Lisheen’s Laurel Win

Shamrock Farm’s homebred LISHEEN is a summer kind of girl. She broke her maiden exactly one year ago tomorrow at Saratoga, and today she picked up her second career win closer to home at Laurel Park.

With Jorge Ruiz in the saddle, Lisheen broke alertly and sat just behind the leaders. Turning for home, Ruiz’s swung her out 4-wide, giving her clear sailing to make her bid. It was a strong one, and she passed the leaders at the 1/8 pole and galloped under the wire ears up.

Ruiz was endearingly proud of the 4-year-old Maryland-bred daughter of Into Mischief, petting her as she crossed the wire and all the way back to the winner’s circle!!

Congratulations to Tim Rooney of Shamrock Farm AND to Jorge Ruiz and Lisheen!
