Lipp was delighted with Simply Fly’s performance and will press ahead with summer carnival plans which include the Group 3 George Moore Stakes at Eagle Farm in December.
“I was very happy with his run considering he over-raced in the early stages,” Lipp said.
“I’m not saying he should have won but he would have finished a lot closer had he settled better.”
Lipp also was pleased with Tycoon Evie’s effort to finish fourth, just over three lengths behind Le Palmier.
“She couldn’t go with them in the early stages but she hit the line strongly,” he said.
“Like Simply Fly, she needed the run and had a big blow after the race.
“She’s going well and will head to the fillies and mares' races in the summer.”
Lipp has considered giving training away several times in recent years before scaling back on his stable numbers after being one of Toowoomba’s biggest trainers with over 60 horses in work at the height of his career.
