Zestful takes the Triscay Stakes G3

Arrowfield graduate Zestful lived up to her name and then some when she overcame a difficult run in a dramatic race to win her first stakes race, the $150,000 ATC Triscay S. 1200m G3, at Randwick on Monday.

A fall by the Godolphin filly Pearls marred the early stages of the race and ended the chances of Shillelagh. Pearls suffered a suspected seasmoid injury and was taken to Randwick Equine Centre for treatment, while her jockey James Doyle thankfully escaped serious injury.

“I thought a cracking second or third was as good as it was going to get,” he said. “We were behind a wall of them.

“I dragged her back to the inside, I wasn’t balanced so she couldn’t have been balanced but as soon as she saw clear running she really dug in.

“As I said I didn’t think I’d get them but then the last 50 metres I thought we’re a chance.

“That was impressive.”
