Black Type Aim For Gleneagles Filly After Smart Success
So I Told You (4f Gleneagles - Nocturne, by Rock Of Gibraltar) continued on an upward curve on Saturday when recording her third win of the season in the Irish EBF Fillies’ Race at Gowran Park.
Ridden to lead by Hugh Horgan, Joseph O’Brien’s charge was pushed along two furlongs from home and was ridden inside the final furlong. Digging deep, she kept on well to beat the favourite by a length.
Speaking after the race, assistant trainer Brendan Powell said, “It was a tough, genuine performance from So I Told You. She stayed on the whole way and you'd be very disappointed if she didn't get some black type after that.”
Owned by the Annus Mirabilis Syndicate, So I Told You previously won in England in the colours of breeder Flaxman Stables. From the first crop of Gleneagles, she is out of a half-sister to Group 1 winner Nymphea (Dylan Thomas), Group 3 winner Navaro Girl and Listed winner Nazbanou (High Chaparral).
