Roses Win Boosts Inglis Easter Round 2

Monday, 15th June 2020

Whilst confirming Inglis Classic graduate Vanna Girl (Husson) as one of the nation’s leading 3YO fillies, Saturday’s slashing Gr2 The Roses win assures her Star Turn half-sister at next month’s Easter Round 2 will be highly sought after by the buying bench. She is being offered by Vinery Stud as Lot 11. Vinery’s bloodstock manager Adam White described Vanna Girl (see below) as “a nice filly who was always going to need time’’, noting, “She always had that quality about her, very correct, a lovely head, a real presence but she just took some time to really strengthen up which we expected [and] seeing the benefit now of the patience her trainers and connections have shown her. She’s the real deal.” White is enthusiastic ahead of the sale: “The half-sister coming to Easter in July, she’s probably a bit more forward, got more strength at this age and being by Star Turn you’d expect her to get up and go a bit earlier given Star Turn won a race in November of his 2YO season.”
