Nannina Wins UK Gr1 Fillies Mile
Cheveley Park home-bred juvenile Nannina (Medicean-Hill Hopper, by Danehill) grabbed a "last-stride win" in England's £175,000 (A$420,000) Gr1 Meon Valley Stud Fillies Mile (8 furlongs) for 2YO fillies at Newmarket, reported thoroughbredinternet.com. Nannina (ridden by Jimmy Fortune for trainer John Gosden) defeated Irish visitor Alexandrova (Sadler's Wells-Shouk, by Shirley Heights) & multiple group stakes-winner Nasheej (Swain-El Nafis, by Kingmambo). Nannina (who also won England's recent Gr3 Prestige Stakes) is the "1st Gr1 winner & 2nd stakes-winner from the 1st crop of 8YO stallion Medicean (Machiavellian-Mystic Goddess, by Storm Bird) who stands at Cheveley Park Stud in Newmarket".
