Cotai Glory doubles up!

Updated: Jul 15

Another smart debut winner came the way of Cotai Glory on Wednesday when Pearl Glory made a winning debut for Kevin Philippart de Foy at Lingfield.


And just hours later in Italy, the stallion fired in another winner when Ask My Glory scored at Naples.


Pearl Glory ran out a brave winner of her race, squeezing through a gap under Daniel Muscutt before outbattling the runner-up Outside World.


"I was really impressed with that filly's attitude today," Muscutt told Sky Sports Racing. "She put her head down when it mattered, she hit the line well and should get a bit further as she gets a bit stronger."


Pearl Glory was bred by Ronan Ely out of Oatmeal, a Dalakhani relation to Irish Oaks heroine Pure Grain and top Japanese performer Fine Grain.


Ask My Glory was bred by Thomas Jones out of Rafakova, a daughter of Holy Roman Emperor who is related to American Grade 2 winner Shaniko.


With Wednesday's action in the books, Cotai Glory boasts 18 first-crop winners. The leading European first-crop sire by number of winners, the son of Exceed And Excel also leads the way by prize-money thanks to the earners of approximately £210,000.
