A half-sister to our talented runner Ayrad, Dawn Of Hope was purchased by Tony Nerses for €220,000 and didn’t let the family down with a series of bold showings at stakes level.
Successful second time out at Ascot for Roger Varian, Dawn Of Hope returned at three to land a competitive conditions race at the same track before ending the season with a deserved victory in the Listed Prix Petite Etoile at Deauville.
The daughter of Mastercraftsman remained in training at four, a decision which was vindicated when she was third in the Group 3 Snow Fairy Stakes and twice Listed-placed.
Dawn Of Hope’s first foal is a striking yearling filly by Decorated Knight. She is currently in foal to Kingman and visits Invincible Spirit in 2020.
