NEWS: Breeders' Cup option for Princess Yaiza
on 10 October 2018
The Gavin Cromwell-trained filly could be set for a trip to the Breeders' Cup

Gavin Cromwell is eyeing a trip to the Breeders’ Cup for Princess Yaiza following her big-race victory in France.

The three-year-old has run some tremendous races in defeat this term, perhaps most notably when third behind Sunday’s Arc runner-up Sea Of Class in a Listed race at Newbury in June.

After being touched off in a listed event at Galway on her penultimate start, Princess Yaiza was stepped up to Group 2 level for the Qatar Prix de Royallieu at ParisLongchamp on Saturday and claimed a determined success in the hands of Andrea Atzeni.

Her trainer Cromwell said: “It was a great day. It was a big ask, running her in a Group 2, so it was great to see her go and win.

“It definitely won’t be her last run of the year. She has an entry in the Italian Oaks, so there’s a small possibility she’ll go there, but I’d say it’s more likely she’ll go to the Breeders’ Cup.

“The Filly And Mare Turf is a mile and three furlongs this year, which will suit her. We’re looking into it. Her owner is American and is keen to go.

“We were delighted with how well she handled the good ground the other day. That opens up more options for us.”
