Lover's Gait

Bay Filly
DOB: 23 Apr 2017
Gleneagles x Liberally (Statue Of Liberty)
Owner: S R Hope & S W Barrow

This April-foaled filly is by the exciting young sire Gleneagles, out of the Gr.3 placed Liberally.

Unraced at two and initially trained by Brian Meehan, the dam won handicaps at a mile and a mile and a quarter at three and four in the UK. She was then exported to the US where she finished third in the Gr.3 Hillsborough Stakes over nine furlongs, and fourth in the Grade-3 La Prevoyante Handicap over a mile and a half. She has produced one winner from three foals to date.

As well as being a proven broodmare and multiple winner, Liberally also boasts a very strong pedigree. She is a half-sister to Speciosa, who famously won the 1,000 Guineas for Pam Sly and Micky Fenton in 2006, whilst the next generation of the family features the outstanding multiple Gr.1 winning mare Pride and her Gr.2 winning and Gr.1 placed son One Foot In Heaven.

This youngster is not the only Gleneagles yearling we have in the yard, and his first crop are awaited with great expectation next year. The multiple Gr.1 winner and close relative of super-sire Giant’s Causeway has made waves in the sales ring this year, so it is exciting to contemplate what  his progeny might achieve on the track in 2019.
