Wolverhampton winner, Social Media.
Social Media stepped up in trip to two miles for the first time at Wolverhampton on Saturday night when contesting the three year old and upwards 0-60 handicap at 8:45. Our filly had shaped as if the extra distance would suit when staying on over 1m6f at Redcar on her previous start. Luke Morris settled her in behind the leaders during the early stages of the race and then delivered her with a challenge as the field rounded the final bend. The daughter of New Approach stuck to the task gamely and got her head in front right on the line to break her Maiden tag.
This was an important victory as she is a well bred filly who is a half-sister to the exciting Horseplay and the Listed placed More Mischief. Her dam Mischief Making won a Listed race for us back in 2008 and her Grand Dam Fraulein won the E P Taylor for us in 2002. It was fantastic to see her battle up the straight and show such a willing attitude and she is a filly with plenty of scope. Congratulations to her owners Cliveden Stud, we hope your filly can produce plenty of winners in the future. We have now had 49 winners during 2016 and it would be great to reach the half-century soon.
