WELL bred filly Isometry broke her maiden status with a game win under lights at The TOTE Racing Centre in Launceston on Thursday night and it came as no surprise to her co-trainer David Brunton who prepares the filly at Seven Mile Beach with his son and partner Scott.

Isometry (Anthony Darmanin) raced outside of the leader to the home turn and went on to score by a head from the luckless and courageous Gee Gees Cashcard that was forced to work no better than three-wide for the entire 1100-metre journey.

“This one is a nicely bred filly – she’s a half-sister to Highway Lad who we had a bit of success with,” Brunton said after the race.

This was Isometry’s (Ladoni-High And Away) first appearance since her debut effort back in May when she finished eighth of 11 in a 2YO Maiden in Hobart.

Her late full brother Highway Lad won five and was placed four times from 15 starts and was considered one of Tasmania’s most talented juveniles in his two-year-old season.
