Another classic for Village Jolt filly

Smart VILLAGE JOLT two-year-old filly IMPRINCESSGEMMA added the SA Ladyship Stakes to her resume when she outstayed her rivals in the time-honoured classic at Globe Derby Park on Saturday night (August 19).

The winner of the Group 2 Vicbred Platinum earlier in the season, the filly was trapped four deep from her wide draw before working forward to lead the outside division. Given more rein at the 500 metre mark, IMPRINCESSGEMMA levelled up with the leader on the home turn and powdered to the front inside the final furlong. She scored by 4.4 metres from HILLTOPSOMEWHERE (by SOMEBEACHSOMEHERE), who enjoyed the box seat trail.

Bred by M. G. and J. P. Davis, IMPRINCESSGEMMA is out of an unraced In The Pocket mare. She is owned by Leroy and S. L. O’Brien.
