Smart Newcomer Becomes Latest Winner By Starspangledbanner
The well-related Open Market (2f Starspangledbanner - Market Hill, by Danehill) made a smart start for connections in Wednesday’s five furlong maiden at Cork.
Trained by Paddy Twomey for owner/breeder Newtown Anner Stud Farm, she travelled strongly throughout under Billy Lee and gained a narrow advantage at halfway. Pushed along, she kept on well inside the final furlong to win by three parts of a length.
“We worked her once or twice and she showed us plenty,” Twomey said after the race. “She has natural ability and we haven't done that much with her.”
