SENSATIONAL QUIET REFLECTION SET FOR ASCOT RETURN
Dual Group 1 winner this season, Quiet Reflection, will now head straight for Ascot’s QIPCO British Champions Day on October 15th.
After storming to success in the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot earlier this summer, the Karl Burke filly made it two Group 1’s this season with an impressive turn of foot on soft ground at Haydock to win the Sprint Cup on Saturday.
The QIPCO British Champions Day Sprint Stakes is next up for the three-year-old who will rest until that Saturday 15th October date.
“All being well she’ll go to Ascot for the Qipco British Champions Sprint, then if she’s safe and sound after that she’ll be rested and come back into training next year,” Burke told the Racing Post.
“She has that sales entry only in case something untoward happens.
“She’ll have a quiet week of walking, with a few canters, so we can keep pumping feed into her. She lost seven kilos at Haydock, which is similar to Royal Ascot. She’ll soon put that back on, then we can pick things up gently as we prepare her for Ascot.
“She’s a cracking filly with a fantastic temperament, but there have been one or two wear and tear issues with her feet this year and we’ve been lucky to have the specialist help of Chris Grant’s brother Andy, with his glues and fillers, alongside our regular farriers.”
Quiet Reflection could face rivals such as Meccas Angel, Limato and Twilight Son on the best flat racing day of the year.
