MALINAS MARE WINS FOR NEW CONNECTIONS
JAUNTY SORIA (Malinas) made a winning start for new connections when taking the Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle at Fontwell on June 12th.
Carrying the colours of Miss Jane Goddard for trainer Neil Mulholland for the first time, the six-year-old was partnered by Sam Twiston-Davies for the two mile and three furlong contest. Headed at the fourth flight, she regained the lead when travelling strongly at the second last and was driven out on the run-in to score by two lengths and three quarters.
Bred by Brian Eckley, Jaunty Soria is out of a half-sister to Listed hurdle winner Jaunty Flight and Grade 2 performer Jaunty Times.
