Miss Mirabell (Footstepsinthesand) Wins At Gowran Park

Footstepsinthesand Filly Draws Clear On Second Start

Miss Mirabell (3f Footstepsinthesand - Tallulah Bell, by Gone West) built on a promising debut to run out an impressive winner of the fillies maiden at Gowran Park.

Fifth over course and distance of a mile last month, the Johnny Murtagh-trained bay was sent off favourite on Wednesday. She made all under Ben Coen and was shaken up from three furlongs out, racing clear inside the final furlong to score by five lengths.

“I loved the way she finished today,” Murtagh commented after the race. “She kept her head down and kept going to the line. Her work has been nice since and she's improved a bit at home. That was a pretty good performance.”

The progressive daughter of Footstepsinthesand runs in the colours of breeder Ms Jacqueline Norris.
