Isla Poppy proves too good

Sep 10, 2014

Isla Poppy continued to step up through the grades on Saturday, with a solid win in Saturday's Class 3 Plate at the Gold Coast.

The 1400m event wasn't run to suit the four year old, she raced in behind the leaders and they dawdled in front. Rider Scott Galloway didn't panic and a got her out into the clear at the right time and she proved too good, storming home to win by a nose.

It was start number sixteen for the Jet Spur mare.  She has now recorded three wins and six placings and collected just under $50,000 in prizemoney.
