Europe's top fillies to contest Moyglare Stud Stakes, Sunday

Curragh-LogoTHE Group One Moyglare Stud Stakes takes centre stage at the Curragh next Sunday and the prestigious seven furlong fillies contest has attracted an entry of 7 including the unbeaten Tapestry, which was supplemented to the race at a cost of 22,500 euro.
She certainly has the pedigree to land Sunday’s prize as a daughter of Rumplestiltskin who landed this race for the stable in 2005. Aidan O’Brien also won this race with Sequoyah (2000), Quarter Moon (2001), Necklace (2003), Misty For Me (2010) and Maybe (2013).
Kiyoshi, winner of the Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot and Queen Mary Stakes winner Rizeena will head a strong British trained challenge.

The home trained team will be led by the Aidan O’Brien trained pair of Tapestry, recent winner of the Friarstown Stud Debutante Stakes and Group 3 race winner Wonderfully, while Carla Bianca, who runs in the ownership of big race sponsors Moyglare Stud, will represent trainer Dermot Weld in the Group 1 contest.
