Sidarian Pearl was the Queen of Shelbourne as she tooks the honours in the Gain Feeds Christmas Oaks on Saturday evening.

Trapping well she paced up well and took up the lead entering into the opening turn. Pulling away our the second bend she was pushed hard into the third turn by Ballymac Belle. Railing well round the final turns she pulled clear again, coming home three lengths in front, stopping the clock in a fast 28.25

This caps a very successful year for Pearl who was crowned Puppy Oaks Champion in April, before going on to reach the Sporting Press Irish Oaks Final in the summer where she finished 3rd, as well as reaching the Boylesports Irish Derby Final in September. A truly top class competition bitch!
