Hat-trick for fillies
27th Jun 2017
Fillies performed particularly well in last week’s Plus 10 races, with British two-year-old fillies collecting three bonuses at Thirsk, Ripon and Newmarket.
Thirsk’s Plus 10 bonus winner, Silca Mistress, by Dutch Art, scored on her third attempt, rewarding Owner/Breeders, Aldridge Racing Partnership, Carmel and Gary Aldridge, Carmel commented: “Silca Mistress comes from a very long line of Silca horses dating back to the 1980s. As an owner/breeder the Plus 10 bonus is an enormous incentive to continue the dream of breeding a winner!” The other wining two-year-old fillies were Silver Starlight, trained by Tim Easterby, and Cape Bunting trained by Mark Johnston.
In Ireland, Red Persian collected more than €30,000 through the addition of a Plus 10 bonus to his winning prize money, the two-year-old by Haatef was bought for just €5,000 as a yearling at Goffs sales.
Last week’s Plus 10 winners: Yaarmen, Game Starter, Red Persian, Theobald, Amenette, Rostropovich, Silca Mistress, Armed Response, Silver Starlight, Invincible Army, Cape Bunting.
