Julie Wood and Richard Hannon teamed up to win yet another race in the Tattersalls Millions at Newmarket this afternoon when VICTRIX LUDORUM won the £100,000 Tatersalls Millions Fillies’ Median Auction Stakes.

The 14-1 shot, who finished well down the field in seventh on her only start at Newbury last month was bought at the 2011 Tattersalls October Yearling Sale Book 1 for 75,000 gns from Ballylinch Stud for Peter and Ross Doyle Bloodstock. She finished a length and a quarter in front of the favourite Badr Al Badoor.

Julie Wood commented, “She traveled well from the three furlong marker and I imagine will get further than six. The plan is to come back to the next races in the series in two weeks time, the £300,000 Tattersalls Millions 2YO Fillies’ Trophy, which is over the extra distance of seven furlongs. I’ve been very lucky in winning a few of these sales races and I can’t get enough of them! It’s great to compete for such a huge prize pot.”

The Richard Hannon/Julie Wood team has won two previous races in the series, Rougemont, who won the £250,000 Tattersalls Millions 3YO Trophy in April and Zebedee winner of the £100,000 Tattersalls Millions Auction Stakes two years ago.

The Tattersalls Millions 2YO Fillies’ Trophy takes place on Saturday 6 October at Newmarket Racecourse’s Rowley Mile with the richest two race of the season in the UK, the £500,000 Tatteralls Millions 2YO Trophy also on the same card.
