The daughter of American sire KC And All won her Qualifying Trial last Tuesday by a whopping sixteen lengths and recorded the handy winning time of 22.90. This evening she was sent out at the prohibitive odds of $1.10 with TABtouch and after beginning like a gazelle made every post a winner in an amazing 22.59. The Wayne Beamish trained Hello Darcey finished a distant second, some eleven lengths astern of the winner. Optical is out of former handy race bitch Wired For Speed who won nine of her twenty career starts including a 490m victory at Mandurah in a flying 27.51.
