The focus was very much on fillies at Newmarket on Friday and Irish Thoroughbred Marketing showed their appreciation of the UK market for Irish horses by sponsoring the Group 2 Cherry Hinton Stakes. It was therefore fitting that although the winner Sendmylovetorose was bred in the UK she is trained in Ireland by Andy Oliver. It was the biggest success so far in the burgeoning career of Oliver who is based in County Tyrone and one which demonstrates the considerable training abilities of the qualified veterinary surgeon. The filly got a nice uncomplicated ride from Colm O’Donoghue who commented; “I’m delighted for connections. She’s a lovely filly and has gone from strength to strength. Andy gave me a lot of confidence and said do your own thing. She’s quite light on her feet and could handle better ground too. She’s got the class to do it on that ground and that's the sign of a good filly. She’s still raw and green so there’s more to come.” A light framed filly, Sendmylovetorose had an abortive trip to Royal Ascot following a stalls incident and she showed absolutely no ill-effects of that by winning a Group 3 at the Curragh just over a week later. Her ability to take on another trip to England and a further step up in class on soft ground is great testament not only to her talent but also to her constitution and temperament. Her owner John Gildea only purchased her from her trainer just before her debut at Navan in June so he has experienced a rollercoaster of ownership in a short space of time.
