Radio Gaga Lands Eternal Stakes

Ed McMahon’s smart filly Radio Gaga has landed the biggest race of her career at Warwick this afternoon, taking the Eternal Stakes, a fillies’ listed contest, in good style.

Richard Mullen had the three-year-old in a good position throughout the event and asked her to take the lead inside the final furlong. She ran on well to score by half-a-length. The winner won her maiden at Haydock last September, showing plenty of promise, something she confirmed when finishing an excellent third in the Bosra Sham Stakes at Newmarket eight weeks later. She ran a creditable second in the Fred Darling Stakes at the beginning of this season, but was well down the field in the 1000 Guineas last time. This return to winning ways will do her the world of good, and she should be kept on the right side of.

She saw off Switcher of Tom Dascombe’s, who ran on very quickly indeed towards the finish, securing second and performing encouragingly. Roger Sez, who struck-up a hat-trick last season, was some way back in third, but this was her best run of the campaign and she should come on for it.

Short priced favourite Diala was disappointing, whilst the Queen’s Free Verse was even further down the field.
