Ballydoyle Honey was once again the Queen of Shelbourne as she tooks the honours in the Gain Feeds Christmas Oaks.
Trapping better than usual she got a clean run round the opening turn and came out the second bend in 3rd spot, some four lengths off the lead. Showing great back straight pace she was closing on the leader fast into the third bend. Flying off the final turn and riding a small bump, she went away to score by a length and a half and once again breaking the magical 28 seconds barrier, recording 27.94 !
This is her 3rd Major Oaks prize having won the Puppy Oaks and the Sporting Press Irish Oaks earlier this year. A truly special bitch for her owners Alison Coxon and Brian Golder, and for us to train.
