After an eye-catching debut at Flemington last Saturday, promising filly Gimmie Par is headed back to her birthplace in regional Victoria to spell ahead of what trainer Peter Moody expects to be a Group 1 campaign in the spring.
The half-sister to Ole Kirk, from the same family as Black Caviar, ran second beaten half a length in the Listed Talindert Stakes by Godolphin's Blue Diamond aspirant Ingratiating.
"She ran up to her good recent trial, she just lacks a little bit of maturity and she's got a bright future ahead of her," Moody said on his podcast Moody On The Mic.
"Very pleasing to see her hit the line like that but disappointing not to win obviously."

Gimmie Par was due on Thursday to arrive back at Gilgai Farm near Nagambie, the residence of her owner and breeder Rick Jamieson who, unlike with Black Caviar and Ole Kirk, decided to retain the horse and race her himself.
"She's headed back home where she's owned and bred and she'll grow out there and I look forward to getting her back in the spring," Moody said.
Much like her half-brother last year, the filly is likely to tackle a key G1 for three-year-olds in the spring.
"She's the daughter of Not A Single Doubt and a half-sister to a Caulfield Guineas winner so we've probably got to aim her at something like the Thousand Guineas," Moody said.
"First and foremost, she's now Stakes-placed and she'll come back and kick off in a little maiden somewhere and then we'll work toward a race like the Thousand Guineas and God give her strength and hope she's good enough."
