Chamomile broke her duck under a confident ride by Pat Cosgrave yesterday evening at Wolverhampton. The well bred daughter of Teofilo was having just her fourth start and stepped up to nine and half furlongs for the first time. With the win under her belt the daughter of Teofilo becomes a useful broodmare prospect as a full sister to stakes placed Festival Fare. Chamomile is out of the winning Dubawi mare Al Joza who is a half sister to the Group One Racing Post Trophy winner Dilshaan.
Congratulations to owners Gary and Lesley Middlebrook and thanks to the hard work of all the team, especially Andy Williams who rides her out and Jan Kasecky who looks after her in the yard.
Chamomile is a big scopey filly who has taken time to come to hand and should continue to develop with more racing. She is open to further progress over further as she continues to strengthen. We will probably stick to around a mile and quarter as she learns to race.
Chamomile was purchased as the Tattersalls Book 1 yearling where Claire and Daniel are currently searching for future prospects to add to the string. It’s the highest quality yearling sale in the world and although competition is fierce to find for horses there are lovely horses to be found with a lot of hard work.
