3/12/2020 Vancouver filly impresses at Sandown

Vandoula Lass (Vancouver) made a promising start to her racing career when taking out the Clanbrooke Racing Handicap (1000m) at Sandown yesterday for Hawkes Racing. The two-year-old filly defeated Godolphin’s Translation (Frosted) by two and three quarter lengths, prompting praise from Wayne Hawkes and rider Craig Williams. “We did think she’d come here and win,” Hawkes told Racing.com. “She’s an absolute dream (to work with), she walked into the mounting enclosure and walked around as if she owned the joint and looked like a five-year-old gelding. It’s always good when a two-year-old has got ability but they’ve also got the attitude.” Williams, who rode Vandoula Lass when she won an 800-metre Flemington jump out on November 20, added: “I was so impressed by her physique but more importantly her mannerisms in the jump out. They had two options with races and they found the weakest race to give her the great experience. She’s a real high-class filly with a great attitude. For a two-year-old filly at the end of this year leading into next year she’s a really exciting filly that I think they’ll have no problem getting out to 1200 metres or further later (in her career).”
