US Grade Two Winner for Footstepsinthesand
Posting her first Black Type success in the US was Irish bred mare Living the Life (4m Footstepsinthesand x Coulour and Spice, by Machiavellian), who took out the Grade II $400,400 Presque Island Downs Masters Stakes. Switched to North America earlier this year after starting her career in the UK, Living the Life is now with Gary Mandella and was sent out favourite for her first attempt at Graded company. She finished strongly to win the six and a half furlong sprint by half a length, her overall record now seven wins from 21 starts with prizemoney just shy of $480,000. Living the Life is the best of four winners from Colour and Spice and is the 39th stakes-winner for Footstepsinthesand.
