LISDOONVARNA KEEPS HER COOL

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - RACING - MATT JONES POITRELL HALL OF FAME HCP

AU­TUMN is prov­ing kind to Lisdoonvarna who yes­ter­day was too good for a field of three-year-olds at Rose­hill.

The Amanda Turner-Mauro Po­letti-trained filly held off a fast-fin­ish­ing Se­away to win by half a length. The horse who loves the cooler months is ap­pro­pri­ately named af­ter an Ir­ish town in County Clare where the av­er­age tem­per­a­ture never rises above 20C.

“Through the sum­mer her blood has never been right be­cause she can’t cope with the heat but at the mo­ment it’s just per­fect,” Turner said.

Lisdoonvarna was scratched at the bar­ri­ers at War­wick Farm two Wed­nes­days ago when she hit her head.

But in an­other sign of her grow­ing ma­tu­rity, she bounced back yes­ter­day and the stable will look for a Group race in Bris­bane over 1400m.

“She’s so much bet­ter on a wet track so I hope it starts pour­ing in Bris­bane,’’ Turner said.
