Winton galloping trials
An unnamed Danske filly won decisively in a maiden heat at the Winton trials today.
Trained by Ellis Winsloe, the filly posted a two-length win in 47.63sec for 800m.
''I've always liked her,'' Winsloe said.
She will have another trial before the Knapdale horseman decides on a totalisator start. The 3-year-old is out of Lilly's Choice, a sister to Wyndham Cup winner Gladiator's Choice (seven wins).
Ascot Park trainer Sabin Kirkland produced a Coats Choice 3-year-old filly to win another maiden trial.
