Wings Of Eagles Mare Gains Deserved Maiden Win
The Gordon Elliott-trained bay placed on her first three starts in bumpers and was well-supported to get off the mark on her second start over hurdles when the saddle slipped. Stepping up to two and a half miles at Tramore, she was settled in midfield by Jack Kennedy and improved to chase the leader by halfway. She led approaching the second last and kept on well to deny Rachel’s Secret (Yeats) by half a length on the line.
