John Thompson’s Pane In The Glass won the 2011 Silver Shadow Stakes at Warwick Farm on Saturday August 20, 2011.
The win was the first at Group level for the classy three-year-old, who placed in three Group races last season.
Jockey Craig Williams was aboard Pane In The Glass when she won the Silver Shadow Stakes 2011 ahead of second place-getter Florentina and third place-getter Streama.
“If you have a look at her form she is already second in a Group 1 behind a very smart horse of Snowden’s,” Williams said.
“She is a great racehorse with the blinkers on today but still has a lot of growing up mentally to do as well.
“She lost her legs at about the 600m and I tried to help her as much as I could without letting them get too far away and when I got out and asked her, she looked like she was going to take off and win comfortable but she probably ran out of petrol near the end.”
The win topped off a fruitful day for trainer John Thompson, who had already experienced horse racing success with Kneeling in the Crockett Stakes.
“We (had) two really nice fillies come out of today and she has been our flag bearer,” Thompson said.
“She is a lovely filly and seems to have come back better and looks good for this prep.
“She went for a spell probably the best two-year-old filly of the season and wasn’t a stakes winner but she has that under the belt now and will hopefully go on to bigger and better things.”
Pane In The Glass is now expected to contest the 1,400 metre Group 2 Furious Stakes at Randwick Racecourse on September 3, 2011.
