STARS ALIGN FOR ASTROLOGICAL
After five placings from her previous thirteen starts, Astrological finally greeted the winning post a winner.
Lining up in a small field of six at Mildura last Saturday, the daughter of Wanted enjoyed a nice run before getting clear in the home straight for a solid win.
Christine Puls replaced Jarrod Lorensini and enjoyed an armchair ride to also notch her first win for ATB.
The win took the fillies earnings to $52,095, which is why the Vobis scheme on offer in Victoria is so important for owners.
Congratulations to her owners Brittain Racing, SN Davidson, JW Jackson, JM Grover, SC Hulm, SJ Caldicott, Mrs K Caldicott, Familee Racing, RL Emery, MD Dix, C Papadopoulos, A Marquis, Ms C Brown & LJ Hulm
