Footstepsinthesand Adds UK Gr3

Thursday, 14th April 2011

On the UK track overnight, Gr1-winning former Coolmore shuttler Footstepsinthesand (Giant's Causeway-Glatisant, by Rainbow Quest) added a group success when Irish-bred daughter Barefoot Lady (Footstepsinthesand-Lady Angharad, by Tenby) returned from a 6-months spell to snatch victory by a neck in final strides of the £50,000 (A$78,000) Gr3 Nell Gwyn Stakes (7 furlongs) for 3YO fillies at Newmarket. Barefoot Lady (ridden by Paul Hanagan for trainer Richard Fahey) defeated favoured US-bred Sing Softly (Hennessy-Misty Hour, by Miswaki) & Maqaasid (Green Desert-Eshaadeh, by Storm Cat). Last year Barefoot Lady recorded placings in both the Gr3 Firth Of Clyde Dtakes (6 furlongs) at Ayr & Listed Rockingham Stakes (6 furlongs) at York; overall she now has 3 wins & 2 placings from 5 starts.
