Ascot Park workouts
Four-year-old Elsu gelding Liam Sienna won a free-for-all at the Ascot Park workouts yesterday.
Liam Sienna will probably have another workout before he resumes racing, preferably in a one-win junior drivers' race.
Sun Shine Whiz was well-held in fourth and not asked for an effort in the trotters' workouts. His trainer, Brent Shirley, also started I Smart in a non winners' heat.
I Smart, who won two workouts and a trial as a 2-year-old last season, was not extended to finish close to the placegetters.
She contested one 2-year-old race for a fifth at Ascot Park in January.
