Glamour harness racing mare Frith is set to rack up plenty of frequent flyer points by the end of the year.

Fresh from her success in last night’s Young Cup, trainer Bruce Harpley revealed his extensive travel plans for the five-year-old.

Beginning with a trip south of the Murray River for the Queen Of The Pacific in May, Harpley is also looking to take Frith north for the Queensland Winter Carnival and across the Nullarbor for the Perth Inter Dominion.

“The Queen Of The Pacific at Melton is the first main aim with her,” Harpley said. “Bernie (Kelly, owner) is also talking about the Queensland winter races.

“I want to have her in Western Australia for the Inter Dominion in November as I reckon the conditions and the track will suit her.

“That said, I will have to space her runs and keep her fresh in between.”

With Harpley in the cart during her latest triumph, Frith worked to the lead from her second row draw before completing a two-and-a-half metre win from Heza Thrill, with Blazin N Cullen two metres away third.

“That was a pretty nice run from her,” Harpley said. “She’d pulled up well from her run in the Ladyship Mile a couple of weeks ago and I expected her to put in a big run.

“She rolled along really well and I’m happy with the way she hit the line.”

Covering the last half in 57 seconds, the daughter of Four Starzzz Shark rated 1:59.4 for the 2480 metres, taking her record to 31 wins and eight placings from 42 starts for earnings of $853,572.

Amazingly, Frith’s three unplaced efforts were gallant fourths.
