12 Apr Race Result for AMOURICE
AMOURICE probably ran her best race for us at Lingfield yesterday finishing 2nd to the highly rated LUBINKA, who was a close up 6th in her last start in the Grade 1 Fillies Mile at Newmarket.
Our Jockey Josephine Gordon rode her very well. They broke from the outside and came across to take up a prominent position. AMOURICE handled the bends and the drop on the track and just over a mile out, she took up the running. One furlong out she was still in front but LUBINKA, who had been cruising, was shaken up and passed AMOURICE within the last furlong to win by 2¼ lengths. AMOURICE finished 3½ lengths clear of the third horse.
Unfortunately, AMOURICE had met an exceptionally smart horse. However, she showed that she had progressed from her last race and that she could even run over a longer distance.
