Pretty Pollyanna Retired To Stud

Pretty Pollyanna

The Michael Bell trained filly Pretty Pollyanna has been retired by her handler and connections but will now head to stud where she is set to join up with the superstar that is Frankel to mate.

The Group One winning filly has had a stellar 11 race career with the obvious highlight being her win over in Deauville France as a two year old when she went on to land the Prix Morny under a superb ride by Silvestre De Sousa.

In her racing career she has gone on to win three races, with all of them coming as a two year old where she was arguably at her best as a racehorse with her three year old campaign never really meeting the heights of her debut season.

She started her second racing season off over in Ireland where she put in a great performance which was the best run she produced all season finishing second behind dual 1000 Guineas winner Hermosa.

From there another good performance she put in was a a creditable fourth in the July Cup at Newmarket but, she was a beaten at odds-on in a Listed event on her last outing and that looks to be her final run of her career.

The fillies owners Bill and Tim Gredley have decided to bring her back to their stud in Newmarket before a possible mating with Frankel in 2020.

(Credit At The Races) Bell said: “It’s going to be hard for her to achieve more than she has already, having won a Group Two and a a Group One, so the Gredleys have decided to call it a day.

“They’re owner-breeders and they feel there is probably more to lose than there is to gain at this stage, so they want to wrap her in cotton wool so she can hopefully go on to enjoy a successful second career as a broodmare.

“I believe the plan is to send her to Frankel next year, which is very exciting.

“We’ve actually got Pretty Pollyanna’s half-brother in training, and he looks a nice horse. He’s a two-year-old colt by Nathaniel, and we’re looking forward to getting him on the track in a Newmarket maiden either at the end of this month or early next month.”
