Footstepsinthesand Mare Flies To Group 2 Success
Pevensey Bay (6m Footstepsinthesand - Pachelbelle, by Anabaa) finished with a flourish to capture the Group 2 Cape Verdi at Meydan on Friday evening.
Jon and Julia Aisbitt’s homebred made a promising return to action last month when finishing second in a Listed contest at Deauville and was given a similarly patient ride on Friday. Switched wide in the straight by Olivier Peslier, the bay ran on strongly to lead close home and won by three parts of a length.
The Hiroo Shimizu-trained mare becomes a 36th individual Group/Graded winner by Footstepsinthesand.
