Coolmore Brochure 2017
The Classics The Oaks Stakes was first run on Friday, 14 May 1779 and was won by the Lord Derby-owned Bridget. Well over 200 years later, the best three-year-old fillies still gather at Epsom and in 2016 the first four home were all sired by Coolmore stallions. At the Curragh they went one better when Seventh Heaven led home a 1-2-3-4-5. In other classic news, Galileo ’s brilliant son The Gurkha ran away with the French 2,000 Guineas, Zoffany ’s son Knife Edge landed the German equivalent and Minding , ballydoyle and Alice Springs ran 1-2-3 in the 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket. Another classic season!
