Gleneagles Newcomer Wins The Goffs Million

One Look |


Prepared for a debut of extra significance by Paddy Twomey, the Connolly Racing Syndicate's One Look (Ire) (Gleneagles {Ire}) stormed to a six-length success in The Curragh's Goffs Million on Saturday to cap a red-letter day for the stable. Well-supported into 5-1 second favouritism, the €65,000 Goffs Orby graduate waited towards the back early under Billy Lee. Sent forward as the even-money favourite Cherry Blossom (Ire) (No Nay Never) made her move passing two out, she swamped that rival at the furlong pole and powered clear for an emphatic introduction.

“She's a nice filly and she's been a nice filly all year,” Twomey said. “I thought I would have run her earlier, but it's just the way it worked out and she was just ready to run this week. I gave her an Irish Guineas entry on Wednesday. That was a big performance to do that on debut. Maybe she'll say yes to running again, but I doubt it. We have nice two-year-olds. I'm delighted as the owners sent me two horses this year for the first time and both have won first time out now. Juxtaposition won the first mile maiden at Leopardstown.”


One Look's dam Holy Salt, who also produced the G3 Premio Carlo d'Alessio victor Baptism (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}), is kin to four black-type performers headed by the G1 Star Epsom hero I'm Your Man (Fr) (Cape Cross {Ire}) and the G3 Prix Penelope winner and G1 Prix Saint-Alary-placed Perfect Hedge (GB) (Unfuwain). She is in turn the dam of the G2 Prix Vicomtesse de Vigier winner Called To The Bar (Ire) (Henrythenavigator), while the family also includes Poliglote (GB). Holy Salt also has a colt foal by Sea The Moon (Ger).
