The Platinum Queen
From the Tattersalls Guineas Breeze Up Sale, this filly is by COTAI GLORY; Europe's Champion First-Crop Sire.
The reasoning in purchasing this speedball of a filly is simple, she clocked the fastest timed breeze of the whole sale, (25.75 secs) trumping all other lots (circa 200 horses) in scorching her path along the final 2.3f of Newmarket’s Rowley Mile course.
She clocked 3 scintillating sectionals, and by equating times to race distances, she’s beaten the 2nd quickest breezer by half a length, with a further half a length back to the 3rd and 4th, and streets ahead of the rest of her opponents. That’s over just 2.3f and likely to have been an even greater winning distance over a further distance of ground. She looks special!!!!
You can see from both her walk video and her breeze that’s she’s all about speed, she’s compact, strong, switched on and simply skipped across the turf, grabbing the ground, flicking her feet and pointing her toe in pursuit of the winning line, more quickly than any other horse in the sale, lest we forget, be that colt or filly. Her breeze is impossible to fault.
She’s got black type filly written all over her, with enough size to train on too, as a 3yo. She hails from the mighty Tally Ho Stud who seem imperious in producing top notch, Breeze Ups graduates, notably, currently, for Richard Fahey, the dual Group 1 winning PERFECT POWER. So, who better to send the latest Tally Ho showstopper to, than Richard Fahey, the master of Musley Bank, North Yorkshire.
(October 2nd): She wins the Group 1 Prix de l'Abbaye at ParisLongchamp on Arc day. A 'win and you're in' race for the Breeders Cup no less! https://www.racingpost.com/news/race-reports/the-platinum-queen-crowned-in-abbaye-as-she-ends-long-wait-for-juvenile-winner/581882
