Bow Mistress Trophy history

This race is one of the best in Tasmania and one of only four group 3 races in the Apple Isle, the others being the Hobart Cup, Launceston Cup and the Vamos Stakes.

The fields have steadily improved over the years for the Bow Mistress as the prize money grew, especially since the race was given group 3 status in 2012. It is regarded as the best race for fillies and mares in the state.

Generally the winner and place getters in the race will go on to the Vamos Stakes. Several horses have won the Bow Mistress-Vamos Stakes double including Lady Lynette in 2011, Nuclear Free in 2005 and Flewella in 2002.

Trainers from the mainland have had great success in recent years, with only one of the past five winners being trained in Tasmania. It seems best to follow trainers who are sending runners interstate for the Bow Mistress Trophy.

Recent Bow Mistress Trophy runnings

  • Despite the small field of six, the Lloyd Kennewell-trained Ethical Solution was desperate for a run in the home straight, but when it appeared she sprinted clear with the Bow Mistress Trophy. Having donned the famous silks of her sire Shamus Award, the mare made the trip across Bass Strait worth it for the Victorian-based trainer. Having gone stride for stride with fellow Victorian Street Icon, Ethical Solution managed to sustain her sprint and kicked clear inside the final 100m and won going away from her rivals. She managed to put two lengths on Street Icon, with a further four lengths back to Runaway Girl in third place which signified the brutality of the win.
  • It is not very often that the Lindsey Park stables send their horses across the Bass Strait, but in 2020 they did so with success when Zargos claimed the Bow Mistress Trophy. Having been sent around as a $14 chance, the mare managed to outsprint market elects Deroche and Twitchy Frank under a well-timed steer from Blaike McDougall. Having weaved a passage through the field in the home straight, the Hayes & Dabernig-trained mare packed plenty late to hold off the fast finish Deroche by a length.
  • After jumping away sharply from the outside it was only a matter of how far for Life On The Wire. The star galloper raced just outside the speed early on before streaking away at the top of the straight to record a strong win ahead of the fast finishing Speedonova and Twitchy Frank.
  • Gogo Grace was one of the favoured runners heading into the 2018 Bow Mistress and mare didn’t let the backers down. Settling in the middle of the field for the majority of the race, Dean Yendall unleashed the mare not long after the 400m and Gogo Grace steamed away, recording a 4.5 length victory.
  • Ocean Embers was heavily-backed in the lead-up to the 2017 Bow Mistress and it proved to be the right move from punters. Jockey Jason Bendow settled the quality runner at the tail of the field before he pulled it wide and launched with a big run to down race-favourite and Darren Weir-trained runner Lyuba near the line. The win saw a return to form for Ocean Embers which showed great promise in Victoria last year. We talked to winning trainer Shea Eden before the race.
  • Trainer Nikki Burke saluted with Nautical in the latest Bow Mistress, despite going off her food in the day’s prior to the race, since arriving in Hobart from Melbourne. Brad Rawiller steered Nautical with a perfectly timed run, beating home the previous year’s winner I Love It by a nose, with Erin’s Element $11, finishing strongly to claim third.
