God’s Own mare, Magnolia Lane, bounced back to her best yesterday, recording her fifth career victory when successful over the mile at Gosford.
Out of the Umatilla mare, Stikumonice, and hailing from the family of brilliant sire Twig Moss, Magnolia Lane was beaten a nostril at her previous start and took her earnings over the $100k mare with yesterday’s score.
We can only assume that Magnolia Lane is named after the famous ‘drive’ at Augusta National, which is every golfer’s idea of heaven. Another reason, and perhaps a bit more cryptic, is that the groundskeepers at Augusta – if the roses threaten to bloom too early – stick’um on ice.
