Princess Zoe Headed to Alleged


Princess Zoe & Tony Mullins |

Group 1 winner Princess Zoe (Ger) (Jukebox Jury {Ire}) is targeting the G3 Alleged S. at The Curragh in April for her seasonal return according to trainer Tony Mullins. A winner of the G1 Prix du Cadran, the charismatic grey mare was last seen in action finishing fourth in the G1 Prix Royal-Oak at ParisLongchamp in October.

“We're looking at the Alleged S.,” the Gowran trainer tweeted. “It's only a mile and a quarter. I don't know if it's a winnable distance for her at that level, but we're going to try it.

“I have always been adamant that she's as good at a mile and a half as she is at two and a half–so we're going to set about proving it. If we're wrong we'll switch back and use distance races, but her work has shown me she is a group filly at a mile and a half–and we intend to prove it to the public.”

He added, “She's done loads of slow work in very soft ground and will probably go away now. Jim Bolger very kindly lets us work in his place so she might go there or up the Old Vic on The Curragh and then we'll decide the next move after the first piece of work.”
