MISS PAPENHUZEN TAKES THE FIRST HEAT OF GEORGE JOHNSON.
One of Tasmania’s feature mares races George Johnson has been won by some top-class mares over the years the likes of Jane Ellen, Make Mine Cullen, Lombo Adreamin, Queen Carey, and Innocent Eyes to name a few. This year’s edition is to be run on March 2 at Hobart’s Elwick circuit on Friday the first heat was taken out by Sweet Lou mare Miss Papenhuyzen (pictured above after winning the Leigh Plunkett) in dominant fashion for Rohan Hillier.
Miss Papenhuzen was named after Melbourne Storm (NRL) champion full back Ryan Papenhuzen, who has already claimed feature races Evius Final, 2yo Blue Bonnet, Alabar Leigh Plunkett, and the North East Cup at Scottsdale and looks a main chance to add the George Johnson to her list of Tasmanian feature races to her resume.
