Highland Reel Colt Rallies For Maiden Win At Newbury

It’s All About You (2c Highland Reel - Three Moons, by Montjeu) dug dep to run out a game winner of Friday’s novice stakes at Newbury.

A promising third on debut, Harry and Roger Charlton’s charge appeared to enjoy more prominent tactics in the mile contest and was ridden to make virtually all by James Doyle. Ridden when challenged approaching the final furlong, he was headed inside the final furlong, but battled back bravely to regain the advantage close home. Digging deep, he led by a head on the line, as Goodfella (Footstepsinthesand) was forced to settle for runners-up honours.

It’s All About You is owned by Paul and Clare Rooney and was bred by Paget Bloodstock and Eadling Farm. He hails from the second crop of globetrotting superstar Highland Reel, as does recent Grade 3 scorer Comanche Country (Highland Reel). His first crop is led by Group 2 heroine Atamisque (Highland Reel) and Stakes performer Didn’thavemuchtodo (Highland Reel).
