The most recent win followed the romp at Wodonga, where she started $1.30 to break her maiden.

The four-year-old was an $8,000 online purchase and has won two from two since residing on the Peninsula.

Shane Nichols was at the track with a large contingent of owners who only joined ownership of the horse around a week before the race.

"She hasn't had the ideal lead-up into this run. There was an ownership change, and it was all a bit complicated. This new ownership group has only been in her a week, so they're pretty happy," Nichols said after the race.

"They've nearly got most of their money back straight away. So they're up and about.

"She came with a few issues, and it took a little bit to iron those out. She's pretty good now," Nichols said after the race/

"I'm not sure where her rating will go. She probably goes up four points, which means she may still sneak into an open-sex BM64, or we may have to go Metro BM70 Mares.

"She's up to City level in the off-season for sure, especially through the winter. I doubt she would be on a firm deck, but she'd be more than capable through the winter.

"Our foreman Hayden Black has had a lot to do with this mare on the way through. That's why I let him do the pre-race interview, but I'll take the glory with the post-race.

"We've always had a bit of opinion of her, and hopefully, she keeps going forward."

Beour Bay has now had seven starts overall for two wins and four placings. She is a progressive mare that is showing plenty of promise.
