Tally-Ho bred Lingfield winner pushes Cotai Glory into top spot
The winners continue to come thick and fast for Cotai Glory, who was on the mark on Monday as the sire of impressive Lingfield scorer Cotai Beauty.
A £95,000 Goffs UK breeze-up purchase by Blandford Bloodstock, Cotai Beauty showed bags of pace under William Buick to control the 12-runner event and win going away by two and a half lengths. It was only the second run for the filly, who was bred here at Tally-Ho Stud and is trained by James Tate on behalf of Sheikh Juma Dalmook al Maktoum.
"She's quite strong and well made," William Buick told Sky Sports Racing. "She came on for her first run, was able to take them along and responded well. She's very quick, all about speed."
Cotai Beauty becomes the fifth winner out of Petite Boulangere, a daughter of Namid whose earlier foals include She's A Worldie, dam of the Classic-placed Decrypt.
Her win places Cotai Glory at the head of the European first-crop sires list by earnings on approximately £170,000. Overall he is the sire of 12 winners; in addition to Cotai Beauty, they include last week's impressive Group 3 Prix du Bois scorer Atomic Force and the Royal Ascot stakes-placed 2yos Dig Two and Eldrickjones.
