Well-bred pacer Dont Call Me Cheap will make her long-awaited debut at tonight’s harness racing program at Kilmore.

A member of the Julie Mifsud stable, Dont Call Me Cheap is by Blissfull Hall from good producer Botswana.

As such, the mare is a half-sister to Group One winner Lennytheshark and a sister to Led Suitcase and Blissfull Boy.

A former classy youngster, Led Suitcase also boasts success at Group One level.

The clan is littered with top shelf winners, including Newbold Penny, Tandias Courage, Classic Garry, Nolarama, Burling Game, Mother Courage, Provocative and Penny Veejay.

While the above mentioned were star youngsters, Dont Call Me Cheap will complete her first trip to the races as a four-year-old, with Mifsud stating expectations are being kept under wraps.

“We’re not going to get carried away with her,” Mifsud said. “She’s a nice type, but she’s got a lot to learn about racing.

“The ability and speed are there, but the maturity isn’t. On top of that, she’s off the second row and it’s the first time she’ll be under lights.

“It’s just a case of see how she handles it all.”

Although Dont Call Me Cheap is making a late start to her career, Mifsud explained the delayed debut was “just circumstances.”

“There has never been anything major wrong with her,” Mifsud declared. “It’s just been a few little setback and life away from the horses getting in the way.

“Her owners have been very patient and hopefully she can make up for some lost time as we go along.”
