The Richard Hannon-trained Ardbraccan stayed on gamely to win The Rossdales British EBF Maiden Fillies Stakes at Newmarket’s July Festival last Saturday under jockey Sean Levey. She had finished second on her previous outing over the same course and distance and looks to be an exciting prospect for the Hannon team and her owners. Ardbraccan’s victory made it two wins in two days for the trainer and jockey, who won the Group 1 Tattersalls Falmouth Stakes a day earlier with Snow Lantern.
The presentation to winning connections was made by Rossdales’ Managing Clinical Director, Mike Shepherd. Before the race, Mike’s wife Camilla, daughter Kitty and her friend Cecily awarded the Best Turned Out prize to the groom of the Andrew Balding-trained Wilderness Girl, who finished fourth of the 9 runners.
It was great to see the public back at the July Course enjoying an excellent day’s racing and our thanks go to the team at Newmarket Racecourses.
