The four-year-old has now won five of her 12 race starts and has earned more than $860,000 in prize money during her horse racing career.

The Commands mare now has two Group 1 wins to her name, having claimed the Group 1 Myer Classic last spring.

Appearance was paying odds of $11 to win the 2013 Coolmore Classic at bookmaker.com.au.

Trainer Guy Walter was over the moon with Appearance’s 2013 Coolmore Classic win, however, admitted he was slightly surprised by the result.

“I didn’t think she could win that day, and here we are again… she’s only had 12 starts and won two Group Ones,” Walter said.

“She’s an outstanding mare.”

Jockey Blake Shinn was aboard Appearance for her latest Group 1 victory in the 2013 Coolmore Classic.

“The past 12 months have been a bit of a learning curve for me,” said Shinn.

“You’ve got to be prepared to cop the knocks and then work twice as hard to get back.

“It’s just fantastic to win my first Group One for Guy Walter, someone who’s supported me so much. It means a lot.”
