Starspangledbanner Filly Delights On Debut
Fizzical (3f Starspangledbanner - Medicean Star, by Galileo) completed a quickfire double for the Fozzy Stack stable on Saturday when making a winning debut in the mile maiden at Limerick.
Positioned in midfield by Mark Enright, Michael Begley’s homebred made headway from the two furlong pole and was ridden approaching the final furlong. Keeping on well inside the final furlong, she led close home to score by a head.
“She had been showing us plenty at home,” Enright revealed after the race. “I think she is a nice filly going forward and it was a good performance.”
Stack and Begley raced Fizzical’s full-sister Bubbles On Ice (Starspangledbanner) to win as a two-year-old and finish fourth in the Group 1 Moyglare Stud Stakes. Sold to continue her career in the US, the daughter of Starspangledbanner won a Stakes race for new connections.
