VICTRIX LUDORUM followed up her win in the £100,000 Tattersalls Millions Fillies’ Median Auction Stakes a fortnight ago at Newmarket’s Rowley Mile with an impressive win in the Tattersalls Millions 2YO Fillies’ Trophy, worth £300,000.

The daughter of Invincible Spirit was bought by Peter and Ross Doyle at last year’s Tattersalls October Yearling Sale Book 1 for 75,000,gns on behalf of Mrs Julie Wood.

The seven furlong contest was a step up in trip for the filly, but she won nicely under Richard Hughes. Her owner, Julie Wood commented after the race, “That was a smashing result. It was a career best performance for her and she pulled out all the stops. It was very different ground to what she experienced here two weeks ago but she has done well on it. She is a straightforward filly and you don’t have to worry too much about her in a race. She has to be a 1,000 Guineas horse for next year – now we can dream about it throughout the winter!”

MISS YOU TOO for the David Simcock yard finished in third with Jeremy Noseda’s THE GOLD CHEONGSAM finished in third place.

A half sister to VICTRIX LUDORUM is catalogued as Lot 764 in the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale Book 2 from Ballylinch Stud, by Rock Of Gibraltar.
