Dawn Approach Tops 2,000 Guineas Entrants
Last season's European champion 2YO and unbeaten colt Dawn Approach (New Approach-Hymn of the Dawn, by Phone Trick) is among 72 entries for the English 2,000 Guineas to be held at Newmarket on May 4th. According to irishtimes.com, Dawn Aproach's trainer Jim Bolger – responding to how the colt has progressed over winter – replied, "I've been asked that question regularly over the last three weeks and I've now simplified the answer to one word – awesome." Bred by Bolger and now racing in Godolphin's colours, Dawn Approach has won 6 races (including the Gr1 Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket, Gr1 National Stakes at Curragh, Gr2 Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot & Listed Rochestown Stakes at Naas) from 6 starts for £361,094 earnings. Below is his win in the 2012 Coventry Stakes.
