It was a race to remember for connections of IN LIGHTEN ME (Star Witness x Inlighten) who showcased the tenacity that has seen her salute on 5 occasions (15-5:1:0 $123,095).
Keagan Latham was able to settle her off a moderate tempo and when they swung off the Kensington bend she was able to match motors before giving that extra effort to put her rivals away.
It was a privilege to seal the double for the newly formed training partnership “Gerald Ryan & Sterling Alexiou”. This combination🤝has been working very effectively for Blueblood Thoroughbreds and we look forward to a long and successful association.
In Lighten Me next race will be for black type. Gerald Ryan will decide if she line up in the Listed Mona Lisa Stakes next Friday or the Tibbie Stakes at Group 3 level at Newcastle on the 16th September.
