Winners Keep Coming For Ivawood
Second last time out at Leopardstown, the Jessica Harrington-trained filly showed the benefit of experience when breaking smartly to make all under Shane Foley. Going well entering the straight, she was pushed out to win by a length and three quarters.
Commenting after the race, the winning jockey said, “She's a nice filly and this was an ideal race for her. She has plenty of pace but I don't think she would have any trouble getting seven.”
Bred by Stephanie Hanly, For The Trees is owned by her trainer in partnership with Ms S Prichard-Jones and RB Jones. She becomes the first winner out of her dam, a winning half-sister to Group 3 scorer Karar, runner-up in the Group 1 Prix de la Foret.
