Bramshill Lass won the Lingfieldpark.co.uk Maiden Stakes at Lingfield this afternoon for her owner Karen Hancock, husband Ron and sister in law Val. Ridden by Jim Crowley she was drawn wide in stall 7 but obtained a good position during the race in third and stayed on well in the straight to beat Cotton Trader a neck with Three Bards a further half a length back in third. 
Karen and Ron Hancock purchased her from Henrietta the Marchioness of Tavistock at the December sales in 2010.  She had finished a promising 3rd on her first start this year on 14th January and had learn't from her experience on that occassion to win her maiden in pleasing fashion. Well done to Krissy who looks after her and Allan who drove her to the races.
I am delighted to have our first winner of 2012 and are very much looking forward to racing our team of 70 horses this season.
Earlier today Barry and Fiona Reilly came to Coombelands to see Mr and Mrs Perry's horses and to deliver a super colt by Dylan Thomas out of five time winning Whirly Bird who was trained at Coombelands.  A good day all round!

Paul Cole Blog Update: Possible Hurdle Runner

Everybody is back from their holidays and the horses have gone back into full work. They have generally put on the required amount of weight and they are all doing steady canters. It appears more than ever that racing doesn't kick into gear until mid April but the weather has been good this year for trainers to make an early start. We are taking our time and will probably have no serious runners until April. We have bought more precocious individuals this year and they are shaping up well. 

Gifted Girl and Swingland are two fillies knocking on the door to be Listed class, they are both looking and going well.

Strategic Mount is schooling over hurdles at Nicky Hendersons and could run at Huntington over the Cheltenham period subject to working well. He seems to have taken to jumping.

We have three Strategic Prince two year olds this year, the first ones we have trained. He has had a recent Stakes winner in the US, Tones, who was trained by Richard Hannon as a two year old, won a $81,000 stakes race at Santa Anita on Sunday 26th of February.\

Stan Moore's 2yos 2012

Stan Moore
Stan Moore

Ever since Stan Moore started training racehorses in 1990, out of a converted dairy in Andover, he has enjoyed more than his fair share of success on the racecourse. The fact that he was taught by two of the greats, Paddy Prendergast and Vincent O’Brien, might have something to do with this, although his knack of buying horses whose performances have far outweighed their price tags suggest that he has plenty of natural talent as well.

Stan first moved to the Lambourn Valley in 1995 and every year since has increased the number of horses under his care. Barathea Dreams’ wins in the 2004 Esher Cup and 2005 Spring Mile showed that Stan’s early high-profile successes with the likes of Patsy Grimes, Oh So Rosie and Mydante were no fluke. He has since trained winners in Dubai at the International Racing Carnival, being leading European trainer there in 2007. Also in 2007 Stan won the richest 2 year old race, The totescoop6 Two-Year-Old Trophy at Redcar with Dubai Dynamo and he repeated that success with Total Gallery in 2008.

Following two years at the historic yard at Uplands, Stan purchased and moved to Berkeley House Stables in July 2008 and has quickly up-graded and improved the facilities on offer at the yard. We currently have 47 stables and have plans in place to expand the capacity of the yard in the near future.

2009 has seen Stan's greatest achievement to date, training his first Group 1 winner at Longchamp with Total Gallery's success in the Prix de L'Abbaye. This win followed a near miss the previous week with Lady Darshaan (Total Gallery's half sister) getting narrowly beaten in the Meon Valley Fillies Mile at Ascot.

Stan is one of life’s characters. His Irish charm and warm sense of humour make him great fun to be with both on and off the course. He has the ability to make racehorse ownership a very enjoyable experience - win, lose or draw.

Froch admits to 'deliberately prolonging fight'

Froch conceded he could have finished his 2005 Commonwealth title defence against Ruben Groenewald earlier than he did, but decided to keep the fight going for the purposes of bets placed by his family.
The Nottingham boxer admitted he could have finished the fight in the fourth round, but deliberately avoided doing so due to a number of bets made on it ending in the fifth.

HCE Motivation: Do you have everything you want in life?

If you’re like most people the answer is a resounding NO. Sure, you’ve worked hard and achieved some of your goals…but ask yourself, is there more? Could you do better?
Most successful people have a common trait. They are notorious goal setters. They realize that a dream without a goal is only commentary. And hope is not a business plan.

