Throwback Wednesday Race Of The Day

Alpha Centauri

A forgotten filly who was a superstar back in 2018 was Alpha Centauri for female trainer Jessica Harrington and we believe the five year ld deserves to get some recognition.

Having been a horse that looked moderately good as a two year old, winning twice at Naas on her first two starts and second at Royal Ascot, the things she went on to do as a three year old were unprecedented.

She went on to land four Group Ones on the bounce starting at the Curragh in the 1000 Guineas, then at Royal Ascot in the Coronation Cup.

She went on to finish her run of black type wins in France at Deauville but before that won the Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket in breathtaking fashion and we have looked back at that race today.
