Listed strike for Dawn Of Hope at Deauville
The lovely Dawn Of Hope gained a deserved stakes win on Tuesday when successful in the Prix Petite Etoile at Deauville.
Partnered by Maxime Guyon, the filly challenged a furlong out and drew clear for a length score over Endless Summer.
It was the third win for Dawn Of Hope, who looked a classy filly in the making for Roger Varian when taking her seasonal debut at Ascot. Given a break after that, she recently ran an encouraging fourth in Gillies Fillies’ Stakes at Doncaster.
Dawn Of Hope is half-sister to our classy 5yo Ayrad, winner of his season’s Gala Stakes at Sandown.
Bred by Gerrardstown House Stud, she is also a half-sister to triple winners But Beautiful and Big Mago and out of Sweet Firebird, a Group 3-placed Sadler’s Wells half-sister to top sprinter Stravinsky.
Further back, it is the family of another top sprinter in Dowsing.
Dawn Of Hope was purchased by Tony Nerses out of the Platinum Bloodstock consignment for €220,000 at the 2014 Goffs Orby Sale.
