The last day of Winter saw petite filly Von Trapp (Frankel GB/Chortle GB) taste victory in the XXXX Gold Fillies & Mares Maiden Plate over 1300m at Hawkesbury today 31st August 2021.

Von Trapp, with Jockey Josh Parr aboard jumped nicely from barrier 4, slotting in third on the fence. Allowing the speed to play out upfront she remained relaxed, maintaining her easy gait throughout. As the field spread at the turn, she took her cue to come wide and stake her claim. She took the lead at the 200m mark, cementing the win in an easy fashion.

Congratulations to owners Formosa Bloodstock and their connections. May this be the first of many wins for this talented, well-bred filly.
