Wright In Flight played the proverbial waiting game from the off before stepping forward in the last furlong with gathered momentum to win a four-year old and upwards (non-winners of two) call going nine furlongs and 25 yards ( 1,820 metres) at Caymanas Park on Saturday, September 24, 2022.

A four-year-old chestnut filly by Liquidity out of the Spacelink mare Cliffy's Choice, trained by Michael Marlowe for owners Paul C Wright and Neville Wright, Wright In Flight coasted to her second career win from 24 starts by 5 1/4 length.

The claiming apprentice Ramon Nepare rode the 5/2 Liquidity winning filly and posted a winning time of 2:00.2 seconds. Following her back to the line in second place, was the 14/1 chance Miss HJF ridden by jockey Oneil Mullings. Slamsilano, the mount of Samantha Fletcher, who challenged Wright In Flight strongly for parity from the off, was third and leaving the 40-1 shot No Surrender to complete the frame, in the hands of jockey Aaron Chatrie.

"This victory is most welcomed and satisfying. It is the Liquidity/Cliffy's Choice filly's second-best performance recorded since turning four, and the improvement came at an opportune time when a win was due. Cliffy's Choice, a granddaughter of PW's Choice, was trained by my father and owned by the Wright family. And, by returning to the winner's enclosure, for the first time, as a four-year-old filly along with the family ownership, horse and trainer connections intact, the victory success was special for us all," trainer Marlowe related.
