At Hawkesbury today, 19th November 2020, we saw the 3-year-old bay filly Escape Artist (Exceed and Excel/Se Sauver) take out Race 1, the Furphy Maiden Plate over 1100m. Ridden by jockey Rachel King she jumped well from the inside barrier, pushing up to take the lead. Hugging the fence throughout, she was challenged briefly by Impulsive Tycoon (Written Tycoon/Bessano) the equal favourite, but maintained the lead, keeping a wall of horses at bay to win comfortably in the end.
It was very satisfying to secure the win and repay some of the faith and support shown by the connections.
