Having broken her maiden impressive almost three weeks prior, four-year-old mare Vanilla Princess headed to Randwick to contest the fifth race of the day, the McGrath Estate Agents over 1200m.
Ridden once again by Winoa Costin, the Gai Waterhouse-trained mare settled behind the leader in the run and like her last start, she was too powerful on the line, taking the race narrowly by a long neck margin to Pretty In Paris with a long neck back to Rahy Storm in third.
Bred and raced by Evergreen Stud, Vanilla Princess is the first foal of the Group One Kelt Capital Stakes (twice), Group One New Zealand Oaks and the Group One Stoney Bridge Stakes-winning Encosta de Lago mare Princess Coup. By Darley’s Champion sire Lonhro, Vanilla Princess has now produced two nice consecutive victories for her connections.
Her second foal, a colt by Redoute’s Choice named Thewizardofoz is currently an unraced three-year-old by produced the goods the day prior to Vanilla Princess’s win, scoring by five lengths in a 1200m Randwick Barrier trial.
