Tannery completes Dylan Thomas black-type double

Dylan Thomas conformation

Tannery (3f Dylan Thomas-Danse Grecque, by Sadler’s Wells) became Dylan Thomas’s second black-type scorer in 24 hours when winning the G3 Kilboy Estate Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday.

The David Wachman-trained filly had previously won twice in Listed company this year but looked better than ever when taking this nine-furlong contest under Wayne Lordan.

“She is a very tough filly and seems to handle any kind of ground,” Wachman told www.irishracing.com. “She will go a bit further and is a very straightforward filly and has a good pedigree.

“There is a good programme of races here in Ireland for her and she might go for the Blandford Stakes. She could also go for a race in the US in the autumn.”

Lordan added: “She is improving and she enjoyed the ground really well. Usually I drop her in but we ran a bit forward today. She got a bit flat footed when Pat (Smullen) kicked on but once stamina came into play my filly got going and won well at the line.”

Tannery was winning a day after Chutney Flight (3f Dylan Thomas-Karly Flight, by Mansonnien) won the Listed Prix Madame Jean Couterie at Vichy.
