Purchased at the Tattersalls Book 2 Sale, this filly is by GLENEAGLES.
A Champion 2YO & European Champion 3YO Miler, Gleneagles won Ireland’s Premier 2yo race, The Group 1 National Stakes and went on to win three Group 1 races as a 3yo, winning both the English and Irish 2000 Guineas, no less. Read about her sire here: https://coolmore.com/stallions/gleneagles.
His progeny have really started to emerge as they’ve matured, just as their sire did, on the track. A progressive profile through both their 2yo and 3yo careers, is what Gleneagles’ stock seem to display a propensity for, and they often appreciate a distance of a mile or a tad further.
Our filly is from a very classy family, as you’d expect, being out of a mare deemed worthy of deigning a Coolmore Stallion, her grandsires are GALILEO and CAPE CROSS no less. Her great grandsires are SADLER’S WELLS, STORM CAT, GREEN DESERT and NIGHT SHIFT. She almost couldn’t be better bred.
She possesses a very elegant look to her, she’s perfectly well-proportioned and walks with some swagger.

Training Update: Hasn’t lived up to expectations unfortunately. But she is handicapped and ready to be competitive in her races, off her current handicap mark. She’s going to be busy on the AW this Winter, after which, a decision on her place on the MPR roster, for 2022, will be taken. Suffice to say, she be a regular runner for her owners over the Winter and should she do particularly well, that may prompt us to keep her beyond then.
