Serena Brotherton enjoys repeat Epsom Derby success
No stranger to Tattenham Corner and Epsom’s winner’s enclosure having enjoyed a successful partnership in the inaugural running of the Ladies Epsom Derby back in 2009, Serena Brotherton and EPSOM SALTS must have had a deja vu moment when they repeated that success this evening for trainer Pat Phelan.
Held up in the early stages of the race, Serena bided her time making steady headway from halfway and kicking on in the home straight. EPSOM SALTS responded nicely and quickened approaching the final furlong to win with ease from the one paced RUB OF THE RELIC and Harriet Dukes. Following the race, Pat Phelan said “Epsom Salts loves this place!” The same can be said for the jockey. Serena has now won this race 3 times from its 4 runnings having also won here last year with MEGALALA so many congratulations to her!
