Divorces Claims Maiden Win in 2010 Thousand Guineas Prelude

September 20th, 2010

On Saturday the Peter Snowden-trained Divorces shrugged off her maiden status with a smart victory in the $175,000 Group 3 Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m) at Caulfield, storming into contention for the $1 million Thousand Guineas later in the spring.

Divorces, an improving Domesday filly, is now equal favourite with Tea Rose Stakes winner More Strawberries in the 2010 Thousand Guineas markets open at Sportsbet.
