Winter Bride flourishes in Melbourne’s Spring

Two years after Not A Single Doubt’s splendid daughter Secret Agenda won the MRC How Now S. 1200m G3, he has done it again, this time with his 58th lifetime stakeswinner.

Winter Bride won three of her four starts in Queensland during her namesake season and placed in the Daybreak Lover P. LR.

Sent south by trainer Toby Edmonds, the now 4YO mare has measured up in strong distaff company at her first campaign start, defeating the favourite Ellicazoom by a half-length, with Platinum Angel (by Snitzel) third. 

Watch Winter Bride win the MRC How Now S. G3.

Winter Bride has now won seven of her 15 starts and $320,000 prizemoney.

Stable foreman Trent Edmonds said, “She had a good record and was carrying big weights at home and doing it easily, so we had to give her a crack down here.

“We were confident until the barrier came out but she’s so tough and versatile, it was a fantastic win.” 

A home-bred for Kevin Maloney’s Segenhoe Thoroughbreds, Winter Bride is the third foal and best winner out of the very good racemare Amberino (by Perugino), whose 10 wins included the ATC Emancipation S. G2.

Earlier in the day at the Sunshine Coast Winter Bride’s stablemate From Within, also by Not A Single Doubt, scored her third consecutive win, by four lengths.

That’s not the end of the stable’s success with Not A Single Doubt’s daughters. Toby Edmonds prepares Segenhoe’s 3YO filly Granny Red Shoes, who won a pair of Queensland juvenile Listed Races in June, but hasn’t so far had the same good fortune in Melbourne.
