Salsada (Mukhadram) wins her second race in succession taking the ‘Betfair EBF Reprocolor Fillies Handicap’ at Haydock, for Elwick Stud and Jedd O’Keefe.
Making her handicap bow here under Graham Lee having broken her maiden impressively at Newcastle earlier in the year, Salsada was always handy and travelled strongly throughout. She seemed to relish the conditions and the step up in distance to 1m2f and when asked to go and win her race in the home straight, she stayed on very strongly and got the better of some very well backed and well bred rivals to win in good style.
This was a very likeable win and there will doubtless be higher targets in mind for this progressive filly as we enter the Autumn. Salsada was purchased for 75,000gns at the 2019 Tattersalls Guineas Breeze Up Sale.
