Alpha Centauri set to stay in training
on 14 August 2018
The Jessica Harrington-trained grey is a four-time Group 1 heroine in 2018 and one the brightest stars of the season

JESSICA Harrington has confirmed that Alpha Centuari is highly likely to stay in training as a four-year-old.

The Mastercraftsman filly is the undoubted star of the 2018 flat season following breathtaking wins in four Group 1 races, the most recent of which came in the Prix Jacques le Marois at Deauville on Sunday.

Alpha Centuari's next port of call is the Coolmore Fastnet Rock Matron Stakes at Leopardstown on September 15th, the first day of the Longines Irish Champions Weekend.

Speaking ahead of the launch of Irish Champions Weekend, Harrington said: "It looks like she is going to stay in training next season, which is great, but there's a lot of water to pass under the bridge before then, starting with the Matron Stakes at Leopardstown next month.

"The last three times she's run she's gone twice to England and once to France so it's much easier to go 40 minutes up the road to Leopardstown, and I think that's what will fit into her program."

Reflecting upon her Marois triumph, Harrington added: "The race itself was amazing. She was very very good and she did what's written on the label and she does it every time."
