MORNINGTON-based trainer David Brideoake has unveiled another promising ‘Jen’ at Sale on Sunday 30 August with Peskijen breaking through for a convincing win on debut.

Brideoake, who claimed Group One glory with Princess Jenni last year and landed a dominant debut victory with Jenni’s Rainbow earlier this month, added Peskijen to the list of handy fillies he has in work.

Peskijen backed up her promising jumpouts with a decisive three-quarters-of-a-length victory in the second race at Sale.

Despite sitting three-wide the entire trip, the three-year-old daughter of Sacred Falls still proved too good for the Tony and Calvin McEvoy-trained Frankie Pinot and the Hawkes-trained Rubick Kingdom. They clocked the second quickest time of the three 1200m races on the day in 1:11.36. 

Trainer David Brideoake said he was glad to see the filly run as well as expected.

“I think she’s very promising and she beat a good field today, so I think that stands her in good stead as a progressive three-year-old filly,” Brideoake said. “She can start to elevate towards some city class races through the spring.”

Brideoake now has a couple of progressive fillies in Jenni’s Rainbow and Peskijen and believes they’re a “pretty similar type”. 

“She (Peskijen) has a pedigree to go a bit further,” he said. “The Savabeel mare (Queen Sabeel) was a pretty good racehorse that she’s out of, so she might be able to get out over a bit further.”

Brideoake said he’ll just continue to take it one step at a time with Peskijen.

“I’ll just progress with her quietly. We’ll probably go to a three-year-old 64 race next and see where it goes from there,” he said.
