American Queen Mary Winner Crimson Advocate to Race in Europe

Crimson Advocate | Ryan Thompson

Crimson Advocate (Nyquist), who flew in from the U.S. to defeat 25 European fillies in the G2 Queen Mary S. at Royal Ascot last year, will be back in England to contest the five-furlong G1 King Charles III S. (formerly the Kings Stand S.) at Ascot June 19. She will be saddled by John and Thady Gosden and stay on at their Clarehaven Stables for a European campaign.

The three-year-old daughter of Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist ran sixth, beaten just 2 1/2 lengths in the GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint, leading Big Evs (Blue Point {Ire}) into the final furlong, on her first run in the peacock blue and old gold colors of her owners Wathnan Racing, who purchased her before that race. She returned this season with a one-length win over five furlongs on the turf at Gulfstream Park in the Roar S. in her final start for trainer George Weaver on May 18.

Case Clay, Wathnan Racing's America representative, said, 'Crimson Advocate is all about speed and we're very hopeful she can give Wathnan lots of fun in the big European sprints. George and his team have done a fantastic job training her for a second crack at a big Royal Ascot prize, and we are really looking forward to seeing her in action in England this summer.'

A $100,000 OBS October graduate, Crimson Advocate has won three of her five lifetime starts, breaking her maiden in the Royal Palm Juvenile Fillies S. in May of her two-year-old year.
