In November and December 2016, GIRLFROMDANDALUP had 4 race starts for a win a second and two thirds. Since then she has had some developmental issues that can impact the bigger growing horses. Patience has been shown by all and Sunday 22nd July 2018, she has had her second trial for a nice win. Awful gusty conditions today but GIRLFROMDANDALUP showed really good gate speed and led the trial putting a distance on them down the back straight. She did get a bit tired at the end but Shannon Suvaljko for trainer Ross Olivieri was still looking after her. After more than 18 months away it was a really good effort and a racehorse has hopefully returned.
