Coolmore Colt Highly Fancied In Racing Post Trophy

Thursday, 25th October 2012

In the UK, Saturday's Gr1 Racing Post Trophy is seen as an important trial for next year's 3YO classics and the current favourite is debut maiden winner Kingsbarns (Galileo-Baltisaal, by Belmez) for Coolmore's Ballydoyle operation, reports guardian.co.uk. Last year's winner Camelot (Montjeu-Tarfah, by Kingmambo) went on to win the UK Gr1 2000 Guineas and both the Gr1 Epsom and Gr1 Irish Derbies. Kingsbarns is a half-brother to stakes- winning fillies Sweeter Still (by Rock of Gibraltar), who captured the Gr3 Senorita Stakes and Listed Sandy Blue Handicap, as well as Belle Artiste (by Namid) who landed the Gr3 Leopardstown 1000 Guineas Trial.
