Connections consider Group options for Be My Gal
Last Updated: 05/08/14 1:21pm
The Curragh could come calling for Be My Gal after she secured an accomplished Group Three success in France last Thursday.
Roger Charlton's sparingly campaigned filly impressively overcame a strong home contingent to take the Prix de Psyche at Deauville by a length and a half.
The three-year-old daughter of Galileo may now remain at that grade for the Dance Design Fillies Stakes over a furlong shorter at the Curragh on August 31.
A third visit to France for the Group Two Prix de la Nonette back at Deauville on August 19 is not out of the question, either.
Owner-breeder John Deer said: "It was the second time she'd run in a Group Three - she had a bit of bad luck the first time at Chantilly, when she was third - so we were hoping she'd run well.
"She's a big filly who is lightly raced so you'd think she'd improve for it.
"She's in at the Curragh, which is an option, and there's also a race at Deauville that we are thinking about.
"Looking at her pedigree, she's out of quite a fast family so I'd personally be inclined to drop her in trip.
"Then again, Frankie Dettori seemed to think she'd get a mile and a half at Deauville, so that's a nice problem to have."
