VIDEO: Listed win at Listowel for Fozzy Stack and Chris Hayes
on 22 September 2020
A review of the highlights from Tuesday's all-flat card at the Co Kerry track

Lady Wannabe made the most of having her sights lowered with victory in the Edmund & Josie Whelan Memorial Listowel Stakes on Tuesday.

Fozzy Stack’s filly had raced exclusively in pattern company so far this year, most recently finishing down the field when a 150/1 shot for the Group 1 Matron Stakes on Irish Champions Weekend at Leopardstown.

Returning to listed level for the first time since winning at Killarney in August of last year, the daughter of Camelot was a 14/1 shot under Chris Hayes – and proved her class with a near two-length verdict over Aidan O’Brien’s Keats.

Hayes said: “She had a good run the last day in superior company. We followed them around – they went good and hard, and the ground was as quick as she wanted – but the drop back in trip suited, and the rain came, which worked out a treat.

“That is probably her ideal trip (nine furlongs). She probably didn’t get home over a mile and a quarter, and they were going a gear too quick for her over a mile. She was able to get into a rhythm today and hopefully she can do something again later on.”

Jim Bolger and Kevin Manning combined for a double on the card, with 100/30 chance Sheer Bravado landing division two of the Feale Handicap and Agitare justifying 2/5 favouritism in the Jet & Peggy O’Carroll Memorial (C & G) Maiden.

The latter was not winning out of turn, having previously been placed at listed and group-race level this season.

Una Manning, daughter of the winning trainer and wife of the winning rider, said: “He was due his win – it took him a little while, but it was a good performance. The boss (Bolger) is delighted with him. He will get further and will go to the horses in training sale later on.”
