Throwback Race For Monday - 24/05/21


Today we are looking back at last years performance in the Group One Oaks at Epsom, with this years renewal now not far away at all and Love for Aidan O'Brien winning the event in very taking style.

Love was always destined to be a smart horse and at juvenile level proved that when finishing third on her final two year old start in the Group One bet365 Fillies Mile, but this season she has transformed into a world beater.

She made her seasonal debut in the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket and beat a superb field of runners by over four lengths to solidify her credentials for the season.

From there O'Brien decided to step her up in trip for the Epsom Oaks and she revelled in the extra distance, beating a sound field by a devastating nine lengths.

It was one of the best performances seen by a horse in the race for sometime and with that in mind we believe it is worth reliving today, with thus year's resumption less than two weeks away.

After that win she didn't stop there as the Yorkshire Oaks was another test for the three year old and again she passed with flying colours, not seeing a rival all the way round and going clear towards the end of the race.
