Starspangledbanner Filly Draws Clear To Maiden Victory

In These Shoes (2f Starspangledbanner - Majenta, by Marju) built on two narrow defeats to run out a commanding winner of Wednesday’s seven furlong maiden at Redcar.

Charlie and Mark Johnston’s charge finished a close second on debut last month and was headed close home next time out when stepping up to seven furlongs. Sent off favourite to make it third time lucky, the daughter of Starspangledbanner was ridden to make all by Jason Hart, who asked his mount to quicken from two furlongs out. Drawing clear a furlong from home, she was pushed out to score by three lengths and three quarters.

Owned by Barbara and Alick Richmond, In These Shoes was bred by Kenilworth House Stud.