HCE Writes Guest Post For Outsider

First Foals For Vale Of York

Vale Of York didn’t hang about when it came to proving himself to be a high-class juvenile and his first foals aren’t wasting any time either with five already on the ground.

First to arrive was a filly for the Listed Ascot winner Alha Wasahl, who was herself a very smart two-year-old, having finished third in the G2 Cherry Hinton Stakes at Newmarket. This was the first foal for the daughter of Dubai Destination, who is booked to visit New Approach this season.

The first colt to be born was out of Ciara Doyle’s Xaar mare Queen Of Fools, the dam of last season’s four-time juvenile winner Powerful Wind and a half-sister to Hunan, who won the G3 Prix de Cabourg for Aidan O’Brien.

Peter and Jackie Grimes own the smartly-bred Paris Glory, a half-sister to Elusive Quality’s G1-winning two-year-old Elusive City, who produced a filly by Vale Of York on January 29.

Sans Reserve, already a black-type producer for Helen Smith, is another with a foal at foot by the young stallion, having foaled a filly on January 24.

Distorted Humor’s young mare Jumeirah Palm, a close relation to last seasons Racing Post Trophy runner-up Zip Top, has the most recent foal, a colt born on February 8.

It’s no surprise that Vale Of York was well supported during his first season at stud: as a crack two-year-old from a sireline with a brilliant track record in the first-season sires’ title, he offered breeders an excellent chance, both in the sales ring and on the racecourse, and for a very reasonable stud fee.

Successful on his debut in a seven-furlong York maiden, the son of Invincible Spirit became a Listed winner on only his third start before finishing placed in both the G2 Royal Lodge Stakes and the G1 Gran Criterium. But of course his best performance came with the Californian sunshine on his back when defeating no fewer than five G1 winners including the subsequent Preakness Stakes and Haskell Invitational winner Lookin At Lucky in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile. You can click here to be reminded of Vale Of York's finishing speed and exceptional determination when winning the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile.

Now about to embark on his second season at Kildangan Stud, Vale Of York has been given every chance to shine in his stallion career too. Come the foal sales, pinhookers will doubtless be scrutinising his progeny, and with 114 mares in his first book, he has an excellent chance of making his mark when his first runners reach the track in 2014.

Darley’s 2,000 Guineas winner Refuse To Bend dies at Haras du Logis

Refuse To Bend, who was standing at Haras du Logis in France for the first time this season, died of a heart attack on Friday, February 10.
Bred by Moyglare Stud Farm and a half-brother to Melbourne Cup winner Media Puzzle, the beautifully-bred son of Sadler's Wells was trained as a juvenile by Dermot Weld to win the G1 National Stakes, before taking the 2,000 Guineas on only his fourth start.

After contesting Europe and North America’s top races he was purchased privately by Sheikh Mohammed and transferred to Saeed Bin Suroor for his four-year-old campaign, and landed a brace of G1’s in the space of a month including the Queen Anne Stakes and the Eclipse Stakes for Godolphin.

He was retired to Kildangan Stud in 2005 and with only four crops of racing age so far, he has sired one of the finest fillies of our time, Champion three-year-old filly Sarafina, who won the G1 Prix de Diane, Prix Saint-Alary and Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud. In total he has sired 15 Stakes winners and 23 Stakes horses from his stud careers in Europe and Australia.

Darley’s director of stallions, Sam Bullard, said, “Refuse To Bend’s death will be a significant loss for breeders, Haras du Logis and to Darley. He was a superb racehorse and he had it all ahead of him as a stallion. Refuse To Bend’s progeny had a wonderful 2010 and 2011 and as a result he was proving very popular in France this year.”

Ann Duffield: 2yo Talk....

Rangooned, the lovely grey Bahamain Bounty two year old  filly decided to get rid of George in the parade ring ten minutes before her proud owners were due to arrive and, bucking, kicking and whipping round like a spinning top, she almost managed to unship him. Luckily, as the saddle slipped round he popped off the side, landed on his feet before quickly fixing the saddle, jumping back on and, after two sharp ones she behaved impeccably. By the time the owners arrived the mele was over and she was as sweet as a nut again. How George does it at sixty five is beyond me.

Promising two year old colt "Rust" was so full of himself he didn't know what to do first, buck, kick, rear, whip round or take off so he tried to do them all at once. G Duffield had to be at his best to stay in the plate.

