Bubbles On Ice (Starspangledbanner) winning at Killarney

Smart Filly Continues Fine Run For Starspangledbanner

Bubbles On Ice (2f Starspangledbanner - Medicean Star, by Galileo) followed up on a promising debut when getting off the mark at Killarney on Monday.

Beaten just over two lengths at the Curragh last month, the Fozzy Stack-trained filly stepped up to a mile on her second start and was ridden to chase the leader by Joey Sheridan. Taking closer order approaching the final furlong, she soon led and kept on well to win by three parts of a length from maiden winner Snapraterea.

Speaking after the race, the winning trainer said, “She’s quite a smart filly. She’s a May foal and will improve as time goes on.”

Owned and bred by Michael Begley, the daughter of Starspangledbanner becomes the fourth winner out of her dam Medicean Star.
