Virginia Blazes a Trail at Catterick
Virginia Plane led her rivals a merry dance at Catterick on Tuesday afternoon when winning the five furlong nursery on the card. She showed blistering early speed coming out of the stalls and tacked over to the stands side under Jason Hart. That was the path Jason chose to navigate as the ground was extremely testing at the course. It looked a very good move with hindsight as the filly proved tough and hard to pass. She won by half a length at the line.
It was very important to get a win at two in to Virginia Plane as she is the younger sister of Liberty Beach. In time her owner Philip Wilkins may well choose to breed from her and this can only help. Many congratulations to Philip and his family.
