7th September 2020, Josephine Gordon
Congratulations to connections of Poetic Lilly as she achieves her first win in a game fashion under a fantastic ride from Josephine Gordon at Lingfield Park!
From a wide draw Poetic Lilly did not have an easy task but she definitely had the right lady on board! The pair broke well from the stalls, found their way into a prominent position and the filly travelled sweetly throughout. When asked for an effort 2f from home it was great to see Poetic Lilly battle gamely with Luna Wish, waring him down in the closing stages to win cosily with her ears pricked.
Josephine Gordon said “it all went to plan today. She broke well, travelled strongly, was game in the finish and enjoyed every second. We just about got away with the ground and I hope she can take a step forward again.”
Trainer David Menuisier was thrilled with the performance and added “She had to go the hard way thanks to her wide draw but ran for her life and I enjoyed the win so much! In my heart she is one of my top horses!”
Congratulations to connections once again and a massive thank you to the David Menuisier team, especially to Lea who rides Poetic Lilly at home and often takes her racing. A huge thank you to Josephine Gordon too for a brilliant ride!
This will no doubt have done the filly’s confidence wonders and we are looking forward to her next start already!
