Qatar Racing’s Duplication (2c Requinto-Primeshade Promise, by Opening Verse) won a competitive maiden at Dundalk on Friday evening to bring more success for Requinto.
The Joseph O’Brien-trained colt, a €165,000 Gorsebridge breeze-up purchase, showed great resilience to see off a dozen rivals to claim the prize.
“It’s nice to have a winner in those colours, and he’s the only one we have for them,” said O’Brien. “There is a winners-of-one here in the next few weeks and that is an option.”
Requinto was also on the mark earlier in the week when Richard Fahey sent out Six Strings (2c Requinto-Island Music, by Mujahid) to win a Newcastle maiden.
