Illavabubbles breaks 1:50

Illavabubbles continued her brilliant run of form with another win at Menangle, this time in sub 1:50.

Driven for the first time by Chloe Formosa, the daughter of Always B Miki led from barrier 10 and didn’t look back.

After quarters of 26.2, 29.2 and 27.8, Illavabubbles ripped home in 26.6 to win by almost four lengths in 1:49.8.

The star mare has won 6 of her past 7 starts and now has earnings of over $140,000.

Her main target is the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth II Mile for which she sits on the second line of betting, behind Aardies Express (Always B Miki) and Ladies In Red.

Illavabubbles was bred by Breckon Farms and is out of the Bettor’s Delight mare Delightful Dale.
