Richard finally got to tick the Redcar Listed two-year-old Trophy off the list after Darkanna showed her class to win under jockey Barry McHugh. Darkanna has been running consistently well in some top class races and was sent off the 4 to 1 favourite. She was always prominent and had the lead over a furlong from home. She held off the challenge from the fast finishing Flying Sparkle to win by half a length. A fantastic result for owners The Cool Silk Partnership.



Darkanna picked up the first win of her racing career on just her third start. The Dark Angel filly didn’t get the best of starts after being hampered. She was switched to the left by jockey Barry McHugh two furlongs from home. She made headway over the final furlong and ran on to lead towards the finish. She stayed on to win by three-quarters-of-a-length for the Cool Silk Partnership.
