Last year, Eesha My Flower won the Erik O Steens Memorial. On Thursday, she repeated the business. The field was smaller this time, but there was nothing to say at the competition.
– She needed the race on the opening day, she did the same last year. That the course had dried up a lot was probably no minus either. Eesha My Flower has an American owner, who wanted a mare with staying abilities. I thought it was all a hoax, but soon realized it was not. The owner has Norwegian ancestry and is eager as just that, coach Cathrine Erichsen could tell. Thus, the beautiful mare is undefeated in three starts over 2400 meters at Øvrevoll. Elione Chaves rode a fine race on the winner.
