THOROUGHBRED DAILY NEWS - Camelot's Even So Wins the Irish Oaks

Published 2020/07/18


It was Ger Lyons again celebrating on a Classic Saturday at The Curragh as Even So (Ire) (Camelot {GB}) carried Susan Magnier’s pink silks to glory in the G1 Juddmonte Irish Oaks. Settled behind the leading quartet early by Colin Keane, the 10-1 shot who is part-owned by Mrs Paul Shanahan and had won the Listed Naas Oaks Trial over a mile and a quarter last time July 4 stayed on past Cayenne Pepper (Ire) (Australia {GB}) to gain the advantage a furlong from home. Asserting from there, the bay beat that 2-1 favourite by two lengths, with Passion (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) doing best of the Ballydoyle four a half length away in third.
