Vow impressive in Oaks trial

Sat, 12 May 2012

Vow advertised her Classic credentials with an impressive victory in the Betfred 'The Bonus King' Oaks Trial Stakes at Lingfield.

Sent off the 11-10 favourite after winning on her debut at Newbury last month, the William Haggas-trained daughter of Motivator was well placed throughout the Listed event, bowling along on the heels of leader Estrela.

The pair kicked clear at the entrance to the straight and though Vow showed signs of greenness as she veered right then left when hitting the front, she was straightened up by Johnny Murtagh and had no trouble holding the late thrust of Colima by three and a quarter lengths.

Bloodstock Al: @DanBriden Interesting read- as you say successful mares are the exception to the rule; shame about Kazzia as her record is as good as any.
