Pretty Polly Next Target For Bluestocking

Bluestocking | PA Media

Recent G2 Middleton S. heroine Bluestocking (GB) (Camelot {GB}) is targeting the G1 Pretty Polly S. at the Curragh on June 29.

The Juddmonte homebred, who is trained by Ralph Beckett, was also under consideration for the G1 Coronation Cup on May 31 at Epsom. In 2023, the filly was second in the G1 Irish Oaks and the G1 British Champions Fillies & Mares S.

“You're always hoping with a filly like her that she'll improve from three to four, that's not a given but I think we all felt she was a weak filly last year that would improve, so it was nice to see that she did,” said Barry Mahon, Juddmonte's European racing manager.

“She handled the drop back in trip and the better ground, I think it was an impressive display and I think we'll stick against our sex for the time being, with the Pretty Polly being the most logical option at this moment in time.

“Later on in the season, we can venture into taking on the opposite sex, but at this point in time, I think we'll try and win our Group 1 against our own sex and see how we go from there.”
