£1k purchase lands Listed race for Jonathan Portman

 In Lambourn News

The Jonathan Portman-trained two-year-old year filly Mild Illusion gunned down a strong looking field in the Listed Bosra Sham Stakes over 6f.

Fancied and hugely expensive fillies from Ballydoyle, Godolphin, Jessica Harrington and the top Newmarket yards were put well in their place by the Lambourn trainer’s 10-1 chance £1k yearling purchase under jockey Josephine Gordon for the Old Stoic Racing Club.

It was her eighth start of the season and she has been in the frame all those starts bar one.
