It’s a GREEN day for Bermuda Princess

Today we introduced Bermuda Racing’s homebred Bermuda Princess, who had her first day at the races with a debut run over 5f at Nottingham.

Trained by William Haggas (who also trained her dam Queen Of Bermuda), the two-year-old filly is a daughter of Juddmonte Farms’ Classic winner and sire Kingman, so naturally by a ‘King’ and out of a ‘Queen’, she is a Bermuda ‘Princess’!

Having shown all the right signs at home and doing well in her homework, Bermuda Princess behaved incredibly well leading up to the race and loaded into the stalls like a dream. She broke well, however being in the worst draw of 1, it meant she was on the outside of the field. A tough ask for a young, inexperienced horse and her greenness inevitably lead her to become detached from her competitors as she drifted right. It was then a difficult task to engage the filly back within the field and at this point Bermuda Princess had let the excitement get the better of her, throwing in a few leaps here and there, all the while showing off her potential as she was able to keep up with the field when doing so. Valuable racecourse experience was gained today for Bermuda Princess who came out of the race very well. Jockey Cieran Fallon was impressed with the speed Bermuda Princess showed and is already looking forward to getting her back out again. Where she is in great fitness, we will be looking to hit the track again very soon.

Simon Scupham gives his post-race analysis:

“GREEN, in capital letters is the best way to describe Bermuda Princess’s first run at Nottingham today. She looked great, behaved impeccably and broke well. Unfortunately, drawn wide she broke away from the field and was totally disengaged from then on, fly leaping and jumping every ridge including the finish line. As a result she had no race at all so we will reload and fire again in the near future. She is a talented filly who ran one of the fastest times at the Doncaster Breeze Ups so we are looking forward to seeing her develop.”
