Sardinia Sunset (Gutaifan) wins the Listed Marygate Stakes at York for Roger Varian and Amo Racing Ltd.
Having finished an excellent fourth in the Queen Mary at Royal Ascot last month, she had easily the best form in the book and her class ultimately came to the fore once finding daylight from 2f out. She put the race to bed readily here and a step up in to Group company looks to be in the offing for this talented filly.
After the race rider Jason Watson said “She’s still green, it was only her third run, and I think this flat track has suited her. She could potentially get six furlongs, she relaxed quite well with me there. We changed how we’ve been riding her, we gave her a chance in behind a few today and got them to do the donkey work and she’s finished off well.”
Sardinia Sunset was purchased for £95,000 at the 2019 Goffs UK Premier Yearling Sale.
