MAGNOLIA SPRINGS LISTED SUCCESS
28 May 2018
The feature race at Goodwood on
Thursday was the Listed Height Of Fashion Stakes which was won by the Eve
Johnson Houghton-trained MAGNOLIA SPRINGS (IRE). The Anthony and Sonia
Rogers-owned filly raced as the back marker at the beginning of the race and
having travelled well into the final fraction she pressed to the front on the
outside and saw the trip out well to score by two and three-quarter lengths.
The daughter of Shamardal was
bred and sold by Arlie Stud at the Goffs Orby Sale where she was picked up by
BBA Ireland for €105,000. Her first dam, Rainbow City (IRE) is an own sister to
Group 2 Freer Stakes victor Multicoloured (IRE) and a half-sister to Grand Prix
de Saint-Cloud hero Gamut (IRE). Irish Derby runner-up Galileo Rock (IRE) and Group
1 E P Taylor Stakes hero Tannery (IRE) are from the extended family.
