Frankel Watch: Old Glory Heads to Dundalk for O'Brien

Venue: Dundalk

Date: 5th October 2018

Horse: Old Glory, trained by Aidan O'Brien 

7f iCopy Irish EBF Star Appeal Stakes (Listed Race) (2yo)

Interesting to see how Old Glory goes on this second start. This British-bred son of Frankel is out of a mare who raced just four times for Freddie Head in France. This March foal cost a whopping 1,600,000 euros at the yearling sales. Old Glory made his debut at Naas when a 6/4f. 

Race comment detailed: 

''Chased leaders, travelled well into 2nd 2f out, pressed leader approaching final furlong, led final 150yds and pushed clear under hands and heels closing stages (op 7/4 tchd 15/8)''

Looks a tough horse to beat and with a bright future.
