Race entries

A very classy looking filly from a fast fillies’ family, she’s ready to crack on with and we ought to have her racing on a very quick turnaround, all being well. Of the 251 horses in the Goresbridge 'race', at the Tattersalls Ireland Breeze Up Sale, she finished joint 8th overall and clocked the 3rd quickest fillies’ time, finishing just in behind the €370,000 sale topping Sioux Nation filly to boot, so with a €50,000 hammer price, we’d suggest she represents one of the bargains of the sale.

See her walk and profile, here:

By INNS OF COURT, her breeze was fantastic, everything we look for, and she hails from the same farm, Tally Ho Stud, who produced ,and sold us, the Group 1 winner The Platinum Queen for 58,000gns, in 2022. Who better to ask to train the filly than Alice Haynes? - who provided us, only last week, with a LISTED BLACK TYPE winner by Inns Of Court, in the shape of the 3yo filly, ZIGGY'S DREAM - clearly the stars are aligning, I’m sure you can see, and that you hopefully agree!

Watch her breeze, here: 

Our filly was getting stronger and stronger through the race and extrapolating her times out, from 2.3f to say 5f or even 6f we feel sure she’d be heading for a podium position, a few places ahead of her actual overall finishing position in the race. One other salient point, we felt, on the day, the ground was riding pretty quick at Fairyhouse, and we know that most Inns Of Court progeny are, more than happy with ‘give underfoot’. It could be that there’s a further angle to factor in, when assessing this filly’s performance and potential levels of future achievement.

Extremely well bought, both Alice and ourselves, would strongly suggest.

She qualifies for the €10,000 'IREIncentive bonus.'

Training update (29th May): Alice says - "She has settled in well and can be seen having a canter down the town in the video below. She covers a lot of ground and carries herself well. We will step up her work in HQ and look to see where her starting point will be."
