Snitzel filly Wayupinthesky added another success to her impressive record taking out the Listed Cap D’Antibes Stakes over 1100m on Saturday at Flemington. Collecting her third consecutive career win from only four starts, the filly out of Lonhro mare The Darling One, had a smooth trip for jockey Damian Lane and proved too strong for the field of 17 fillies.

“There’s not much of her but there’s all heart and determination and she showed that today…she’s such a competitor.” Snowden said to

“She’s just got that will to win. She’s just a gem to have in the yard.”

‘She’s very lightly raced, so you would think there’s more upside to here, so hopefully it’s during the carnival.”

Bred by Greg and Barb Ingham, and offered through the Arrowfield Inglis Easter draft in 2018, Wayupinthesky was purchased by Kitchwin Hills for $400,000 as a yearling (pictured).
