Vanna Girl resumes racing on Saturday in Listed Australian Turf Club Trophy

The well performed, Toby and Trent Edmonds trained Vanna Girl resumes racing on Saturday in Listed Australian Turf Club Trophy over 1400m at The Gold Coast.

“She looks to be coming to hand nicely,” offered co-trainer Toby Edmonds.

“She’ll take a run … maybe two … to get back to her best form. She is actually getting ready for the Coolmore Legacy. It is a Group 1 mile race on April 10, the second day of The Championships.

‘She’ll have the run on Saturday … and possibly another one … going into the Coolmore.”

Vanna Girl, a chestnut daughter of Husson, enjoyed a stellar three-year-old season in which she won seven of her ten starts and finished second on another two occasions.

Her wins there included triumphs in the Listed Daybreak Lover, the Listed Pam O’Neill and she completed her season with a crescendo when adding a Group 2 success to her list of achievements when taking out The Roses at Eagle Farm during the Queensland Winter Carnival.

After just shy of a three month layoff, Vanna Girl returned as four-year-old and was set the task of tackling a tough, Sydney campaign.

Her five starts in Sydney were all Group races against quality opposition in the Group 2 Tramway (won by Dreamforce), in the Group 1 Epsom (won by Probabeel), in the Group 3 Craven Plate (won by Think It Over), in the Group 1 Empire Rose (won by Shout The Bar) and in the Group 2 Matriarch (won by Affair To Remember).

While Vanna Girl finished unplaced in all but one of those races (she finished third in the Craven Plate), on only one occasion did she finish more than three lengths behind the winner.

“It was hard in Sydney. Because of Covid-19 we couldn’t see her and we couldn’t be there,” said Edmonds.

“She had no luck all preparation really but, still, was never beaten by a long way.

“I tend to forget about that last preparation. I think you’ll find now that she is a bit more mature.

“Obviously, we’ll only find out how she has come back when she is out there.

“We’ll see how she goes.”
