What an amazing day Saturday was for Darby Racing, the owners, the trainer David Vandyke and jockey Dean Yendall winning the GROUP 1 Spring Champion Stakes for 3YOs over 2000m.
Yankee Rose showed that electric turn of foot over the final 400m, running a staggering 10.78 seconds between the 400m and the 200m mark and running the final 200m in 11.14 seconds. Simply flying at the end of the 2000m journey. Yankee Rose is just one exceptional filly!
Darby Racing would like to thank all the owners and all the staff that work hard to get the best out of our wonderful filly in particular trainer David Vandyke and strapper Shenead Coghill.
Its a huge congratulations and thank you to rider Dean Yendall, who not only rode her to perfection but also won his very first Group 1 race.
Thank you to all our owners, followers and the general public that have been so supportive of Yankee Rose since she begun her racing career. These results give every owner the hope and inspiration that owning shares in racehorses, no matter the amount spent, can produce results at the very top.
A day we will never forget - Thank you to Bradley Photos for capturing the day
