On only her fourth trip out Lisathedaddy ran a great race at Lingfield on Tuesday May 23rd to win the Edenbridge Handicap Stakes. Ridden by jockey George Baker she settled comfortably in midfield and came round the outside with a great run beating jockey Frankie Dettori on Scutch Mill into second place. Needless to say there were scenes of great celebration as owner Tricia Wilson collected her first trophy and the champagne flowed shortly afterwards. Trainer Brendan Powell was equally as pleased as this was the first time out in such experienced company. It is hoped she may get another run next week.
Lisathedaddy came home third in her maiden race at Kempton, against good company from top stables she hit the front two furlongs out only to be beaten into third place by a length and a neck. For the first time the horse was in the prize money and will now be able to get her handicap. After giving away weight to the horses in front of her this should be to her advantage.
Lisathedaddy ran well in her second race at Lingfield, coming with a strong finish to end up less than a length behind champion jockey Jamie Spencer on Herring, she was beaten into fourth place by Eddie Ahern top jockey at Lingfield riding Grenwich Village. Jockey Hayley Turner rode a great race and Lisathedaddy was giving away over a stone to each horse that beat her – after her third race she will be handicapped and this should work to her advantage. The Racing Post wrote “got off to a better start than on her debut and was another to keep on well in the final furlong. She is improving well with experience and looks capable of winning at this level too.”

Tricias four year old racehorse Lisathedaddy ran on strongly to finish fourth in her first outing at Lingfield. She was a little slow out of the stalls and lost several lengths at the start, about two furlongs out she responded to a flick of the whip to come from eleventh to fourth with a great run. Hayley Turner formerly champion apprentice and the Racing Posts Lady Jockey of the Year was wearing Tricias new racing colours which are navy background with yellow stars (and white sleeves) similar to the Lisa’s Legacy logo. The Racing Post wrote a great review of her performance and she is expected to do well in future.
Lisa’s mum Tricia was surprised to be given a two year old filly for her birthday by Clive. The horse, duly named ‘Lisathedaddy’ is currently in training for her first race in the new year. Recently schooled by David, who has been very pleased with her will to stay ahead of the field, she will soon be moving to Twyford where trainer Brendan Powell is hopeful that she will be a winner. Clive hopes that Lisathedaddy will raise publicity for the charity and give the family some nice days out at the races.
