GOT THE NAME CLAIMS ULSTER OAKS

Ian Fortune

Got The Name displayed fine early speed and determination to capture the Mabel Blair Memorial & DTSC Ulster Oaks Oaks at Drumbo Park on Saturday night.

While George Hamill’s daughter of Droopys Buick and Melodys Molly made every inch, she had to dig deep in the closing yards to contain the persistent late challenge of Timmys Penny.

Got The Name displayed fine early sped to lead by three lengths to halfway and she maintained her advantage until the final turn. Swinging very wide at that point, she left the door somewhat open for Timmy Penny but Got The Name maintained a decent gallop to the line to emerge a head in front of her rival in 28.72. There was a further four and a half length gap to Quare Beach in third.