An Interesting Bio: Dr Jim Hay (Mrs Fitri Hay's Other Half)

Mrs Fitri Hay
  • Born: 1950 in Scotland
  • Residence: Dubai
  • Family: Wife Fitri
  • Education: B.Sc. and Ph.D. in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at Stratchclyde University

  • Professional Background: Worked for British Petroleum for 27 years before acquiring Fosroc, a company specializing in the provision of specialist chemicals to the construction industry. Based in Dubai, it has an annual turnover of more than $350 million and employs 1,700 people

  • Racing Background: Gained an interest in racing when watching the sport on television with his grandmother

  • Racing Career: Enjoyed his biggest success in racing on Oct. 2, 2010 when 2011 Dirt Mile prospect Redding Colliery, who began his career in Britain, but is now trained by Kiaran McLaughlin, won the Hawthorne Gold Cup (G2) ... Those achievements were eclipsed by Cape Blanco (Ire), who carried Mrs. Hay's silks to a trio of Grade 1 American successes in the summer of 2011. Having comfortably defeated Gio Ponti in both the Man o'War Stakes and the Arlington Million, he just lasted home in the Joe Hirsch Turf Classic but insodoing suffered a career-ending knee injury ... Hay bought a share in both Cape Blanco and his stablemate at Aidan O'Brien's yard, Fame And Glory, during the winter of 2010-11. Fame And Glory went on to win the Ascot Gold Cup at Royal Ascot in June on a very special day for Mr. and Mrs. Hay as they began the afternoon riding in a horse-drawn carriage from Windsor Castle as part of the royal procession ... Other top horses he has owned are Traffic Guard, who had a career bankroll of $600,000 and was runner-up to New Approach (Ire) in the 2008 Irish Champion Stakes, and Distant Memories (Ire), who won the 2010 Winter Hill Stakes (G3) 

  • Breeding/Racing Operation: First had horses with Kevin McAuliffe, then moved to Stan Moore, who provided his first winner when Barathea Dreams won at Lingfield in February 2004 ... Moved the majority of his string to join Jane Chapple-Hyam in 2007 but they split a year later. Hay has been restructuring his stable in 2010-2011, culling those of lesser standard and moving the better ones around. He now has about 40 horses in training, largely split between trainers Paul Cole, Stan Moore, and Tom Tate in Britain, and Aidan O'Brien in Ireland. Cole's horses went from around 20 down to only nine in 2011. Precision Break, who finished seventh in the 2010 Breeders' Cup Marathon, became his first horse with David Simcock. Pink Symphony was moved from Cole's yard to Irish handler David Wachman and won the Give Thanks Stakes (G3) at Cork in July 2011 on her first start for her new trainer. In spring of 2011, Hay moved six horses to Roger Varian, who took over the Kremlin House Stables at Newmarket from Michael Jarvis in March 2011. The idea was to have some horses at Newmarket, and to point them toward racing in Dubai. During the European winter, Hay's Dubai horses are trained by Herman Brown ... Jamie Spencer signed a contract in early 2010 to act as his retained jockey, and rode Cape Blanco for the Hays in America ... Alex Cole, son of Paul, acts as his racing manager.

Nothing much happening on the racing front. I have to go into town and buy a Valentine's Day card which will get to the intended ? sometime this year, but not tomorrow. Sounds mysterious, hey. I'm sure if Columbo was on the case he could work out who ravished Mrs Plum, in  the bedroom, after buying a card and box of chocolates. I always struggled with Cluedo and Columbo. I know one uses a board and dice while the other wears a mack. 

Humour. That's what we need. I receive lots of spam. Generally, it is filtered out so most goes by without consideration, thrown into the imaginary bin. However, in its own way, some of the comments are quite funny. Here is a selection just to make all those who spamheads realise that sometimes it pays dividends.

''You know i dont usual comment, but i genuinely like your blog and i thought i would introduce myself. I have been reading it for awhile but this is my 1st comment.''

''Hello, i read your site, this a best site from me, thanks!''

''Wow! This could be one particular of the most helpful blogs We have ever arrive across on this subject. Actually Great. I am also an expert in this topic therefore I can understand your hard work''

''Wow! That truly hit the mark, and this comment is to say thanks!''

