Spirit of Milan was expertly piloted by in form jockey Jimmy Orman for her debut win at Doomben. Despite still being a little green and having a good look around the filly showed loads of potential as she crossed the line with her ears pricked. There was a large contingent of owners and stable supporters on track to cheer the filly home. The beautifully bred filly was purchased at the Magic Millions from the draft of Daandine Stud for $100K.
