“If she’s not – as a result of it is late within the yr for a filly – if she gave us indicators she wasn’t at her greatest, then that may do and subsequent yr we might attempt to practice her in the direction of the Arc de Triomphe if we may.

“She undoubtedly stays in coaching. Miss Kirsten Rausing may be very lucky, as a result of she has obtained so lots of the household at stud.

“Whereas this one is able to including lustre to the household, it’s higher off profitable races, and the others can get on with the breeding.”
