One to Watch – Ballarat
Tara Madgwick - Thursday, 13 July 2017
There are few more honest horses in training than Chris Waller’s tenacious stakes-winner Religify and his two year-old sister broke the ice with her first win at Ballarat on Thursday.

Prepared by Darren Weir, Prosecution was favourite at her first run back from a spell following a debut third at Moonee Valley back in February.

Prosecution as a yearlingShe dashed clear to win the 1000 metre maiden by a length and a quarter and if she is anything like her big brother, this will be the first win of many.

Prosecution was a bargain $35,000 Inglis Easter purchase from the Coolmore draft for Spicer Thoroughbreds, who do know how to pick a good Choisir having purchased world champion sprinter and Group I sire Starspangledbanner as a yearling.

She is the fourth winner from four foals to race from Sacred Witness, a sister-in-blood to HK Horse of the Year and world champion sprinter Silent Witness.
