Raven Girl, bred by Drakenstein Stud, won the Zimbabwe Oaks (L) at Borrowdale Park as expected, so we got something right.
The Philanthropist (USA) filly, trained by Bridget Stidolph and ridden by Collen Storey, is owned by Ryan Sherwood, Neil Evans, Scott Buchan and Bridget Stidolph. This was Raven Girl’s third victory in succession and included two legs of the Triple Tiara. Congratulations to all the winning connections.
Sweet Tea, the winner’s stable companion, set the pace in the 2000m race, tracked by Fillies Classic winner Wild Imogen, while Raven’s Girl remained in touch with the front runners. The Bold Silvano filly, In the Mood, showed up well coming up the straight but it was all over when the favourite made her move. The result was Raven’s Girl, followed by Wild Imogen, In The Mood and Magical Charm.
