A SIZZLING SUPER SATURDAY FOR SIRES
The EU based stallions enjoyed across the cards success on Saturday (26th May).
The ball started rolling when RAIL LINK’s son Montaser put up a gutsy performance when he and the runner-up Rainbow Gold pulled well clear of their rivals in the Betfred Mobile Sports Handicap at Haydock.
Bated Breath (DANSILI) soon joined Montaser in the winners enclosure when breaking the track record in the Betfred.com Temple Stakes Gr.2. Trainer Roger Charlton commented after the race: "He showed terrific speed. I feel sorry for Sole Power but we beat the right horse. He never had cover. If we can find a five-furlong race with real speed and cover he will be even more impressive. He was in front a bit too long really, but George did a great job. I’m just so pleased for the horse; he’d never won a Group race before and deserves this, he’s so consistent. He’s very good looking and will make a great stallion."
The action moved to The Curragh where Power (OASIS DREAM) took the Abu Dhabi Irish 2000 Guineas Gr.1 in great style. Power became the first Classic winner for OASIS DREAM, who is the sire of nine Gr.1 winners to date.
It was not long before DANSILI was on the score sheet yet again when Emulous won the TRI European Stakes Gr.3 on her seasonal debut. The filly, who won the Matron Stakes Gr.1 last year, is trained by Dermot Weld.
With places for Reply (OASIS DREAM) in the Irish Guineas and Dandino (DANSILI) in the Southern Daily Echo Tapster Stakes L at Goodwood, the sun really did sizzle for the Juddmonte sires.
