Fictional Account (IRE), one of only four horses trained by Vincent Ward claimed a notable scalp when beating Fame And Glory in the Listed Irish Field St Leger Trial at The Curragh. The Moyglare Stud bred daughter of Stravinsky, took the lead early in the straight and, though edging right in the closing stages, hung on under pressure to beat Fame And Glory by a neck. Also the winner of the Listed Fenwolf Stakes at Ascot last year, this was her sixth win from 21 starts and is a credit to her trainer who commented; “I only have four in training and is it wonderful to be able to win a race like this. We are lucky to have her and she is a fantastic, unbelievable mare. We might look at the (Irish) St Ledger now but everything is ground depend and in fairness to the Curragh they have the ground perfect today.” Fictional Account was bought at Goffs November Sale three years ago for €11,500 by Michael McHugh as a potential broodmare. She is now worth several multiples of this. Her win is also a further boost to her Rock Of Gibraltar half brother who is catalogued as lot 321 in Tattersalls Ireland’s Yearling Sale on 20 – 21 September.
