Promising Rock Of Gibraltar Filly Goes One Better
Agile (3f Rock Of Gibraltar - Biche, by Gentlewave) led home a 1-2-3 for Coolmore sires in Friday’s mile and a half fillies’ maiden at Clairefontaine.
The Jean-Marie Beguigne-trained filly finished a promising second on debut behind the impressive Lots Of Magic (Churchill) at Saint-Cloud in May and was reunited with Marie Velon on her second start. Making all of the running, Naji Pharaon’s homebred kept on well to deny Cheek To Cheek (Holy Roman Emperor) by a neck, while Force De L’Aube (Churchill) took third.
Agile becomes the fourth winner out of Pharaon’s homebred mare Biche, who has a two-year-old colt named Baron Black (Zoffany) yet to run.
