2018 Winner: Sugar Bella

The Wenona Girl Handicap is a handicap event for mares only that tends to assemble a field of more than handy types, rather than the elite. Most of the time the winner will simply be an above average galloper who will be competitive in similar type races for females.

Emerging mares who have beaten the handicapper can often come to the fore in these types of races, while any classier females engaged are certainly capable of getting the job done under a big impost.

A race such as the Gr3 Birthday Card Stakes on Golden Slipper day at Rosehill may be next on the agenda for mares contesting this event and classy Les Bridge trained mare Avoid Lightning (5th in 2014) won the Birthday Card Stakes after fifth here. Peter & Paul Snowden trained mare Artistry (4th in 2016) took out the Gr3 Newcastle Newmarket Handicap after running fourth in this race.

Sugar Bella (2018) took out a BM78 race over 1400m at Randwick before finishing strongly to win this event and recent Wenona Girl Handicap winners include Rocket Commander (2017) and Savoureux (2016).
