Classy filly becomes fourth winner for Skilled

Trampers never headed in impressive maiden victory

Skilled recorded his fourth winner from just seven starters when his two-year-old daughter Trampers won in dominant fashion over 1200m at the Gold Coast, 2 July.

The smart filly showed plenty of gate speed from the inside alley to take control of the race from the outset and although never seriously challenged, she showed great promise to lead all the way and claim her maiden victory.

Bred by Vine Street, Trampers is out of the Dolphin Street mare Star Tour and hails from the family of G1 Blue Diamond winner Road to Success.

A winner of the G1 Champagne Stakes as a juvenile, Skilled will stand the coming breeding season at Northwood Park in Victoria at a fee of $6,600 inc. GST, while his Champion three-quarter brother Sidestep stands at Kelvinside in New South Wales for $11,000 inc. GST.
