Boland Stud received a superb update for their November Two Year Old Sale draft following the running of this weekend’s Breeders’ Cup meeting.
Classy three-year-old Tuesday, a brave winner of the G1 Cazoo Oaks earlier this year, showed her class when demolishing a top-class field to win Saturday’s G1 Maker’s Mark Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf at Keeneland.
Ryan Moore was happy to bide his time aboard the three-year-old throughout, manoeuvring Tuesday into a winning position as they swung for home.
Tuesday was full of running as she hit the wire, with In Italian picking up the silver medal, while John and Thady Gosden’s pre-race favourite Nashwa had to settle for a fast-finishing fourth under Hollie Doyle having been slowly away and boxed in further back than ideal on the rail for the majority of the contest.
“Ryan gave her a brilliant ride,” O’Brien said as he celebrated his first win in the race.
“I thought her trip was a mile and a quarter but she has won over a mile and a half and she got this trip (an extended nine furlongs) well enough.”
On future plans he added: “The plan might be to go to Ashford Stud and retire her, but there’s a good chance I think of her staying in training next year in which case I would consider the Hong Kong Cup, but it all rests on her not going to Ashford.”
The regally bred Tuesday, who has won or placed in seven G1 races, is a daughter of Galileo and G1 Coronation Stakes/G1 Matron Stakes winner Lillie Langtry -which makes Tuesday a full-sister to former Cartier Horse Of The Year Minding and G1 Irish 1000 Guineas winner Empress Josephine.
This is also the immediate family of this year’s eye catching G1 Qatar Prix de l’Opera Longines winner Place Du Carrousel.
Boland Stud are proud to be offering a Lancaster Bomber filly (Lot 149) from this exceptional family at this month’s November Two Year Old Sale.
Clearly, the sky is the limit for this filly!
