Dark Angel Filly Takes the Eye at Wolverhampton


Dark Angel | Yeomanstown Stud

Observations on the European Racing Scene turns the spotlight on the best European races of the day, highlighting well-pedigreed horses early in their careers, horses of note returning to action and young runners that achieved notable results in the sales ring. Monday's Observations features a full-sister to SW Dark Liberty (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}).

1.30 Wolverhampton, Novice, £5,300, 2yo, f, 6f 20y (AWT)
SUNSTRIKE (IRE) (Dark Angel {Ire}), who was a 390,000gns Tattersalls October Yearling Sale Book 2 purchase by Qatar Racing, is an intriguing debutante for the John and Thady Gosden stable in a potentially decent encounter on the Tapeta. A full-sister to the German listed scorer Dark Liberty (Ire) and a half to last year's Listed Prix Coronation scorer Queen of Love (Ire) (Kingman {GB}), the February-foaled bay meets Amo Racing's fellow newcomer Hello You (Ire) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}), a Ralph Beckett-trained €350,000 Arqana Deauville graduate whose dam is a half to Invincible Spirit's Group 1-winning sprinter Signs of Blessing (Ire).
