A first win for Jewel In My Crown

There is nothing more satisfying for an owner than to have a homebred winner, so big congratulations to Eamonn Duggan for his Jewel In My  Crown's win at Brighton yesterday.

Jewel In My Crown is a three year old filly by the Eclipse winning Mukhadram. She is out of Eamonn's mare Rosa Grace who Rae also trained to win the Listed Ballymacoll Stakes. We also have her older half sister Rosa Gold, the winner of three races last year. This was Jewel In My Crown's second start of the season, having finished a creditable fourth on her re-appearance at Leicester last month.

She broke smartly from the stalls and held a good position throughout. She was shaken up two furlongs out and finished strongly, drawing away to win by three and a half lengths. Thank you to Callum Shepherd for the ride and well done to Anna who looks after her at home.
