Keep Busy follows in her mother's footsteps to land Listed success at Ayr

Keep Busy wins the Land O'Burns Fillies' Stakes a week after Royal Ascot
1 of 1

Keep Busy capped off a whirlwind week to continue family tradition and win the Listed Land O’Burns Fillies’ Stakes. 

It was a quick turnaround for the John Quinn-trained filly, who was a highly creditable 50-1 fifth in the King’s Stand at Royal Ascot only a week ago. 

The four-year-old finished just a head behind Battaash that day, and was odds-on favourite to land Tuesday's 5f feature. 

Keep Busy's three parts of a length victory emulated her dam, Look Busy, who won the race in 2008. 

Winning jockey Jason Hart said: "She's a tough cookie. As a two-year-old she only got better the more racing she got. The boss found a good opportunity to get her head back in front today."

Jason Hart rode a double on Tuesday including the Listed Land O'Burns Fillies' Stakes

Hart quickly went on to land a double with the Tristan Davidson-trained Greengage in the 1m5f handicap.

Drama from start to finish as Jardine lands 25-1 winner

The 6f maiden was filled with drama, as the top two in the betting were withdrawn at the start. 

The Kevin Ryan-trained Monsieur Jumbo had been backed into 7-4 favouritism, however he was withdrawn on veterinary advice after being kicked in the stalls.

Meanwhile 5-2 shot Beltane refused to enter the stalls and was also taken out of the race. 

The withdrawals left the Iain Jardine-trained debutant St Andrew’s Castle to narrowly edge out the David O’Meara-trained Stromboli in a photo-finish.

St Andrew's Castle was friendless in the market beforehand, but scored by a nose under jockey Andrew Mullen.
