Lightly raced filly Shesawish chalked up another feature race win when she led all the way in the Group 3 VHRC The Holmfield at Tabcorp Park Melton last Saturday night.

Anthony Butt ensured the Neville Pangrazio trained Shesawish was up on the bit early, in order to hold the lead from the coveted pole position.

“Nev just left it to me really, we knew we had the good draw and we wanted to make the most of it,” Butt said.

“He said if we really get hammered then he wouldn’t mind if I let another horse go but she’s a good filly who has always raced well in front, so we thought that we would take a chance and if she’s good enough then she’s good enough,” he said.

The daughter of Wishing Stone has now won four of her eight starts including the $50,000 Platinum Home Grown Classic (3YO Trotting Fillies) Final.

“It’s great for Nev and Louise who put a lot into the game and to get a horse like this is really exciting for them,” he said.
