triples, otherwise known as high-productivity freight vehicles, which could carry two 12-metre containers on major roads such as the Monash. Four B-triples could carry the same load as six 26-metre B-double trucks — in theory reducing the number of heavy vehicles on Victorian roads. Trucks are banned from the right-hand lanes of Princes Highway between Geelong and Melbourne and the Eastern Freeway. The restrictions haven’t helped traffic flow, Rayner says. ‘‘If a truck is doing 100 km/h in a 100 zone, what difference does it make? It’s neither here or there. ‘‘It almost has a negative effect. When you

I

Road loner: Curtis Rayner. overtake someone in the middle lane doing 90, it forces you to go in the left lane, which is dangerous and wrong. It also causes more congestion in the left lane for merging traffic.’’ Yugo Driving School and Dandy Truck Sales managing director John Sculac says right-handlane bans should be placed on trucks on city roads, particularly the inner-city tunnels. He said too many heavy trucks are ‘‘up the arse of cars all the time’’. There should be a compulsory space between vehicles, such as 70-100 metres, to ward off tailgaters. ‘‘I haven’t heard of anyone getting booked for tailgating,’’ Sculac says. ‘‘If someone’s not a safe distance behind, book him!’’ ‘‘If you go through Italy, trucks are only allowed to go at 90 km/h and cars 130. All the trucks are in the side lane — you see 400 trucks sit there at 90 and everyone’s happy. ‘‘Here you see more semi-trailers in the right lane than in the left lane. All the exits are on the left and they want to be in the right lane. They do it because they can.’’ There’s no mandatory minimum for hours of training. Some drivers put in as little as a few hours’ training at a truck school before they get a licence — six hours behind the wheel for a B-double licence. Sculac says there should be a compulsory 20-hour minimum to iron out some

of the ‘‘cowboys’’. It would take a one-day course cost from $1300 to $3000. ‘‘It would give us more work, yes. But it will also make sure there are better drivers. ‘‘At the moment they’re with us for a day. We’re not going to have much impact on their attitude.’’ ‘‘Cars can be at fault but the truck drivers are supposed to be professionals. Treat the car drivers as though they are idiots and allow for that.’’ Rayner argues that trucking has become less fun, especially under a Victorian police crackdown two years ago on doctored logbooks, drugged drivers and tampered speed limiters. At its height, Rayner was pulled over three times during a trip to Sydney. Several of his mates have been ‘‘hounded’’ out after a series of fines by the police’s heavy vehicle unit. After a 45-minute inspection — including a drug test — by the side of the road, a driver could foot more than $700 in several fines. ‘‘You’re shitting yourself when you get pulled over, thinking how much it will cost you. We’ve got guys dropping off left, right and centre.’’ By law, a truckie is limited to 12 hours’ driving a day, coupled with at least 12 hours’ rest. Any small mistake in the logbook can attract a fine. The crackdown has stopped companies push-

ing impossible errands on drivers. Rayner says he was told to drop off a load in Campbelltown, near Sydney, at 9pm and return to Essendon by 7am the next day. Rayner says many have retired, stressed out by the fines and ‘‘Big Brother looking over your shoulder’’. He admits there used to be some cowboys on the road but ‘‘going up the highway in long convoys used to be good fun’’. ‘‘I preferred the long highway trips. You get used to doing your own thing and no one can bother you.’’

Drivers leave door open for thieves BY DANIEL TRAN THIEVES are uncovering a treasure trove of items in unlocked cars across Monash. The most recent incident last Sunday week resulted in eight cars on residential streets in Mulgrave being cased and targeted by thieves. Between Sunday night and Monday morning, thieves broke into two cars and entered several others that were unlocked and parked on nature strips in Stadium Circuit, Derby Place, Westham Court and Morawa Drive. The offenders stole a series of tradesmen’s tools. Investigators currently have no avenues of enquiry but believe the crimes are linked. About the same time that night, numberplates from two cars were also stolen. Leading Senior Constable Julie Rushton from the Monash crime investigation unit said stolen registration plates were used by thieves to steal petrol from service stations and to evade tolls.

