Successful Days Ahead for Nick Olive Mare

Nick Olive’s 6-year-old daughter of Domesday has taken a while to find her feet but with two impressive wins from her past three starts, it seems Successful Day has plenty of successful days ahead of her.

Starting $3.10 favourite in her first up run this preparation, Successful Day finished a length and a half back in 5th placing. It didn’t take her long to gain the punters forgiveness, blitzing a Benchmark 60 a fortnight later when starting favourite again.

Canberra Racing Review — 27 November 2020


The Rail was out 7m and the track presented a Good 4. In most races the jockeys were looking to find forward positions. Only one favourite delivered won on the day but most winners were well in the market. The biggest upset was Upper House’s win in the Open Federal. He drifted form $9—$16 and finished over the top of them. Blaike McDougall, Jess Taylor and Alysha Collett all rode two winners.
