Simon Zahra isn’t getting carried away regarding the future of exciting two-year-old Smart Coupe.
Following a hugely impressive debut victory over 1100m at Wangaratta on June 22, the Smart Missile filly made light work of her opposition in the opening event at Sandown on Wednesday - a 1200m Handicap for 2YO Fillies.
Smart Coupe, who was supported from $1.95 into $1.70, took up the running and went on to score by 1-1/4 lengths under in-form hoop Linda Meech.
Zahra, who co-trains Smart Coupe (with Mathew Ellerton), said Smart Coupe will go out for a break, before returning for a late spring and summer campaign.
"We're just happy to get a couple of wins on the board and let her mature up," Zahra told Racing.com.
"It was a bit of a test today, just getting out to 1200 metres, but she relaxed quite nicely.
"She had a good look around but I like the way she finished the race off.
"She was solid enough at the end but she is probably just coming to the end of her preparation now."
Smart Coupe was purchased for just $22,000 at last year's Magic Millions Tasmanian Yea...
