Game Getaway Mare Gains Maiden Win
Maggie O (5m Getaway - Laurens Trix, by Presenting) produced a game performance to lead home a 1-2 for Coolmore NH sires in Saturday’s Mares’ Maiden at Taylorstown point-to-point.
Sean Doyle’s representative was ridden by Jack Hendrick, who had partnered the mare to finish a promising fifth on debut in February. Racing prominently throughout, she was asked to challenge at the second last and ran on strongly to lead on the run-in. The winning margin was half a length, with the favourite Barrons Land (Soldier Of Fortune) claiming runners-up honours.
The improving daughter of Getaway is owned by Jim O’Neill and was bred by John Hore.
