New winnersDe Gaulle – Madame Du Gast (3 f ex Tremolo by Special Bond) gave her sire De Gaulle (Exceed And Excel) his first individual winner in the Eynesbury Plate (1000m) at Flemington.
 Bred and owned by Richard Anderson, Madame Du Gast scored by three-quarters of a length from the heavily-backed favourite Elite Icon (Nicconi), with Silly Salmon (Fighting Sun) the same margin away third. “There is plenty of improvement to come,” said trainer Trevor Rogers.
“That was her first race. She was travelling with her head on the side and she was not sure what she had to do, while in herself, she’s still a baby at home. It was good to get the win today and we’ll let her tell us where we go.” The unraced Du Gaulle, a half-brother to Golden Slipper (Gr 1, 1200m) winner Estijaab (Snitzel) produced 16 foals in his first crop and stands at Bombara Downs.
Madame Du Gast is the first winner out of Tremolo being her second live foal. A full-sister, Tremolo’s third foal, is catalogued as Lot 701 at the Inglis Premier Yearling Sale.
