A win for our home bred

We were delighted to see our own MAY GIRL and Jim Crowley romp to victory yesterday in the 2pm Maiden Fillies Stakes race over the minimum distance, breaking her maiden on the third time of trying.  She is out of a dam we bred, owned and raced called INSTRUCTRESS who herself was out of a mare we bred, owned and raced called TWO STEP the family goes back generations of breeding here at Bottisham Heath Stud.  We also have a yearling out of INSTRUCTRESS in the paddock who is currently in the paddock in preparation for racing next year.  So another exciting prospect we hope.

Another positive from the win yesterday was that it was a Plus 10 Bonus race… meaning she won any extra £10,000.  This is because we made her eligible as a foal, then a yearling, then as the owner, three stages which cost about £300 per stage. So certainly a good investment to make.

Watch this space on the next entries for this lovely young filly.
