What the Horse Racing Nation is saying about Giofra...

Giofra will be bred to Frankel in 2014
Giofra, winner of the 2012 G1 Falmouth Stakes, has been retired after finishing last of 12 in the G1 Prix Rothschild on July 28th. Loved this filly and she ran with great credit on some big stages finishing 2nd in the G1 Prix Ganay and G1 Hong Kong Cup and 3rd in the G1 Dubai Duty Free.
Making her first appearance since a disappointing eighth-placed finish in the Breeders Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf, Elusive Kate did everything but win today at Newmarket.Read More
  • ILuvTurfRacing · Very impressed with this filly, indeed. Giofra's still quite lightly raced to be a 4yr.old filly, but her win in the G1 Falmouth Stakes runs her record to 6-4-1-0 lifetime now. Her only 2 losses having been a 5th place finish in the first start of her career last season and a 2nd place finish behind Cirrus Des Aigles in the G1 Prix Ganay back in April. I also thought Elusive Kate ran a hell of a race in the Falmouth Stakes, too. Not having been on the racetrack since she ran in the G2 BC Juvenile Fillies Turf back in November. · 725 days ago ·

  • ILuvTurfRacing · For those who've yet to see this filly race, you're in for a treat once you do see her. Giofra's still a quite lightly raced filly to be midway through her 4yr.old season. But she's quickly putting together a strong resume'. She was a beaten 5th in the very first race of her career. But then finished the 2011 season with a conditions race win at Compiegne and a listed stakes win at Longchamp. She began the 2012 season by beating the boys in the G2 Prix D' Harcourt at Longchamp, followed by a 2nd place finish behind Cirrus Des Aigles in the G1 Prix Ganay which was only the second time she'd ever been beaten. But she had the likes of Reliable Man, Wigmore Hall, and Saga Dream in behind her in the Prix Ganay at Longchamp. This was a stellar field of some of the best 3 and 3+yr.old fillies and mares racing in Europe right now that Giofra beat on Friday in the G1 Falmouth Stakes on Newmarket's July Course. Running her record to 6-4-1-0 for her career to date. I was also very impressed with the gritty effort by Elusive Kate. I would imagine that trainer John Gosden would have to be very pleased with that effort from his star filly against such a tough, competitive field. Having been off of the racetrack herself since she ran in the G2 BC Juvenile Fillies' Turf back in November. The rest of the 2012 season also looks quite promising for Elusive Kate based on what I saw out of her today, IMO. · 725 days ago ·

It was the other French filly who took the Falmouth today! In a dramatic finish over Elusive Kate and Siyouma!
CIRRUS DES AIGLES (Corine Barande-Barbe/Olivier Peslier) landed his third Group 1 in impressive fashion in the Ganay, taking the lead early and slowly pulling away from his rivals to beat Giofra and Reliable Man with contempt. Peslier took things up in the back straight and set a steady gallop on th...Read More
  • ILuvTurfRacing · Cirrus Des Aiigles just didn't win the G1 Prix Ganay. He left a very classy filly that was previously unbeaten in stakes company in Giofra absolutely for dead by some 8 lengths. This horse just keeps getting better and better with age!! I've always thought it was too bad that CDA is gelded, because he'd be a force to be reckoned with if he was eligible to run in the Arc, IMO. · 801 days ago ·

  • footlick · she is classy but not a proven gr 1. Reliable Man was working well for this but may not have been 100%. But, Cirrus des Aigles is a class act! · 801 days ago ·
