Rain Goddess (centre) was a surprise winner
Rain Goddess sprang a 50/1 surprise on her debut to take the Ballylinch Stud EBF Fillies Maiden at Leopardstown on Irish Champions Weekend for trainer David Wachman who recently announced that he is to retire.
Holiday Girl was sent straight to the front by Billy Lee and refused to go down without a fight when challenged by O'Brien's Key To My Heart in the home straight, but neither could repel the late challenge of the eventual winner.
The Galileo filly finished with a wet sail under Declan McDonogh and crossed the line with a length to spare from Holiday Girl.
"She's a nice filly. She's straightforward and Declan gave her a great ride" said the winning trainer.
"She'll be a nice filly for Aidan (O'Brien) next year."
