Big future for Flemensfirth Listed winner

Sandown’s Listed bumper on Saturday went the way of Queenohearts (5m Flemensfirth-Chars, by Old Vic), a Flemensfirth mare with huge potential.

Ciaran Gethings was in the saddle as the mare battled courageously to win the Listed EBF Stallions/TBA Mares’ Standard National Hunt Flat Race for trainer Stuart Edmunds.

The Racing Post commented: “QUEENOHEARTS, a 5l winner at Towcester, appreciated getting a good test at the distance and ran down the runner-up, who had looked highly likely to triumph herself. She showed a good attitude and looks a nice hurdles/chase prospect.”

Queenohearts was bred in Ireland by S Mullen.
