Frankel Filly With The Moonlight Wins for Godolphin

I'm pretty sure With The Moonlight was a historic winner for the super sire Frankel. This daughter of Frankel was his 800th offspring winner. In addition, Juddmonte announced the 75th Stakes winner for Frankel

A mark of a true champion. 

However, any punter who bet on With The Moonlight, who raced over one mile at Chelmsford, her second start, looked anything but the winner showing signs of inexperience and even given a crack of the whip in the first couple of furlongs, before getting her act together and catching Mark Johnston's Noonie in the closing half furlong. 

Assistant trainer, Alex Merriman said: ''With The Moonlight got the job done nicely and I think the one mile trip suited her. She's learned from her first run and we're really pleased. I'm not sure where she'll go next as I've not spoken to Charlie yet. We'll have to wait and see what he wants to do.'' 

Charlie Appleby's bay filly out of Sand Vixen, who was trained by Saeed bin Suroor, a three-time-winning mare, who won the Flying Childers Group 2, and concluded her career when unplaced in the Cheveley Park Stakes (Group 1). She raced just six times in her formative season achieving an official rating of 107, and total earning of £72,256. 

With The Moonlight is likely to progress with her racing and contest pattern class this season. 

Good luck to connections.
