What the Nation is saying about Sky Lantern...

No dispute this time!! Sky Lantern uses that late blistering turn of foot to run down Integral to win the G1 Sun Chariot Stakes at Newmarket, her 3rd G1 win this season. Sir Michael Stoute's Integral finished in 2nd with a much improved effort from her Beverly D. Stakes flop by Duntle to finish to 3rd.

  • Euro Trash · @paul, I do not think they want to tackle the QEII at this time. But many European trainers prefer to send their horses to Asia now. Great purses and top class competition. She is a very nice filly, but the QEII would be a tall order unless she really moves forward from this race. · 199 days ago ·

Sky Lantern has gotten the go ahead from her connections to be stepped up in trip to 10f and is a confirmed runner for the G1 Nassau Stakes at Goodwood on August 3rd.
The connections of Sky Lantern have appealed the result of the G1 Falmouth Stakes at Newarket-July on Friday. A lengthy stewards enquiry took place at the end of the race because the winner, Elusive Kate, veared left and carried Sky Lantern across the track with her but she held on by a neck. The stewards ultimately left the places unaltered saying that jockey William Buick aboard Elusive Kate had his whip in the correct hand. Sky Lantern jockey, Richard Hughes, said they were intially going to just take the loss on the chin but they had gotten so many calls & tweets urging them to appeal the stewards decision that they have decided to reverse field and go ahead with the appeal.

  • Euro Trash · I believe that they have nothing to lose by appealing the decision as opinion is running strongly for each side. I feel that Sky Lantern's jockey could have been a little headier with his ride as Elusive Kate has shown this tendency before. Hughes should have anticipated and put Sky Lantern in a different path. · 274 days ago ·

  • jonquil · Well, I believe they've been saying that the whip hit Sky Lantern on the face and that it was actually the prolonged whipping movement in front of her face intimidating her that caused her to slow enough to allow Elusive Kate the win, I think? It's still difficult to tell if this affected the outcome or not, but I kind of have to agree with Euro Trash on this. · 273 days ago ·

Elusive Kate returned to the scene of some of her greatest efforts for a wire-to-wire success in the Group 1 Falmouth Stakes on Friday at Newmarket, but it wasn't without controversy as the filly drifted all the way across the track - resulting in a lengthy stewards inquiry before the result was con...Read More

  • jonquil · Not surprised in the least. Kate's always been a good filly, but on her best she can really bring it. Sky Lantern is still very impressive and I don't think this is a hit to her reputation at all. Both are really great to watch at their best. :) · 277 days ago ·

Even though she won the G1 Moyglare Stud Stakes at the Curragh in Ireland last September as a 2yo, connections of G1 English 1000 Guineas winner, Sky Lantern, have opted to pass on running her in the G1 Irish 1000 Guineas at the Curragh this Sunday and have instead decided to supplement her into the G1 Epsom Oaks field in early June.
Patience is a virtue, so they say, yet after twenty-five years of waiting, even the calmest of successful athletes would begin to long for that ultimate success amongst their elite rivals. Having been crowned Champion Jockey for the first time last season, all that was missing from Richard Hughes' r...Read More
Terrific turn of foot late by Sky Lantern to nail Just The Judge by 3/4 lengths in the English 1000 Guineas. The only problem I have with this filly is it always seems to be either feast of famine with her. She either runs a mighty race like today and looks a legit G1 filly or she runs a disappointing race like she did at last year's Breeders Cup.
Six months after the fanfare departure of Frankel, Sir Henry Cecil looks to have found a new exciting prospect to enjoy further summer successes with in the shape of three year old filly, Hot Snap, who stormed to victory in the Group 3 Nell Gwyn Stakes at Newmarket.Read More
