FOSTER'SISLAND.

FOSTER'SISLAND. 12 April 2015. Trans Island-Mrs Eff. Owner-The Oakwood Nobels.


On what he has shown us so far Foster'sisland looks well up to winning races, in his four appearances to date he has improved with every race, and most importantly of all, has shown a willing attitude on each occasion.He is by the Group 1 placed Trans Island, and is the first progeny of Mrs Eff, a three time hurdles winner in 2013.

Foster'sisland made his debut at the North Yorkshire point to point track of Heslaker, as a four year old, representing the yard of Chris Dawson.He finished third of the five runners, beaten under two lengths, gaining valuable experience.

He was transferred to Oakwood Stables for his rules career, which to date has consisted of three bumper runs, where he has been partnered by our stable conditional Emma Smith-Chaston on each occasion.

He made his rules debut at Haydock on December 30th, 2019, finishing third, after racing prominently throughout, he was outpaced from two furlongs out, and only weakened from the furlong marker. The winner of the race Ask a Honey Bee, had won his previous race, and would win again, before finishing down the field in the Cheltenham Festival bumper. On the face of it, finishing sixth at Wetherby in February on his next start, looked a shade disappointing, but he received a higher Racing Post Rating than he had at Haydock previously.Once again the winner of the race was Ask A Honey Bee, who was 3lb worse off, but Foster'sisland had narrowed the winning margin from 20 lengths at Haydock to 14 lengths at Wetherby.

He has raced on one more occasion since, finishing second at Catterick to the Jamie Snowden trained Anythingforlove, with a previous winner 13 lengths back in third.
