Cotai Glory has hit the ground running 2021, and nowhere was that better advertised than on Friday when 3yos Singsong Lady and Chimgan won within hours of each other.
Chimgan, bred by Mountarmstrong Stud, set the ball rolling with a victory in Bahrain. The colt won on debut for Clive Cox last season and it was good to see him back to winning ways.
At Dundalk, Singsong Lady struck in the 7f maiden in the manner of a progressive filly, showing a bright turn of foot to win by three-quarters of a length.
"She is a lovely big scopey filly and loved that surface," said trainer Gavin Cromwell. "I'm not sure where I'll go with her next but it's nice to win a maiden with her. I've always thought she'd like that surface. We'll have a look a see what there is here for her and if not we might put her away. She probably wants nice ground."
Bred by Nafferty Stud, Singsong Lady is a half-sister to ten-time winner Singeur, a son of Chineur who was also Listed-placed, and out of Singitta, a relation to the smart 2yo Nevisian Lad.
Europe's leading first-crop sire Cotai Glory stands for €8,500.
