By Cheveley Park’s resident Medicean and a full-sister to one of his chief money-spinners in the GII King Edward S., GII Connaught Cup and GII Play the King S. winner Dimension (GB), MGSW-Can, SW & GSP-US, $568,274, Verandah was sent off the 5-1 joint-second favourite and broke slowly before racing lazily in rear as Robert Tart strove to get her engaged. Once under cover against the rail, the homebred travelled kindly and when asked at the top of the straight produced an electric change of gear to strike the front 1 1/2 furlongs out. Eased heavily in the last 75 yards, the bay who is also a half-sister to the operation’s 2009 G2 Windsor Forest S. winner and 2008 G1 1000 Guineas runner-up Spacious (GB) (Nayef), Hwt. Older Mare-Ire at 7-9 1/2f, MGSW & MG1SP-Eng, G1SP-Ire, $695,671, still enjoyed a two-length advantage over Fille de Reve (GB) (Iffraaj {GB}) who denied the winner’s stablemate West Palm Beach (Ire) (Scat Daddy) second by a short head. Spacious was herself an impressive four-length winner on her juvenile debut prior to taking the G2 May Hill S. and her next start was when beaten a half-length in the 2008 Newmarket Classic by Natagora (Fr) (Divine Light {Jpn}). Placed on four more occasions at the highest level, she is related to the two smart fellow James Fanshawe-trained mares in Portal (GB) (Hernando {Fr}), who was third in the G2 Lancashire Oaks, and Ice Palace (GB) (Polar Falcon). The former went on to produce the G3 Bahrain Trophy and G3 Gordon S. runner-up Windshear (GB) (Hurricane Run {Ire}), while the latter was responsible for the dual listed scorer Queen of Ice (GB) (Selkirk). Palatial, who was a four-time winner and just shy of listed class, also has a yearling filly by Dutch Art (GB) named Edifice (GB). Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, £4,528.
