Queen Mary Aim For Daughter Of Requinto
Daughter In Law (2f Requinto - Shizao, by Alzao) may now contest the Queen Mary Stakes at Royal Ascot after running out an easy winner of her maiden at the Curragh Guineas Festival.
Having shown great promise when finishing third on her two previous starts, the Kieran Cotter-trained filly once again raced over the minimum distance. Nathan Crosse employed a change of tactics and made all of the running, extending his advantage approaching the final furlong and stayed on to score by three and a half lengths.
The winning trainer later commented, “She's improved with every run and her form is stacking up all the time. She just has blistering speed and on the quick ground today it was a matter of getting her out, let her run and point and shoot. She's done the job very well. A fast five is what she wants, she has blinding speed and kept going.” On future plans, he added, “Back a month ago we were saying we were heading to the Queen Mary. It might be jumping things a bit too much but it's a possibility. We'll think about Ascot and there's a future for her anyway.”
Owned by Mrs John Murphy, Daughter In Law was bred by SH Bloodstock out of the black-type mare Shizao.
