Cheveley On Agenda For Joyeuse

Friday, 13th September 2013

Meanwhile, connections of blue-blooded 3YO filly Joyeuse (Oasis Dream-Kind, by Danehill) say the Gr1 Cheveley Park Stakes (6 furlongs) is also on her agenda, reports racinguk.com. The half-sister to champion Frankel has thus far won 2 of her 3 starts, including a last-start victory in the Listed Dick Poole Stakes where she scored by a neck over Fastnet Rock filly Dorothy B. Teddy Grimthorpe, racing manager for owner Khalid Abdullah, said: "The Cheveley Park Stakes looks to be a realistic target for her. She has come out of the Salisbury race fine. She was a bit rusty as she had not run since Royal Ascot, but she is a mature filly so she behaved very well and took it all very much in her stride." However, Grimthorpe added that Joyeuse would have to improve considerably if she is to be competitive at the elite level. "She is completely different to Frankel - every horse is different to Frankel - but (breeding-wise) she benefits greatly from her close association with him," he said. "If she proves herself good enough in the Cheveley Park then the 1,000 Guineas would have to be part of the long-term plan for her."
