Joyeuse just shades victory
Thursday 05 September 2013
Frankel's juvenile half-sister Joyeuse claimed a Listed race victory today as she held on by a neck in the Dick Poole Fillies' Stakes at Salisbury, the 8-11 favourite hard-pressed to thwart the runner-up Dorothy B.
Teddy Grimthorpe, racing manager of winning owner Khalid Abdullah, said: "She was obviously a bit rusty, she'd been off since Royal Ascot and has grown and developed. She probably needed it, but she has still quickened up quite nicely. The Cheveley Park [Stakes] is there if we want to stay at six furlongs and there's the Rockfel if we want to go to seven."
