Sacred Bridge Aimed At Cheveley Park And Breeders Cup Meeting

Sacred Bridge

Ger Lyons unbeaten juvenile Sacred Bridge extended her winning run to four races at the weekend and her handler is now looking to send her into Group One Company in England and America.

The two year old daughter of Bated Breath is a 12/1 shot for the black type event having landed all three of her events to date and if coming over for this race she will be shorter, running for top connections.

Starting off her career at Naas in June he was a smart winner and she then backed it up at Tipperary taking a Listed winner on similar company.

Next time out she stepped forward again to land the expensive Ballyhane Stakes, getting up in the final stages of the six furlong contest.

Placed well by Lyons she was last seen at The Curragh in the Group Three Round Tower Stakes winning by close to four lengths in very taking style.

Now the Group One winning trainer is planning for her to head to the Cheveley Park Stakes at Newmarket and all being well then heading to Del Mar for the Breeders' Cup meeting.

“She literally goes through the motions at home and does what she’s done. Every time I’ve gone to the races I’ve kept thinking ‘is she up to this?’, and every time she’s produced.

“I love training two-year-olds, and it’s for that reason – you don’t know what you’re uncovering. It’s when they hit the ceiling you go on to the next one, but she’s still on the rise.

“Subject to us talking to the (Abdullah) family and everybody being on the same page, that’s (Cheveley Park) where you would go with her.”

Lyons added: “There’s a lot of options open with her, including a trip to the States at the end of the year.

”If she stays in this form why not, that would have to come into the conversation that we’ll be having close to the time.”
