Believe in Fairy

Irish Champion Stakes winner Snow Fairy has overcome injury to win Group 1 stakes in five countries. She’s now a mare on the verge of worldwide fame:

“I usually don’t notice these things,” said rider Frankie Dettori, winning the ten-furlong contest for the fifth time, “but I could hear the crowd get behind her and the roar when she crossed the line. I’ve had some great days here but this one was all about this mare.”

Romance and record combine to make her an organic star.

And to think, she might not have been.

Hey - try to find a replay for 2yo Sky Lantern's win - absolutely amazing accelerations on this filly and they may bring her to Breeder's Cup but would have to pay a supplemental - well, maybe they will. Picture of this grey girl in the article.  I love her name.

She really powered home....

Sky Lantern lights the way to Breeders Cup after late entry

Racing gambles take many forms and a successful punt here yesterday had nothing to do with the betting ring. Hong Kong-based owner Ben Keswick paid a late entry fee of €22,000 (£17,500) to run his Sky Lantern in the Moyglare Stud Stakes, Ireland's top contest for juvenile fillies, despite her having been beaten twice at a much lower level. And his faith in the judgement of trainer Richard Hannon was gloriously justified as the grey romped home.

I looked a bit for Sky Lantern's replay but haven't come across it yet.  It's worth looking for  : )

Ed Dunlop plots a worldwide autumn campaign for remarkable Snow Fairy

“The options can be put into ­various packages. The European package is the Prix de L’Arc de ­Triomphe, the Prix De L’Opera or the Champion Stakes, in which a certain Frankel runs.

The American package is either the Fillies And Mares’ or the Turf at the Breeders’ Cup and then there is the Far Eastern package, which would be the Japan Cup or Hong Kong. Potentially, she could have one run in Europe, one in America and one in the Far East. It depends on all sorts of things and she could well even stay in training.”
