Sky Racing-W.A. Guineas

$500,000 G2 3YO SW (1,600m)

The Sky Racing-W.A. Guineas is Western Australia’s most valuable feature exclusively for three-year-olds and its winner frequently proceeds to the Drummond Golf-Kingston Town Classic to take on the older horses.

A week after she narrowly claimed victory in the W.A. Champion Fillies, the Steve Wolfe trained Watch Me Dance had a task ahead of her when a flying Em Tee Aye took a two-length lead as they rounded the turn. Jockey Shaun McGruddy guided her into a clear run, asking her to prove she really was WA’s best three-year-old. The next ten seconds removed any doubt as Watch Me Dance glided past the leader to win by a neck, becoming only the second horse to claim the W.A. Champion Fillies-WA Guineas double in more than 60 years.
