Lily Blue, owned by Robyn MacLeod and the Gin ‘Ill Fix It Syndicate (Nominee Kirsty Stidolph), won the Breeders Fillies Mile (L) at Borrowdale Park on Sunday. Wes Marwing was in the irons.
By Black Minnaloushe (USA) out of a Kitalpha (USA) mare, Lily Blue has now won three and was bred by Geoff Armitage. She is trained by Bridget Stidolph.
Wijdaan, a first-timer at Borrowdale, reared up at the start and dislodged jockey Hennie Greyling, thereafter bolted, and was caught, examined by the Course Veterinarian and passed fit to race. She still managed to come second.
Prescott and Gimmethegreenlight finished third and fourth.
Congratulations everyone. Ash Dixon did the presentation.
