Missile Coda might be starting a new career as a broodmare soon but showed she retains her zest and enthusiasm for racing at Rosehill Gardens yesterday

Co-trainer Peter and Paul Snowden put blinkers on Missile Coda and the mare regained her best form to lead throughout to easily win the Colin Hayes Hall of Fame Handicap (1200m).

“I take my hat off to the Snowdens, they changed the mare’s gear and the work they have done with her in the barriers was good for her confidence,” jockey Andrew Adkins said.

Show was good in the barriers (today) and the intention was to lead with blinkers on.

“She travelled extremely well, gave me a nice feel, we got some easy sectionals and she skipped away for a dominant win.”

Paul Snowden said Missile Coda ($16) could be given her chance at stakes level during the Brisbane Winter Carnival after she raced away by nearly two lengths from Dissolute ($8.50) with Star Reflection ($13) a length away third.
