Off the back of two very good barrier trial performances, two-year-old Snitzel filly VIENNA WALTZ made her debut a few weeks back, but not all went right during the run and she finished out of the placings.
Having her second start on Friday night at Canterbury, the filly stepped up to the 1200m of the Tab More Than Just Wining Maiden on the Heavy 9 rated track surface and all went as planned.
Urged to go forward from the middle of the line, jockey James Innes Jnr had the filly over a length clear of Hussterical during the run.
As Hussterical started to pressure Vienna Waltz and the race favourite Volpino also started to make a run, Vienna Waltz showed true fighting qualities to kick and on the point of the turn she was a few lengths clear.
Hussterical gave chase and the when pair pulled clear of the pack it was evident one of them would take the prize – but which one?
On the line, Vienna Waltz held a nose winning margin over Hussterical with Volpino a further length and a quarter back in third.
Purchased from the draft of Edinglassie Stud at the 2015 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale for $140,000, Vienna Waltz (pictured as a yearling) is out of the Group 3 Sweet Embrace Stakes-winning Marju mare Burning Sands.
