Showing great gait speed, the daughter of Courage Under Fire led before handing up to race favourite Keayang Ebonyrose.
Then once the field hit the home straight the final time, Whirily School sprinted brilliantly again to get home by a short half head over Keayang Ebonyrose in a new lifetime best of 1:55.
Bred by Shannon and Meaghan Nixon, Whirily School has now had 35 starts for 15 wins, 8 placings and earnings of $162,568.
She is out of the Life Sign mare Mayhappen, who is a half sister to 10 winners including the broodmare gem Intrude.
