Laganore crushes Gowran rivals for Tony Martin and Colin Keane

Sat 16 Sep 2017

Laganore produced a stunning display to land the Group Three Denny Cordell Lavarack & Lanwades Stud Fillies Stakes at Gowran.

Colin Keane was happy to watch the race unfold from the rear of the field on the 7-2 joint -favourite and was still travelling supremely well two furlongs out as Keane picked a path past beaten rivals.

After easing alongside I'm So Fancy approaching the final furlong it was simply a case of how far Laganore wanted to win by and after being given her office by Keane, she stretched to a two-length success.

Martin said: "She's been very good. Luck just didn't go her way but she's a right good mare and for the boys who own her she's worth a right few pounds now as a broodmare so it's worked out grand.

"She's been promising to do that for an age. She loves that ground and that's what Colin said. She's in good order and you couldn't be happier with her.

"I'll have a chat to the owner now and see what he says but today was important. We were a long time waiting all year.

"I couldn't see her staying in training next year as they'll want to breed from her. I doubt it very much but I'll chat with Maurice and see what he says but I doubt it.

"To get today out of the way was the really important thing and we'll see were we go. You'd be happy with her after that and there is not too much more we can do with her now."
