Enfranchise win at Gowran Park

Enfranchise made a good finish on her seasonal reappearance at Gowran Park, winning the Listed-class Irish Stallion Farms EBF Vintage Tipple Stakes.

Shark Hanlon's versatile mare finished the year with a 50-1 second in Galway's Oyster Stakes after winning on the Flat and over hurdles.

Over a mile and six furlongs, Gavin Ryan put the six-year-old slightly off the pace, allowing him to gain ground on the leading Vischio.

Joupe and Countess Of Tyrone raced ahead early in the home straight, but Enfranchise proved to be the strongest of them, winning by two lengths at 16-1.

Hanlon said: “She is a filly that we always thought a lot of. She won the Oaks last year in Down Royal and she loves that ground, she galloped them into the ground. I thought she’d run well but didn’t know if she was fit enough. She was doing everything right at home. I think she’s better over two miles and I’d definitely go up in trip, rather than down in trip. There is a hurdle race in Galway that we have picked out for her and there are plenty of Group races on the Flat. She loves soft ground and I think the Group One (Prix du) Cadran in France would suit her.”
