Tilia Cordata shares the spoils in a dead heat at Salisbury Steph Hollinshead Racing

Delighted to see Tilia Cordata (IRE) (Zoffany x Limetree Lady), get up to win the 19.53pm Highclere Castle “The Perfect Gin” Handicap (Class 6) for 4yo+ over 5F yesterday (10th August 2023) at Salisbury.

Owned by Mr. Neil Hayward, the filly under a fine ride from David Probert, took cover on the rail before moving out wide in the final furlong running on well to thrust up to the line in tandem with Joy Choi and share the honours.

“Im really pleased for Neil, he has been so patient since Tilia joined the yard 12 months ago to give the mare time to strengthen and build her fitness up. She’s only small but has ability, so hopefully this is the catalyst for more victories in the future,” said Steph.
