Interesting Little Race

Jackie Sparrow, a three-year-old daughter of Jackson, has won two of her three starts and she steps out again on Saturday in a 1450m MR 70 Handicap for fillies and mares.

Although Debra Swanson’s charge won the 1600m Guineas Trial at the last Borrowdale meeting, beating stable companion Down To Business, the race where she ran second was probably the most impressive. This was a 1500m MR 60 Handicap on 15 December where she was 5 lengths off Raining Again with all of Days Gone By, Mustatheef, Deposition, Chetan, At The Office, Pacific Duke and Testify behind her.

This time Jacky Sparrow has to deal with Ian’s Ferrari, her stable mate Justadoreher, and Powder Puff.
