Pour Moi mare shines on debut
There were some well-connected mares in Taunton’s bumper on Thursday but there was only going to be one winner from a long way out, Miss Heritage (4f Pour Moi-Haretha, by Alhaarth).
The daughter of Pour Moi (pictured), trained by David Elsworth and the mount of Jack Quinlan, came home eight lengths clear of the field.
The Racing Post commented: “MISS HERITAGE moved smoothly into the race turning for home and had little difficulty in quickening away once given her head. She has more of a Flat pedigree, being a 34,000 euros half-sister to a 7f-1m winner out of an unraced half-sister to Musidora/Nassau winner Zahrat Dubai, so it will be interesting to see how she is campaigned. Wherever she goes, she looks an interesting prospect.”
Pour Moi was also on the mark on Wednesday evening at Dundalk when the Joseph O’Brien-trained newcomer Ming (3g Pour Moi-Persian Filly, by Persian Bold) won a maiden by over three lengths.
