Blue Bunting Wins UK Gr1 1000 Guineas

Monday, 2nd May 2011

Also in the UK overnight, Godolphin's US-bred Blue Bunting (Dynaformer-Miarixa, by Linamix) returned from a 6-months spell to finish powerfully from back in the field & score a 0.75-length victory in the £350,000 (A$543,000) Gr1 1000 Guineas (8 furlongs) for 3YO fillies at Newmarket. Blue Bunting (ridden by Frankie Dettori for trainer Mahmood Al Zarooni) defeated Ballydoyle's Irish-bred Together (Galileo-Shadow Song, by Pennekamp) & Maqaasid (Green Desert-Eshaadeh, by Storm Cat). Blue Bunting (a US$200,000 yearling at the 2009 Fasig-Tipton August Sale) took her record to 3 wins (also including 2010's Listed Montrose Fillies Stakes over 8 furlongs at Newmarket) & a runner-up from 4 starts for £232,518 (A$360,000) earnings.
