Bocca Baciata triumphs in Salsabil
18 Apr 2015 18:06
Bocca Baciata looked a useful filly in the making as she took the feature Irish Stallion Farms EBF Salsabil Stakes at Navan.
-
Winner of a maiden at the same track on her final start as a juvenile, Jessie Harrington's charge was sent off the 5-2 joint-favourite for the Listed contest and travelled supremely well into contention as Fran Berry brought her up from the rear.
-
Pleascach hit the front briefly, but Bocca Baciata was clearly going best and she put the race to bed when urged into the lead going to the furlong pole, lengthening away to score by a length and a half, with market rival Diamondsandrubies third.
-
Harrington said: "She's been pleasing me at home this spring. It's amazing she did as much as a two-year-old as she did.
-
"She may come back in trip for the Irish Guineas, as she's not a slow filly. Fran said she was getting a little bit tired in the last 50 yards but she was entitled to on her first run of the year.
-
"She seems to go on any ground, and is a lovely filly."
