Virage De Fortune Daughter Salutes At Right Time

Friday, 4th March 2016

At Wyong yesterday, one of the best bred runners in Australia shook the monkey off her back as a $1.12 favourite, despite encountering more traffic than on London's M1. Jumping as the dominant $1.12 favourite, Panegyria (Exceed And Excel-Virage de Fortune, by Anabaa) was expected to win with a hoof in the air –and she did – but not before getting caught up on the fence with few escape options. James McDonald did well to extricate the blue-blood filly who had placed for Godolphin on debut and give her clear running to the line. Her Redoute's Choice half-brother, Barbados, who overcame a serious injury at 6 months to still win at metropolitan level, has his first yearlings sell at the Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale later this month.
