Search For A Song Done For The Year


Trainer Dermot Weld | Racing Post

Search For A Song (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), who sprung a 10-1 upset when beating Kew Gardens (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) home in Sunday’s G1 Irish St Leger, is done for the year, according to trainer Dermot Weld.

“Search For A Song came out of her race well, but is finished for the year,” he said. “She has done us proud, and we look forward to a serious campaign next year.”

Moyglare Stud’s homebred 3-year-old filly made a winning debut on May 30 and has been highly progressive since. Second in the Listed Naas Oaks Trial on June 26, she was fourth in the G1 Irish Oaks three weeks later before shipping to Britain to take York’s Listed Galtres S. on Aug. 22. She led all the way at The Curragh to win the Irish St Leger by 2 1/4 lengths.

Weld also offered an update on another 3-year-old filly he sent out to victory at The Curragh on Sunday, The Aga Khan’s Tarnawa (Ire) (Shamardal), winner of the G2 Blandford S.

“Tarnawa came out of her race equally well and has three options: the [G1] Fillies & Mares [S.] at Ascot in October, the [GI] EP Taylor in Canada and the [G1] Prix de l’Opera on Arc day. We’ll decide which one nearer the time. Both fillies did us proud.”