''I have been lurking around here for quite sometime but i havent made a comment, just thought i would say hello''

''Hi to you all, I like this project in this web site, you are standing up with spectacular things! This web site is much interesting! My name is Rosen, from Berlin, so I will be a fan of this web page, My interests may not be in the best interest of everyone but I will tell them anyway I love swimming as well as tv shows, and I also listen a lot Radiohead on my parties, I´m single now so boys watch out for me....just kidding :)!

A Quiet Sunday...

Bar my Cadbury's Creme Egg talk it has been a quiet day. Thanks to ''Bobby'' for showing willing. Next Sunday, he has two eggs to bet. I'm quite excited by the thought of popping to the corner shop and saying: ''Can I have a paper, bottle of milk and 4,000 creme eggs, please.'' Yes, my winner has two eggs: a win /each way single and a straight accumulator. You may be thinking I don't want him to win. However, you couldn't be further from the truth.I am willing a win. What a story that would make. I would have that submitted to the Sun before you could say page three Flake girl.

It has been slow going finding new subscribers to HCE Gold. I know many of you will think this is the wrong time to join because the Flat season has yet to start and the two-year-olds can be slow to gather momentum. To my way of thinking, it makes sense to be prepared. You may not believe me, but it makes little difference to me whether we have one subscriber or one thousand. I am all about honesty, and I think we have 15 recruits so far. I am pleased with our loyal supporters. Each is important and I know for a fact they will be impressed. HCE Gold isn't simply firing out tips it is truly selective. What may surprise you, is that each tip is part of a plan to make a profit with the potential of making good money. It has been structured to make the most of opportunities. Being part of HCE Gold means you will be advised in a calculated manner, which is part of a bigger picture. I cannot say too much about this information because it is not going to be made freely available. Why? Because it has substantial value to me. In fact it has more worth than you could imagine. Joining HCE Gold isn't about me making vast sums of money. That may well be the case in 2013, but this year's subscription is simply about trust and having faith. It is about being part of the HCE team. Our subscribers are important because they have shown a very special character trait. Faith. I have high expectations of myself and feel that this new venture is something above and beyond what many blogs or tipping services have forwarded before. However, I am open enough to appreciate that time will be our judge.

First Season Sires for 2012: Like Father Like Son?

et al
British 2yo Racing have a great website with a mine of information, and well worth a look. With the new Flat turf season on the horizon, my mind has turned to the first season sires. To be considered a hot property from a breeding perspective it is vital the first crop make an impact with precocious juveniles, specifically, winners. This article will feature a small selection of the more expensive sires with regard to stud fees and detailing the sires two-year-old racing summary.

Paul Cole Blog Update: Chilly start to February

As per usual, the horses started cantering on February the 1st. The two year olds have done particularly well during the winter. We have bought a more precocious bunch this year with more two year old types. Our only All Weather runner at present is Circumvent, whose target is the Winter Derby. Although he won last year, he was permanently badly drawn, including last time at Lingfield. We are slightly down on numbers this year, we will have 40-50 in training.

Swingland & Gifted Girl have done well during the winter. Both are knocking on the door to be good fillies this year. One of our nicest three year olds, Stormbound, who did not run last year for various reasons is in great form and one to keep an eye on, he may run in the Wood Ditton.

Sovereign Power is shaping up well, he is half brother to Overpowered (one of our nicest two year olds last year) there is a 50% share remaining in him.

It has been as low as -15 degrees here, I was riding out the other day after my holiday and it was -13 degrees, big drop from 34 degrees! But there is nothing better in life than riding out on a sunny, crisp morning and looking forward to the season ahead.

First Season Sires for 2012

If you enjoy your two-year-old horse racing, then you may well have heard of British 2yo Racing website. It is absolutely jam packed with data. Of particular importance to all those breeding fans are the first season sires for 2012. As a taster here is a favourite of mine.

Raven's Pass

Ran four times as a juvenile for three wins. Withdrawn from his intended Newbury debut because of fractious behaviour. Made his race debut after that in a 7f maiden at Yarmouth in July as the 20/1 stable third string ridden by his regular work rider, who rarely rode in races. Won a 7f Listed event later that month and the 7f Group 3 Solario Stakes in September. Final run that year when third in the Dewhurst Stakes behind New Approach.

