Corazon's G3 Prix d'Arenberg Win A Stakes First For Markaz

Syndicate supremo Nick Bradley and George Boughey hooked up to secure the trainer's first pattern-race triumph with Oscula (Ire) (Galileo Gold {GB}) in last month's G3 Prix Six Perfections at Deauville and the burgeoning axis repeated the dose as their 2-year-old filly Corazon (Ire) (Markaz {Ire}) battled to a career high in Thursday's G3 Prix d'Arenberg over the straight five furlongs at ParisLongchamp. She had earlier registered a July 30 debut fourth tackling five furlongs at Worlverhampton, graduating in an Aug. 10 novice test over the same distance at Lingfield...

Galileo Gold's Oscula Makes All in the Six Perfections

Fresh off a fourth in Newmarket's G2 Duchess of Cambridge S. last month, Nick Bradley Racing's 2-year-old filly Oscula (Ire) (Galileo Gold {GB}) stepped forward to register a pillar-to-post victory in Tuesday's G3 Prix Six Perfections Sky Sports Racing at Deauville. The April-foaled bay had previously snagged two of her first three starts, including Epsom's June 4 Woodcote S., and hit the board in the June 18 G3 Albany S. at Royal Ascot. Sharply into stride and seizing immediate control of this seven-furlong test, the 43-5 chance was largely untroubled...

Boughey Full Steam Ahead For Ascot

It is hard to ignore George Boughey at the moment. In only his second full season with a training licence, the 29-year-old is seventh in the British trainers' list by number of winners on 44 for the season. Most impressive of all is his strike-rate of 28%. Of trainers to have had more than 100 runners, only Charlie Appleby ranks higher on 30%, for his 36 winners. But Boughey's most pleasing moment of the season so far came not from a winner but through the superbly gritty run of his...

Snowfall, Rainfall And An Oaks Day To Savour

EPSOM, UK—It was an Oaks that delivered everything. An emphatic winner, bred in the purple, racing in the purple, representing a trio of the sport's most powerful owners for whom Epsom's famous winner's circle is almost a home from home.  It was also a record-breaking winning margin by a filly who reminded us just what a loss Deep Impact (Jpn) was, not just to Japan but to breeders worldwide, when he died at the age of 17 in 2019. Next month, a handful of his final small crop of yearlings...

Mystery Angel Supplemented For Oaks

George Boughey, one of the rising stars of the Newmarket training ranks, is set to be represented by a first Classic runner after listed Pretty Polly S. winner Mystery Angel (Ire) (Kodi Bear {Ire}) was supplemented for Friday's G1 Cazoo Oaks at a cost of £22,500. Owned by the Nick Bradley Racing syndicate, which has already had a Classic place-getter this season in Fev Rover (Ire) (Gutaifan {Ire}), Mystery Angel was last seen running fourth to Snowfall (Jpn) (Deep Impact {Jpn}) in the G3 Tattersalls Musidora S. at York. The...

Aclaim's First Winner Earns Rising Star Stripes At Newmarket

Progeny of The National Stud's freshman sire Aclaim (Ire) (Acclamation {GB}) had yet to post a breakthrough score, but that statistic was cast aside as Highclere Thoroughbred Racing's Cachet (Ire) powered to a taking debut success over six furlongs in Saturday's Betway British EBF Fillies' Novice S. at Newmarket. Breaking sharply to occupy a forward slot in second through the initial fractions, the 4-1 chance cruised to the front hard on the steel approaching the final quarter mile and powered ever clear, under minimal urging, up the hill to easily...

Boughey Quick To Make His Mark In Dream Job

When working on a plan for a new business 12 months ago, few would have set out contingencies for a global pandemic. Fortunately for George Boughey, who this month celebrates his first anniversary as a Newmarket trainer, the shutdown of racing between mid-March and the beginning of June brought only a brief hiatus to the promising start made from when he saddled his first winner on Aug. 13. That footnote in history belongs to Three C's (Ire), a Kodiac (GB) gelding who has won twice in the year before joining...
