Baby Shally (Soldier Of Fortune) Wins At Ballycahane

Soldier Of Fortune Mare Delivers On Debut

Baby Shally (5m Soldier Of Fortune - La Shalak, by Shalford) made a perfect start to her career on Sunday when winning the mares’ maiden at Ballycahane in the colours of owner/breeders Gerard and Yvonne Kennedy.

The Sam Curling-trained bay was one of two newcomers to line up in a field of ten, and was ridden to chase the leaders by Brian Lawless. Leading from the third last, she was travelling best of the field at the penultimate fence and kept on well on the run-in to score by five lengths.

Baby Shally is a full-sister to point-to-point and bumper winner Victory Club (Soldier Of Fortune).
