LUMINOUS GOLD OFF THE MARK
Cosy victory for a nicely bred filly
30th Apr 2008
On Good to Soft ground - perhaps closer to Good - LUMINOUS GOLD, trained by Chris Wall, became the first winner for Allan Bloodlines client Dr Philip Brown at Folkestone this afternoon.
Sitting 2nd in a handicap field of fillies on the 6 furlong straight, Alan Munro asked for an effort 2 out. The response was strong and straight resulting in a comfortable length and a half victory made all the more meritorious by the LUMINOUS GOLD tiring just a little, this being her seasonal debut, in the final 100 yards.
Purchased by Allan Bloodlines at Tattersalls Part 1 Yearling Sales in 2006, the 3 year old daughter of a black type mare is by Fantastic Light but has a lot of speed on her damside. It is hoped that this may sustain considerable progress from this satisfactory beginning.
