Blue Bunting Lands Yorkshire Oaks

BLUE BUNTING won a third Group 1 and a first against older horses with a gutsy effort on the Knavesmire to fend off the persistent challenge of the Sir Henry Cecil-trained Vita Nova.

The dual Classic winner was sent off the 11-4 favourite and was subsequently cut into 6-1 second favourite for more Classic glory in the St Leger, where she would face colts for the first time.


The daughter of Dynaformer was settled towards the rear by Frankie Dettori, as her Godolphin stablemate Rumh cut out a steady pace in front under William Buick. Turning for home all the major players fanned out across the track to deliver their challenges with Wonder Of Wonders first to strike - taking things up more than three furlongs out.

This was a great race!! A real duel in the final furlong between English 1000 Guineas and Irish Oaks winner, Blue Bunting. And Henry Cecil's lightly raced 4yr.old daughter of Galileo, Vita Nova. Wonder of Wonders also ran a very respectable 3rd in this race. Vita Nova really went down fighting. I thought she ran an incredible race given that this was her first ever start in G1 company, and only her 6th career start. Godolphin have to be over the moon about how Blue Bunting has performed for the stable this season. I would imagine. Ironic how fate is. Because I really wonder if we would've even seen Blue Bunting in the Epsom, Irish, or Yorkshire Oaks had Godolphin's star 2yr.old filly from 2010, White Moonstone, stayed healthy?
