Dorothy Gail books her spot in the $2 million Inglis Millennium !
Fri, Jan 27, 2023
A stunning victory from 2yr old Capitalist filly Dorothy Gail today at Scone over 900m for Annabel Neasham and Alysha Collett has seen her rocket into Millennium calculations where she will almost certainly take her place in the field in 2 weeks time.
A decision was made by Annabel to bypass the group 3 Widden Stakes at Rosehill on 28th January, and instead opt for the "safer" option in contesting today's 2 year old maiden at Scone, a race she had to win to have enough price money overall to be in the Millennium.
She overhauled favourite Tarabeau in the straight and was just too good today, drawing away from the pack and really running through the line.
"That was such an impressive win. She did a few things wrong in that race, and even then she was still able to pin the ears back and hit the line" said Tricolours Director James Moss. "She is a really nice filly, and we have some lovely target races for her in Autumn after the Millennium. She's one to follow!"
Dorothy Gail will now head to the Inglis Millennium on the 12th of February, with star jockey Tom Marquand booked for the ride.
