Love Targeting Mooresbridge


Love | Scoop Dyga

Last year's champion 3-year-old filly and dual Classic winner Love (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) is among the entries for Saturday's G3 Alleged S. at The Curragh, but trainer Aidan O'Brien has indicated that the chestnut is likely to wait for the G2 Mooresbridge S. at the same venue on May 3. Love's stablemate Broome (Ire) (Australia {GB}), a multiple Group 3-winning 5-year-old, is likely to deputize in the Alleged.

“Broome is likely to run in the Alleged at The Curragh on Saturday,” O'Brien said. “He's already had a run, and Love might wait for the Mooresbridge. It's a long year, and we might wait a bit longer with her.”

Love made seven starts at two in 2019, the highlight being a win in the G1 Moyglare Stud S. She stepped out just three times last year but won on each occasion at Group 1 level: the 1000 Guineas, Oaks and Yorkshire Oaks. Love was withdrawn from the G1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe in October on account of the testing ground just prior to Ballydoyle's remaining runners defecting after a feed contamination.
