Rock Of Gibraltar Adds Ireland Gr2
At The Curragh in Ireland, 7-time Gr1-winning former shuttler Rock of Gibraltar (Danehill-Offshore Boom, by Be My Guest) added a group success when 4YO mare Belle De Crecy (Rock Of Gibraltar-Bloemfontain, by Cape Cross) scored by 1.75-lengths for trainer Johnny Murtagh in the 100,000 Gr2 Blandford Stakes (10 furlongs) for 3YO+ f&m, over 3YO fillies Hot Snap (Pivotal-Midsummer, by Kingmambo) & Magical Dream (Galileo-Red Evie, by Intikhab). This was Belle De Crecy's maiden stakes victory and took her record to 3 wins & 4 placings (including the Listed Hurry Harriet Stakes) from 8 starts for £81,076 earnings.
