On the eve of the 2022 running of the first classic of the season, the Two Thousand Guineas, we’re absolutely delighted to announce the acquisition of this gorgeous 2yo filly by a dual Two Thousand Guineas winner, Churchill, from a family full of winners…
Purchased at the record breaking Guineas Breeze-Up sale, she is by second season stallion, Churchill, the winner of both the Two Thousand Guineas here at Newmarket and also the Irish equivalent at the Curragh. An exciting stallion, himself by Galileo and who enjoyed a productive first season in 2021 but who appears to be seeing significant improvement in his stock from two to three. Our filly is out of an excellent winner producing mare in Market Day, formerly trained by Luca Cumani who won four races herself, and who has produced five winners including a dual Listed winner and Group placed. Indeed there are good Black Type winners right through her extended family and we are excited to have acquired her.
She is heading back to the same yard where her dam was trained, at Bedford House Stables and, as yet, unnamed she will now be trained by Charlie Fellowes who has a real knack of getting the best out of the fillies in his care and who won two group races in 2021 with Eve Lodge and Vadream. He has, additionally, won consecutive runnings of the Sandringham Handicap at Royal Ascot and this gorgeous bay filly will be ideally suited to Charlie’s patient approach which has proven very successful.
A good mover who showed a terrific willingness, really stretching her neck out in her breeze and if she takes that sort of attitude into her races, we can expect a lot of excitement and a great deal of fun with her. We had been patiently waiting for the right horse to come along and, in a record breaking market, we were confident that our patience would be rewarded. It has been and we are absolutely delighted to have recruited this smashing looking filly.
Having scoured the catalogue for some while, independently, we were delighted when Charlie highlighted this filly as his pick of the sale also and, therefore, he is naturally, very pleased with our purchase to add to his growing string.
She will race in the colours of the Newmarket Racing Club and a limited number of shares will soon be made available to purchase and we look forward to sharing full details with you in due course… watch this space!
