Hermosa rolled to a 4 length triumph in the Grade 1 Tattersalls Irish 1000 Guineas at the Curragh for Aidan O’Brien. The daughter of Galileo was ridden by Ryan Moore.
Trainer Aidan O’Brien said:
“There was a change of plan after the Newmarket Guineas. We were going to aim for the Oaks, but the lads decided to run her here today instead. We’re delighted with her. We knew she had improved since Newmarket, and we think there will be more improvement to come. The Prix de Diane will be next for her. She ran at Chantilly last year when finishing second against the colts in the Criterium-International (G1). She might stay further than a mile and a quarter later in the season.”
Jockey Ryan Moore Moore said:
“She was always in control and didn’t really look like getting beat at any stage. She is very strong and has done exceptionally well from 2 to 3. She gave me a feel of a top-class filly, and, all being well, I think she could have a really good year and could go further than a mile.”
