It was a winning double for our Epona Park and Gallivant Racing owned runners at Sapphire Coast on Friday when Joan Constance and Lincoln Cash Man both claimed victory.
Joan was dominant, winning by over 3 lengths and never looking challenged with Jess Taylor aboard. Joan went to stud last year but returned to training after failing to go in foal. She has been stronger and healthier since her long break and from her trackwork, we were confident she would run well.
Lincoln Cash Man took a big step towards returning to his old form when he fought off the second place horse to win his race. He showed real determination to kick again when challenged for the lead and was driven to the line by Pat Scorse.
Lincoln’s first three starts for our stable last year yielded a win and two seconds so we hope with the confidence boost of this victory, he can string a few good runs together.
