Relative Of Minding Starts At Dundalk

Justify | Sarah Andrew

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. Friday's Observations features a relative of star Group 1 filly Minding (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}).

19.30 Dundalk, Mdn, €13,000, 3yo/up, f/m, 10f 150y (AWT)
MOTHER NATURE (IRE) (Justify) is an eyecatcher as the first foal out of the maiden winner Heaven On Earth (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), who is in turn a full-sister to Ballydoyle's luminaries Minding (Ire), Tuesday (Ire) and Empress Josephine (Ire). Aidan O'Brien pitches the G1 Irish 1000 Guineas entry into the maiden he won last year with Justify's Red Riding Hood (Ire) and she meets Moyglare Stud's intriguing newcomer Step To Somewhere (GB) (Sea The Stars {Ire}), a Dermot Weld-trained 280,000gns Book 1 purchase who is a granddaughter of the dual Group 2 winner Best Terms (GB) (Exceed And Excel {Aus}).
