SECOND GROUP WIN FOR BATED BREATH 2YO DAAHYEH

The Royal Ascot Albany Stakes Gr.3 winner earned an automatic berth in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf Gr.1 with her winning performance in the Rockfel Stakes Gr.2 at Newmarket on Friday (27th September).  

As well as her two Group wins this season she has been a model of consistency having also been runner up in the  Moyglare Stud Stakes Gr.1 and Duchess of Cambridge Stakes Gr.2.

"William [Buick] was very impressed with her - he felt she didn't handle the dip very well, but he loved how she moved into it between the three and the two," trainer Roger Varian said. "We even had the discussion after she came second in the Moyglare that the Breeders' Cup might be an option and I'm sure it still is, but it will all depend on her condition." 

He continued: "She would have to prove herself at a mile, but I'm sure you could compare an American mile to a Curragh or Newmarket seven furlongs, which is what she has contested the last twice, so you would be hopeful she would get the trip."
