Burrumbeet trainer Michael Stanley and reinsman Ryan Duffy will line up Sky Petite in the group 1 Inter Dominion Trotting Championship at Melton on Saturday night.
Sky Petite comfortably made the 12-strong field despite some nervous moments in Saturday’s third round of heats at Cranbourne.
Duffy settled Sky Petite near the tail of the field from a wide second row draw, but she galloped on the home turn for the last turn as she prepared for a last effort.
It meant she only beat home one rival, but as it turned out even finishing last would have seen Sky Petite through.
Sky Petite’s third in the second round of heats in Ballarat on Tuesday was the key to her qualifying for the $150,000 final.
