Shattered Love wins G3 for Yeats

Shattered Love (6m Yeats-Tracker, by Bustino) landed a G3 success for in-form Yeats at Fairyhouse on Saturday. The Gordon Elliott-trained mare, carrying the colours of Gigginstown House Stud, was having her first start since winning a Thurles Listed event in December when lining up in the G3 Coolmore Soldier Of Fortune Mares Novice Hurdle. She was upsides the Willie Mullins-trained Asthuria when that rival fell at the last leaving Shattered Love to win by 13 lengths. “We had a bit of luck on our side, but we know she stays. A step up in trip would be no bother to her,” said Elliott. “I'll have to talk to Eddie and Michael (O’Leary) to decide where she goes next. The mares’ novice race at Cheltenham could be a a bit short for her.”

Bred by Limetree Stud, Shattered Love realised €50,000 as a store.
