Milan Mare Gains Second Hurdle Success
Friday saw Whitehotchillifili (6m Milan - Mhuire Na Gale, by Norwich) gain her second win over hurdles when justifying favoritism in the Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle at Exeter.
Ridden by regular partner Sean Bowen, she tracked the leader for much of the extended two mile contest and improved to lead after the second last. Keeping on well, she was pushed out to win by three and a quarter lengths.
Trained by Harry Fry for the Chasing Gold Racing Club, Whitehotchillifili also won a bumper last season. The daughter of Milan was bred by Ms Margaret Treacy and is closely related to Welsh Grand National Trial winner Wild West Wind (Westerner).
