2020 The Roses Winner Vanna Girl Too Good

Toby & Trent Edmonds’ flying filly Vanna Girl was too good for her rivals again, last weekend’s Stradbroke winning stable celebrating another feature race success this time in The Roses 2020 at Eagle Farm.

A nicely-bred daughter of Husson, Vanna Girl took her record up to seven wins at her 10th career start having only debuted in late November last year with her brilliant performance in the Group 2 $175,000 The Roses (1800m).

Going through the grades during a standout first preparation, The Roses victory was the fourth straight win for Vanna Girl – stablemate to the Stradbroke winner Tyzone – and her first in Group class after her back-to-back Listed Black-Type victories over the mile at Doomben in May.

Drawn wide in The Roses field jumping from gate 12 of 14, Vanna Girl was ridden to perfection by Brad Stewart who got her into a lovely position right after the jump switching her off towards the back of the field.

The dominant favourite in betting, she was the widest of the fillies on the home turn before charging down the outside and rounding up all in front of her down the straight.

Ranging up at the final furlong mark, she hit the lead 100m out and beat home the Kelly Schweida-trained Cellarmaid with Mark Newnham’s Celestial Falls in third rounding out The Roses trifecta.

“She won that pretty soft in the finish, there’s something about this filly she’s just got another gear that these three-year-old’s don’t have, I knew at he 600 i was on the winner,” the winning hoop Stewart said.

“First time i rode her she was a bit keen but today they ran along and she was much more comfortable, you never panic on her because you know when you ask for an effort it’ll be there.

“It’s a shame she goes to the paddock now with winning form but she’ll only come back better I can see her covering the two furlongs with ease.”

With no Queensland Oaks being run in 2020 due to COVID-19, Team Edwards are likely to turn their attention to the upcoming spring features in Sydney and Melbourne with the untapped The Roses winner.

“Just a huge effort from this filly to come here today and win the way she did, this was always her grand final and despite the success we’ve had this preparation we wanted to finish on a good note and she’s done just that,” co-trainer Trent Edmonds said.

“She’s a rare mix of talent and toughness and the scary thing is she’s not fully there yet once she really fills out the skies the limit with her.”

“She’s been incredibly durable being up since October with only three weeks off in that time full credit to the staff at home who do a great job with her.

“We’ll head to Melbourne when we bring her back, we probably don’t want to aim too high too early but she’s shown she’s a cut above up here and has earnt [sic] the chance.

“She’s a special horse the things she can do on the track and we’ve got a lot of family involved in the ownership she’s taken us on a hell of a ride so far.

“The stable success is great but that’s on the back of three, four, five years of working to get the talent in the barn we have at the moment.”

In 2001 the champion filly Ethereal won The Roses in Brisbane before continuing on to take out that season’s Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m).

The 2020 Caulfield Cup runs on Saturday October 14 and Vanna Girl is currently paying $41 in the all-in markets at Ladbrokes.com.au – available here.
