Boughey Aiming Cachet At Breeders' Cup After Break

Classic heroine Cachet (Ire) (Aclaim {Ire}) will be given a break prior to resuming her campaign with an eye to the Breeders' Cup in November, trainer George Boughey announced on Thursday. Fourth in the GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf at Del Mar, the Highclere Thoroughbred Racing colourbearer resumed with an easy win in the G3 Nell Gwyn S. at Newmarket in April, prior to her victory in the G1 QIPCO 1000 Guineas S. there on May 1. Second in the French equivalent on May 15, the 'TDN Rising Star'...

Dark Angel's Mangoustine Denies Cachet In the Pouliches

Tony Parker's Infinity Nine Horses was in the limelight at ParisLongchamp on Sunday as the Mikel Delzangles-trained Mangoustine (Fr) (Dark Angel {Ire}) denied Cachet (Ire) (Aclaim {Ire}) the G1 1000 Guineas-G1 Emirates Poule d'Essai des Pouliches double in a frantic finale. Having surrendered her unbeaten record when third in the course-and-distance G3 Prix de la Grotte Apr. 17, last year's G3 Prix Miesque winner was back on track where it mattered under one of the world's most journeyed and accomplished jockeys in Gerald Mossé. Settled behind the leading quartet early...

A Classic Sire Steadily Gathering Aclaim

Anyone who attended the European yearling and breeding stock sales last year won't have failed to have picked up on the heightened appetite for the stock of Time Test (GB). The exploits of his early runners had caught the imagination and backed up by the promise of more to come, demand for his yearlings and foals soared, at one point reaching a high of 400,000gns (paid by SackvilleDonald for a colt from John Foley's Ballyvolane Stud who had been pinhooked for 52,000gns as a foal). Time Test's retirement to the...

Doyle Brings Up The Guineas Double On Cachet
Doyle Brings Up The Guineas Double On Cachet

James Doyle took his buoyant mood from Saturday's G1 QIPCO 2000 Guineas win on Coroebus (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) into Sunday's G1 Qipco 1000 Guineas and got the same result as he steered Highclere Thoroughbred Racing's 16-1 shot Cachet (Ire) (Aclaim {Ire}) to an all-the-way success in the Newmarket Classic. Third behind Inspiral (GB) (Frankel {GB}) in the course-and-distance G1 Fillies' Mile in October, the George Boughey-trained TDN Rising Star had come back to win the seven-furlong G3 Nell Gwyn S. here Apr. 12 and relished her front-running role on her...

All To Play For In The 1000 Guineas

After the decision to avoid the stress of a G1 QIPCO 1000 Guineas examination for Inspiral (GB) (Frankel {GB}), the latest renewal of the Newmarket Classic has become open season for up-and-comers in the miling division. Very few of the 14 left in the race can be safely discounted and with a filly unproven beyond six furlongs at the head of the market, it is fair to say that anything can happen in this one. There were shades of Ravinella (Mr. Prospector) in the way Ballydoyle's number one and 'TDN...

Tenebrism Tops 16 in 1000 Guineas

Undefeated Tenebrism (Caravaggio) is the 11-4 early choice among 16 confirmations for Sunday's Qipco 1000 Guineas at Newmarket.

Trained by Aidan O'Brien, the G1 Cheveley Park S. heroine will attempt to give the trainer his sixth win in the race in seven years. O'Brien may also be represented by maiden winners Toy (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) and Tuesday (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}). Included among Irish-breds who are also possible to run Sunday are Group 3 winner Homeless...
