Girl Tuesday Stays Unbeaten
Mark Smith - Friday September 14

Made a Breednet 'One To Watch' when making a winning debut in a 1400 metre maiden at Newcastle on August 25, John Singleton's strapping homebred Girl Tuesday stepped up to 1600 metres at her second appearance on the same track on Newcastle Cup Day and she again proved a class above.

Made to work three deep without cover, Tuesday Girl looked vulnerable in the straight but when Kerrin McEvoy asked for the supreme effort he got an immediate response.

The Chris Waller-trained mare is unlikely to be rushed up to stakes company with a more modest target such as a mid-week in the city the most immediate target.

Girl Tuesday is her fifth foal of Singleton's star mare Tuesday Joy (Carnegie) who won four at the highest level, the Coolmore Classic, The BMW, Queen Elizabeth Stakes and the Chipping Norton Stakes on the way to banking $3,240,450 with a record of seven wins and nine times placed in her 24 starts.

Tuesday Joy is a half-sister to Group 1 AJC Australian Oaks heroine Sunday Joy (Sunday Silence) who is the dam of another to carry the Singleton silks with distinction, the 8-time Group 1 winner More Joyous More Than Ready).

A daughter of the Group 1 Queensland Oaks winner Joie Denise (Danehill) and a granddaughter of the famed Denise's Joy, Tuesday Joy has a 3yo Snitzel filly named Tuesday Special who is yet to race.

After missing to Snitzel in 2015 and Savabeel in 2016, Tuesday Joy was covered by Savabeel again last spring.
