Ujjayyi (Danielle Johnson) recording an impressive debut win at Te Aroha today.

Impressive Te Aroha debutante Ujjayyi may have earned herself an early introduction to black-type competition.

The Iffraaj filly easily put away her rivals at Te Aroha today and trainer Tony Pike is open to testing the two-year-old at Group Two level later this month.

“As long as she pulls up well then we will certainly be considering the Matamata Breeders’ Stakes for her,” he said.

“We’ve got a high opinion of the filly and she trialled up exceptionally well for second behind Summer Passage, who they think a fair bit of, without being pushed along.”
