Raced in the Grade 3 WSB Magnolia Handicap over 1160m at Turffontein. Sean Tarry post-race comment: She is a filly that I think we may have asked too much of, too soon. She finished 6.5 lengths behind the winner, giving weight to the rest of the field. Finished 13th.

Raced over 1000m at Turffontein. Sean Tarry post-race comment: I think her coat can improve a bit. Craig Zackey felt that she just needed the run, there was nothing untoward. I ran her a little bit earlier because there aren’t a lot of races for her and she would have needed this run under her belt for her to run on Summer Cup day. Finished 12th.
