Midday Pulls Off Nassau Hat Trick

MIDDAY became the first filly to win the Nassau Stakes three times with a popular success for Sir Henry Cecil on the final day of Glorious Goodwood.

Cecil was winning the race for a record eighth time as Midday posted her sixth win at the highest level and took her career earnings past the £2 million mark as she saw off globetrotter Snow Fairy. The winner's stablemate Principal Role finished third.

Midday was sent off the 6-4 favourite despite having her colours lowered in each of her last two starts, most recently by Misty For Me at the Curragh, and she rewarded her supporters with a polished performance to give Cecil and Queally their fifth success each in the inaugural Qipco British Champions Series.

Midday beats Snow Fairy for the second time in her career. This time over 10f to claim her third straight G1 Nassau Stakes. Midday also beat Snow Fairy last season at York over 12f in the G1 Yorkshire Oaks. A race that it's very likely that we'll see Midday, Snow Fairy, and Crystal Capella all line for next month at York.