She advised residents to ensure their numberplates were bolted to their cars if they had the opportunity to do so. Police employ automatic numberplate recognition technology in order to detect stolen plates. Cameras mounted on top of surveillance vehicles scan up to 2000 number plates in seconds. The data is then matched to police databases to identify stolen and unregistered cars. ‘‘It’s a pretty good system,’’ Leading Senior Constable Rushton said. She encouraged drivers to stay vigilant and to lock their cars because thieves in residential areas were unwilling to smash windows. ‘‘Generally speaking, they will just keep walking around until they find vehicles that are open and they’ll take whatever’s in them.’’ Anyone with information about any thefts can call Crime Stoppers, 1800 333 000 or visit the website at crimestoppers.com.au.

MOTORING ●

X marks a new SUV high point Derek Ogden road tests the Subaru Forester XT rom pirate treasure map to automobile designation, the letter ‘X’ marks the spot of something excitingly special. This is never truer than with the Forester XT, Subaru’s new high-performance mid-size SUV. A best-seller since pioneering the highperformance SUV class in 1997, the latest Forester XT shows off an array of new features, technology and styling to stir Forester fans new and old. New engine and transmission technology from Subaru manufacturer Fuji Heavy Industries has shifted the Forester performance up into what is almost a segment of its own. The 2.0-litre horizontally opposed Boxer motor makes use of direct petrol injection to pump out 177 kW of power at 5600 rpm and 350 Nm of torque between 2400 and 3600 rpm, a 4.7 per cent power gain and 9.4 torque increase over its predecessor. This is accompanied by a 19 per cent gain in fuel efficiency and 20.6 per cent improvement in emissions. Towing ability has also gone up by

F

12.5 per cent to 1800 kg for a trailer with brakes. On the outside, the Forester XT has gone from an amenable compact all-wheel-drive wagon 16 years ago to a mid-size SUV with substantial street presence from its bulked-up body. Not that aerodynamics have suffered, with efficiency improved by 11 per cent. The rush from zero to 100km/h can be done in an impressive 7.5 seconds. All Forester XTs are fitted with Subaru Intelligent-Drive which serves up engine and automatic transmission characteristics to suit various driving styles, preferences and conditions. Cabin storage is plentiful and versatile, as is the easily accessed rear cargo area which can take 422 litres of gear with rear seat back up and 1457 litres with it folded. Forester 2.0 XT also includes reversing camera, electric sunroof, dual zone airconditioning, multifunction display, 18-inch alloy wheels and silver roof rails, and is priced from $43,490 plus on-road costs.

More muscle: The Subaru Forester XT delivers a high level of performance with looks to match.

Falcons rise to top in gold medal style BY ROY WARD FOR many years Waverley Falcons under-18 sides weren’t considered in the top echelon in Victorian junior basketball. In odd seasons the Falcons fielded strong sides but for the most part they were middle of the rung, but that has changed following the Falcons’ win in the under-18 boys competition at the National Junior Classic on Queen’s Birthday Monday. The Falcons beat South Australian club Sturt 72-56 in the gold medal game at Dandenong Stadium and the victory was an important one for the Falcons, who entered the competition as favourites after entering the long weekend on top of the Victorian championship. The Classic is an invitation-only tournament that brings together the best club sides in Australia in under-12s, under-14s, under-16s and under-18s in boys’ and girls’ divisions. The Falcons’ win comes after five straight years of strong results at under-18 boys level in both the Classic and Victorian championship play. Falcons coach Eric Minerve praised his players for withstanding the pressure of being favourites

in a very strong field. ‘‘This is where a changing of the guard is happening,’’ he said. ‘‘When people spoke about Waverley 10 years ago no one put us in the top sides. In the last five years we’ve now produced the highestperforming under-18 team in Victoria. Every year we have had a top-four side. We’ve won some Classics and VC titles. ‘‘In the past when we had been successful it was when no one expected it. This time it had a different mentality because we were targeted by other teams. They were prepared and we took everyone’s best hit, yet still prevailed.’’ Sturt, which beat the Falcons comfortably in last year’s Classic, pulled away to a 15-point lead in the gold medal game before the Falcons forced themselves back into the match and took victory in the second half. ‘‘Sturt was a smaller athletic team so they tried to run and expose our bigs on the perimeter by getting them into one-on-one isolation,’’ Minerve said. ‘‘They disrupted us a bit at the start but we addressed those problems during the game. ‘‘We went to our centre, Matthew McCarthy, and our best guard, Deng Adel. They are our strength and when they started to make plays then other players started to contribute.

