In just one year as a trainer, 28-year-old Carolyn Costigan has learned almost a lifetime of horse racing knowledge.
education came to fruition yesterday at Woodbine when Costigan sent out
her father Robert’s filly Roan Inish to win the $500,000 Woodbine Oaks,
the most important race for Canadian-foaled 3-year-old fillies.
as long as the filly exits her narrow, gritty win over Moment of
Majesty, owned by former NHL goalie Curtis Joseph, in good shape it
will be on to the July 4 Queen’s Plate against the boys.
