MANUELA DE VEGA shines in G3 Pinnacle Stakes

MANUELA DE VEGA, runner-up in the G1 Großer Preis von Bayern at Munich last year, made a massive front running effort in the GBP 37,000 Pinnacle Stakes at Haydock to record the first group win of her career. The LOPE DE VEGA filly, who has been a model of consistency collecting money in every of her five outings at group level, led the way in the 2300m G3 race and dug in deep in the closing stages to defend her first group success by two lengths. Rob Hornby was aboard the four-year-old for owners Waverly Racing and trainer Ralph Beckett.
