Panstarr Takes Listowel Feature

The feature Edmund & Josie Whelan Memorial Listowel Stakes provided one of the best finishes of the day as the Jim Bolger-trained filly Panstarr held on grimly from the front under Kevin Manning.

The daughter of Pivotal made all of the running, had a few challengers to contend with along the way, but she showed great resolution inside the last half-furlong to just hold off the attentions of Ship Of Dreams by a diminishing neck.
