Duke’s record gets better and better

Duke Of Marmalade notched up another black-type winner on Sunday when Wannabe Better (3f Duke Of Marmalade-Wannabe, by Shirley Heights) saw off 11 rivals to win the Listed EBF Garnet Stakes.

The Tommy Stack-trained filly, who had also won the Listed Vincent O’Brien Ruby Stakes at Killarney in August, took the mile contest by an impressive two and a half lengths.

“Winning the maiden here seemed to give her lots of confidence,” Fozzy Stack, assistant to his father told the Racing Post. “She obviously likes it around here and she did it well. I´m not sure whether she will stay in training or not next season. We´ll have to wait and see.”
