LINDA Shanahan and Diane Nagle are among the owners of the Group 1 winning two-year-old filly Cloth Of Cloud, successful in the South African Nursery at Turffontein at the weekend. The daughter of Captain Al is unbeaten in three starts and her wins also include the Group 3 Pretty Polly Stakes.

Her victories have now earned connections more than a third of her yearling purchase price at the 2015 CTS Cape Premier Yearling Sale when she was bought by her now co-owners through Blandford Bloodstock for R2,200,000 (about €130,000). This pales into insignificance however when compared to her value now as a racemare and a potential world-class broodmare.
