Footstepsinthesand Juvenile Scores On Debut
Tracking the leader under Tom Marquand, the chestnut filly asserted before the final furlong and was driven out to score by two and a half lengths. It was a slight case of deja vu for connections, with Evans having also trained her dam for owner/breeder E.A.R. Morgans to win a five furlong maiden at Windsor in April of her two-year-old career.
Her sire, Footstepsinthesand, was of course, a talented two-year-old, with his unbeaten career kickstarted by a winning debut and Group 3 juvenile success. He was retired after his only three-year-old start; a comprehensive victory in the 2,000 Guineas at Newmarket.
Choisir is showing great promise as a broodmare sire, with his daughters producing the likes of Prince Of Wales’s Stakes winner My Dream Boat, multiple Group 1 winner Winter (Galileo) and Queen Elizabeth II Stakes heroine Persuasive.
