Cue's Folly

Bay Filly
DOB: 20 Apr 2015
Nathaniel x Island Odyssey (Dansili)
Owner: Mrs Janice Quy

Cue's Folly is by Nathaniel who has produced the superstar Enable and whose stock tend to improve with age. Her dam is the multiple winner Island Odyssey, who won over trips between 10f and 12f.

Cue's Folly made her debut over an extended mile at Wolverhampton and she was very green but showed signs of promise and there was encouragement to be built on for the future. She continued to run green during her early educative runs, but the penny has started to drop as she has been given a greater distance of ground to run over. 

She was fourth when stepped up to two miles at Wolverhamton in July 2018, then fifth at the same venue in August over an apparently inadequate one mile and six furlongs. That encouraged us to step her up to two and a quarter miles in a 0-65 handicap at Chepstow, also in August, where she displayed enormous stamina reserves. Held up off the pace, then slightly inconvenienced with traffic trouble, Cue's Folly devoured the ground inside the final furlong to get up for third.  

Finding similar opportunities has been difficult, and Cue's Folly is now down to a rating in the mid-40s, which makes it difficult to avoid elimination in many contests. She has recently been put in foal, and we hope that this genuine filly will find an opening before too long.