Managed Risk

Managed Risk

You never know who you'll meet within this blogging community of ours. It's true to say that most bloggers are based within the UK. However, looking down my ''Best Blog Supporters''  there is one name which stands out from the crowd - Managed Risk. To coin a phrase, Jake comes from over the pond. This American racing fan will need little introduction to many a reader because he always makes time to leave a comment - a cheery word - and insight about his journey as an investor. Formally a founder of popular blog The Bank Builder, his recent enterprise has been impressive. What captures my attention is Jake's determination to convey his ongoing battle to keep a disciplined, patient, insightful approach. As he says:

 ''Think profit. Think differently.Think investment, not gambling. Think smart. The right horse in the right race''.

His story is a fight as strenuous as the horse which thunders towards the line. Whether you are a fan of American horse racing or not, take a moment to review Managed Risk.

The Best Unraced Horses For Our Loyal Readers

The mysterious dark horse.

 We could be talking Lloyd's Bank, Dick Francis or a million and one racing websites. 

However, these dark horses are 100% High Class Equine.

Many of our regulars know we write for Racing Ahead magazine, a monthly publication. It's a chance to illustrate our expertise within two-year-old horse racing to a wider audience. This page is an extension of those type of juveniles but free to those who visit our little blog.

So what makes these Dark Horse so interesting? Well, it wouldn't be fitting to tell the story behind their publication on this page. Being of a secretive nature. However, be assured this is no haven for odds on backers or equine fodder enjoyed by TV pundits and their classic 'one to put in your notebook'. These are truly hidden gems. A few of these juveniles may be given as tips for HCE Regular/Elite. But it is unlikely because these will not feature the highest win rate. However, each  deserve their moment in the spot light rather than a passing mention on a blog post. They have something to say which sets them apart from the norm. Don't expect every selection to win. It doesn't work like that. The aim is for a profit this season and hopefully strike gold with a couple of fancy prices.  

Welcome to our Dark Horses. All 3yo (worthy of note for the new Flat season)

Red Corvette (Michael Bell)
This bay filly is yet to race and unlikely to be seen until a three-year-old but a very exciting prospect. Sired by Galileo out of Red Evie who won nine from fifteen starts, a multiple group winner & twice Group 1 victor when trained by Bell. With total prize winning of just under £400,000 and official rating of 115 she was a hugely successful/popular racehorse. This youngster is owned by Magnier, Smith & Tabor. She was given a Fillies' Mile (Group 1) entry, which gives hope she will take after her mare. 

Dick Bos (Peter Chapple-Hyam)
This chestnut colt is a son of Dutch Art out of the winning mare Cosmic Countess. A seventh foal, he cost £48,000. Although a relatively cheap purchase, this juvenile is held in high regard by the stable and owned by The Comic Strip Heroes who have been very successful with a number of talented juveniles over the years. This colt is yet to make his debut but must have suffered a setback because he has been entered for a couple of Stakes races throughout his 2yo season and also considered for a Group race. The stable's juveniles have a fair strike rate on debut and although he will be kept for a three-year-old campaign it would be no surprise to see Dick Bos win early in his career.

Daliance (Tom Dascombe)
This son of Dalakhani has may have slipped under the radar because he made his debut at Clairefontaine, France, at the beginning of August. He finished a creditable 5th, staying on at the finish, beaten three lengths, after being hampered. A 120,000euro purchase, he is one of few juveniles to be entered at Group level for the stable, which is a positive sign that he will be winning sooner rather than later. With stamina-packed breeding he will appreciate a trip much greater than the 7f he faced on debut. It is possible Dascombe may look for an easy win on the AW over the winter.

Gingernut (John Gosden)
Few trainers compare to the talents of John Gosden. Gingernut is yet to make his debut but could be worthy of your consideration. This son of Galileo is a home bred by Normandie Stud out of the Listed-winning mare Foodbroker Fancy. This February-born colt is likely to appreciate a test of stamina, so it's not surprising he has been slow to come to hand. However, he is rated by the stable and should make into a decent three-year-old prospect. 

Nine Realms (William Haggis)
This 100,000gns yearling is closely related to high-class winner Aqlaam, the dam unraced but a half-sister to classy stayer Persian Punch. This bay colt was one of a select few juveniles to be entered at Group class from a stable that knows a good horse. In addition, Vow, a daughter of Motivator is owned by Highclere  Thoroughbreds Racing and at one time considered for the Fillies' Mile (Group 1).

