“In her last win she beat Mishani Delight who ran second to Rob Heathcote’s Startantes and she's gone on to win three straight.
“There were no excuses last time at the Gold Coast when she got beaten by a better one on the day.”
Ilikeit Iloveit – a Montanna Savva mount - was passed in for $20,000 as a yearling at the 2020 QTIS March sales at the Gold Coast and is raced on lease by Kemp’s wife Judith and Ulandra Bloodstock.
In comparison, Keefy was a $105,000 purchase at the Sydney Inglis sales in 2020 while her stablemate Sea Ripple was knocked down for $325,000 at the 2020 Magic Millions sales at the Gold Coast.
“They don’t know what they cost at the sales and we won’t be sitting at home wondering,” Kemp said.
Sea Ripple, a daughter of Sebring, was ultra-impressive winning her debut over 1300 metres at the Sunshine Coast last month while Keefy was a close fifth in a 1350-metre Class 3 at his last start at Doomben in August.
