San Fran Lady’s sale to clients of the Keinbah, New South Wales, stables of Shane Tritton was confirmed on Thursday August 26.
The in-form Live Or Die mare was very honest for Burnham trainer Mark Jones, winning three and recording five minor placings in 16 starts for $19,784 in stakes for breeders, Max and Frances Bowden.

She was a good beginner from both stand starts or mobile and should continue with the good work across the Tasman.

“Shane had bought two off me previously and both have done a super job,” Mark said.

San Fran Lady’s good manners led to her defeating Datmymulligan by half a head at Addington on July 30 at her second to last NZ start.

“Its a bit of a shame to see her go, but she should do a good job over there too,” Mark said.

“The only times she has finished out of the money was when she had bad luck in the running or was knocked over,” he said.

She was unlucky at her last start at Rangiora after setting back from a wide front row draw, then having little chance when no-one moved ahead of her before the final 400m.

San Fran Lady made good ground late wide out for seventh as Belle Vista rated 2:02.7 for the mobile 2600m in front, giving the back runners no chance as the winner quickened over her last 800m in 57s and final 400m in 28.4s.
