In 2020, Robson Aguiar recommended a couple of horses to clients he had in the UK just as the season was preparing for a delayed start in June. The first was a son of Prince of Lir who was to be named The Lir Jet. He won on debut for Michael Bell less than 2 weeks after arriving in the country and went on to win at Royal Ascot and finish 2nd in the Group 1 Phoenix Stake at the Curragh. The second, Star of Emaraaty won the Sweet Solera Stake a Group 3 at Newmarket and went on to finish 5th in the Group 2 May Hill Stakes after changing hands for a huge six figure sum.
Robson and Nick have known each other for several years and often travel together when attending overseas sales. Robson has recommended this Galileo Gold filly to Nick as the first horse Nick should purchase from him based on what he has seen to date at home from his string.
Nick sees every filly that is presented for sale at the yearling sales and this filly was a horse Nick liked alot but he failed it on it's confirmation. Looking at it now, Robson has done a very good job with it and it has improved considerably.
Nick Bradley Racing have a couple of Galileo Gold fillies and to date the reports on them have been very positive to date. That bodes well for this filly, and again gives us confidence to purchase this filly.
Robson is very keen on this filly and it was one of a handful of fillies that Robson felt were his best fillies at this stage. Robson is confident that she will have no problem winning a Maiden/Novice in April and then make up in to a Stakes filly thereafter. Robson also knows that Nick is taking him on his word on this filly and if this filly fails to deliver then it is very unlikely Nick will buy horses from him in the future.
George Boughey will train this filly. Nick and George have teamed up with great success since the summer of 2020 with both Mystery Angel and Silent Queen winning twice since being bought cheaply. Mystery Angel has Stakes races ahead of her at Saint Cloud and Dubai in March and Silent Queen heads to a Listed race at Lingfield at the weekend and is being trained towards the All Weather Finals Day at Lingfield in early April.
Robson has retained a significant share in this filly.
