PRINCE DES SABLES was a gutsy winner of the £20,000 BB Foodservice 2-Y-O Series Final at Hamilton Park on Thursday night.
Completing a hat-trick of course and distance wins, Kevin Ryan’s ultra-consistent filly battled right to the line to beat Lightning Attack by a neck.
Winning jockey Shane Gray said: “She travelled so well that I probably got there a little too soon. But she’s battled and her mother Hopes N Dreams was very successful here.
“She tough and it’s like riding a little colt. She doesn’t seem to mind the ground and has enough speed to even drop back to five furlongs.”
The other feature race, the EBF Stallions Flower Of Scotland Fillies’ Handicap, saw a classy performance from William Haggas-trained Beauty Filly.
Danny Tudhope, who rode the 5/2 second favourite, said: “She was a little bit keen but otherwise gave me a great feel and a nice filly. This trip of six furlongs suits her perfectly as she’s been running at seven furlongs and a mile. I spoke to Mr Haggas this morning and he was very positive about her chances.”