Samoan (Brian Meehan)
Brian Meehan & the Sangster family have a reputation for delivering top-class horses. This youngster is part owned by Mrs J Magnier and a potentially smart horse. Not the most expensive breeze-up purchase (vendor) at 45,000gns, this bay colt by DanehillSwettenham Stud and is held in some regard by connections. He was considered for a couple of Group races in the latter part of the season but is yet to make his debut and will be kept for a three-year-old campaign.     

Saunta (David Simcock)
This is one horse that will be wining at three-years-old. A bay filly by Invincible Spirit out of the useful 5f winning mare Baize, she cost 95,000gns as a yearling. Her trainer isn't one to throw around fancy entries for the fun of it and after being entered for a couple of Stakes races, once holding an engagement for the Lowther (Group 2), it looks as thought she must have been close to making her debut but probably suffered a minor setback. Saunta is well regarded in the stable and one for the notebook. 

Valbchek (Jeremy Noseda)
Few trainers have a wealth of owners such as Jeremy Noseda. A name that has been connected with talented two-year-olds across the seasons. This year alone Roman Soldier, Talwar, Regal Realm & Harvard N Yale have shown class. This bay colt by Acclamation coast 110,000gns as a yearling and owned by Richard Keen & Paul Smith. This youngster was entered for three Group races throughout his first season - including the Gimcrack (Group 2) - but never made the race track. As far as fancy engagements go he looked one of the better juveniles in the yard and should win in his three-year-old career. 

Gold Edition (Jeremy Noseda)
This American-bred son of Mr Greeley is another of Noseda's juvenile prospects which is likely to make its debut at three. This chestnut colt was entered in the early declaration stages of the Phoenix Park Stake (Group 1), Gimcrack Stakes (Group 2) & at least one more prestigious race so must have been showing a touch of class on the gallops.    

Shada (Sir Michael Stoute)
It's not all about debutantes. This chestnut filly went off favourite for a decent Newmarket maiden towards the end of August. This daughter of Galileo finished third in a tantalising performance. By all account that was a competitive race because the winner has gone on to Group 1 success, the second, Diala, is held in high regard by William Haggis (with intentions of going for the 1,000gns), while the sixth, Bana Wu ran a superb race in the Rockfel Stakes (Group 2). Shada looks a certain future winner on that form alone - it could well be Listed class for starters. This juvenile cost 290,000gns as a yearling, a full sister to a Group winner. The dam was raced in France. Sir Michael Stoute had this filly entered for the Fillies' Mile (Group 1) and a horse that could well hit the heights at three.

Alzahra (Roger Varian)
Following in the footsteps of his talented mentor was never going to be an easy challenge but this reserved trainer has done connections proud. Alzahra is one of few talked-about fillies not to have made a racecourse appearance but an interesting candidate for a belated 2yo campaign or more likely a three-year-old career. This bay filly - a daughter of Exceed And Excel - was one of two juveniles entered for the Lowther (Group 2). The dam was a 5f winner, who herself was a half-sister to Classic-winning Attraction (winner of ten of her fifteen races). On breeding, this youngster could well start her career at 5/6f and must - as far as the lofty entries indicate - have a level of ability.  
All That Rules (Sir Henry Cecil) 
Andrew Tinkler has been a prominent supporter of horse racing in the last few years and it will no doubt be a proud moment to see this son of Galileo make his debut for such a gifted trainer. Probably not one of the leading lights but a horse that will be seen next season and worthy of respect.

Great Namoos (Brian Meehan)
If a talented dam makes for a good horse then this bay colt is a winner. This son of Dansili is out of the Queen Mary (Group 2) & Lowther (Group 2) winner Flashy Wings, who was trained by Mick Channon. It is perhaps surprising that Jaber Abdulla has sent this juvenile to Meehan. However, this could be a talented prospect. He has been entered for a Group race this season but yet to make it to the course and worth noting in his three-year-old campaign.

Junior Diary (Brian Meehan)  
This American-bred filly is a daughter of Mr Greeley out of the winning mare Cross Channel who was trained by Ed Dunlop, and similarly bred by Cliveden Stud. Her owner Mrs Lucinda Freedman done well with another youngster in Meehan's care, Brevity. This January foal is yet to make her race course bow but may be a capable sort considering connections gave this chestnut a Fillies' Mile (Grouyp 1) entry.
