Valiant Girl elevated herself this afternoon with a Grade III win in the My Charmer at Calder. Matt Rispoli gave her an Edgar Prado rail hugging ride behind a slow pace and managed to squeeze through in the final furlong. Valiant Girl has won a third of her races since being shipped Stateside, an allowance, an overnight Stake and now a Graded Stake. Congratulations to Mrs. Antoinette Oppenheimer who bred her at their Hascombe Stud near Newmarket, England.
Our other runner Strathnaver finished a fast finishing third, just missing second as she had to pull wide to make her run.