Classic champions: Waverley Falcons under-18 boys celebrate their win at the National Junior Classic. ‘‘Matthew won the game most valuable player award, but I would have loved to see it be a dual award because they were equal with each other. ‘‘Deng drew double and triple teams at times, so was able to dump off to Matthew for dunks.’’ The Falcons have also done well in developing teams that bring players from the Sudanese community into their club. ‘‘We have done a lot of work with families in the Sudanese community in five years. We’ve built trust because we have done the right thing by the kids,’’ Minerve said. ‘‘The thing is, we treat them the same, no dif-

Patchy Central faces finals fight MONASH University Central has left itself with some work to do to make the Devine Victorian Netball League finals after falling to Booroondara Genesis on Wednesday night. Central lost 50-44 to Genesis and struggled to handle their muchimproved opponents. Genesis is now equal on points with Central, who hold fifth place by percentage. Central coach Leesa Maxfield said her side hadn’t performed too badly but some lapses in play had cost them dearly. ‘‘In some ways they did all right; in others we weren’t consistent with what we did,’’ she said. ‘‘So that makes our job that much harder when you look at making the finals.’’ Maxfield said her players had to stand tall against more physical sides after struggling against the Genesis. ‘‘Genesis have improved heaps and changed to a more physical playing style. ‘‘It’s a style we have got to get used to. We will keep working hard against better teams. It will make us stronger and make us work harder. ‘‘We still have matches against Peninsula Waves, Western Lightning and North-East Blaze, so there are

some tough games ahead.’’ Maxfield said matches in the VNL were becoming more physical and players had to adapt. ‘‘They [Genesis] have become more physical. In other games we have played it’s been a good, hard strong netball contest. ‘‘This time they were a bit more physical. Our players do seem to struggle against that sort of style, while the top teams are quite good at handling that.’’ Maxfield said Steph Tyrell and Sarah Main were good for Central, as was Tegan Ashmore in her first full game back on court. ‘‘We didn’t force as many turnovers as we would have liked. There is an area we have to do better in.’’ — Roy Ward

VNL championship ladder: VU Western Lightning 44 points, 122.33 per cent; City West Falcons 44, 120.07; Peninsula Waves 42, 140.69; Southern Saints 36, 120.06; Monash University Central 32, 116.14; Boroondara Genesis 32, 113.11; North East Blaze 20, 108.77; Yarra Valley Grammar Ariels 20, 90.66; UB Ballarat Pride 6, 58.84; Geelong Cougars 0, 57.66.

Spirit of Heaven scores timely Sandown triumph WELL-related filly Spirit of Heaven posted a timely win with a stellar debut in Wednesday’s $35,000 2014 Blue Diamond Nominate Now Plate (1000m) at Sandown. The daughter of Savabeel unveiled an explosive finishing burst to score an impressive victory just days after older threequarter sister Lights of Heaven was retired from racing. The symbolism was not lost on Peter Moody, who trains Spirit of Heaven and also put the polish on Lights of Heaven. “We retired Lights of Heaven this week, so this is a fitting win,” the Caulfield horseman said. Just like Lights of Heaven, who made the racing world sit up and take notice when she stormed home from last down the outside rail to score at just her second start, Spirit of Heaven announced herself with a Sandown statement. Jockey Luke Nolen settled her just worse than midfield and did not edge her into the clear until well into the straight, but she then found top gear quickly and

stormed over her rivals for a dominant win. A $9 chance, Spirit of Heaven scored by 1 1 ⁄ 4 lengths from another well-related filly, Samaready’s half-sister Samarmeteors ($2.40 favourite), with the Brian Mayfield-Smith trained Mighty Ginseng ($3.80) three-quarters of a length away third. Moody said the New Zealandbred filly – who is by a son of Lights of Heaven’s sire Zabeel and out of the same dam, I’m In Heaven – did a fantastic job over an unsuitable trip in her debut preparation. “We educated her over there [New Zealand], spelled her and came here and this if her first prep off the plane,” Moody said. “She’s gone all the way through, which is a bloody big effort because a month ago we were thinking we’d probably trial her and put her out. “It’s hard to take a line off today, but regardless she’s going to be a nice filly and she’s going to be better suited at a mile, a mile and a quarter.”
