Shadn (No Nay Never) winning the Listed Rose Bowl Stakes at Newbury

Another 2YO Stakes Winner For Red Hot No Nay Never

Shadn (2f No Nay Never - Amethyst, by Sadler’s Wells) provided her red hot sire with his thirteenth stakes winner and third 2YO stakes winner of 2019 when landing the Listed Irish Thoroughbred Marketing Rose Bowl Stakes at Newbury this afternoon.

The bay was an impressive maiden winner on debut over 6 furlongs at Kempton last month, which she won by 3¼ lengths in good style, before heading to Royal Ascot a fortnight later for the Gr.2 Queen Mary Stakes where she put up a creditable performance despite showing signs of greenness.

Back over 6 furlongs, Shadn produced a gutsy performance to beat the colts winning a shade cosily in the end. Trained by Andrew Balding for Alrabban Racing, she will now be targeted at the Gr.3 Dick Poole Stakes at Salisbury in early September.

Shadn was bred by Barronstown Stud out of Amethyst, an impressive winner of the Irish 1,000 Guineas Trial and runner-up in the main event. Amethyst is also a full-sister to top-class miler King Of Kings (Sadler’s Wells) and Group 3 Athasi Stakes winner Lucky (Sadler’s Wells).
