In training

Virgin Snow

Bay Filly
DOB: 12 Mar 2017
Gleneagles x Snow Fairy (Intikhab)
Owner: Anamoine Ltd

Virgin Snow is the second foal of the great Snow Fairy.

The mare needs no introduction, as she was trained by Ed to win the Oaks, Irish Oaks, Irish Champion Stakes, Hong Kong Cup and Japan's QEII Commemorative Cup twice, as well as finishing first past the post in the Gr.1 Prix Jean Romanet. 

Her only produce to race to date was Belle De Neige, who showed little on her only start prior to retirement. There is a great deal of hope that Virgin Snow can outstrip her sibling, however, particularly as she is a member of the first crop of 2016 2,000 Guineas hero Gleneagles.

The son of Galileo was an exceptional two-year-old that trained on to be a top class miler, winning four Gr.1's in total. Interestingly, he raceing record shares a quirky resemblance to Snow Fairy, as he was also disqualified from first place in a Gr.1. Nonetheless, as a son of Galileo from the stallion-making family of Giant's Causeway, expectations are high that he can make a good impact at stud.

Virgin Snow made her debut over seven-furlongs at Doncaster in July, showing up well for a long way before taking a very enouraging fourth. She will improve enormously for the run and hopefully can prove as exciting as her pedigree in time.
