Juddmonte’s G1 Irish Oaks and G1 British Champions Fillies & Mares runner-up Bluestocking (GB) (Camelot {GB}–Emulous {GB}, by Dansili {GB}) had failed to get her nose in front since attaining ‘TDN Rising Star‘ status at Salisbury in September 2022, but bounced back from six straight stakes defeats to outshine all four rivals with a dominant display in Thursday’s G2 Al Basti Equiworld Dubai Middleton Fillies’ S. at York.

Positioned in a handy third through the halfway mark of this extended 10-furlong contest, the 5-2 second favourite loomed large racing hard on the steel approaching the quarter-mile pole and powered clear once seizing control with a furlong remaining to easily account for 15-8 chalk Free Wind (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) and ‘TDN Rising StarInfinite Cosmos (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}) by six lengths and a neck.

Pedigree Notes
Bluestocking, the fifth of eight foals, is the leading performer from four scorers out of G1 Matron S. heroine Emulous (GB) (Dansili {GB}), herself a full-sister to G3 Prix Gontaut-Biron victor First Sitting (GB) and Listed Criterium de Vitesse victrix Daring Diva (GB). Daring Diva, in turn, is the dam of three black-type performers headed by G2 Ridgewood Pearl S. and G3 Denny Cordell Lavarack & Lanwades Stud S. victrix Brooch (Empire Maker), herself the dam of GI Haskell S. hero and upgraded GI Kentucky Derby second Mandaloun (Into Mischief). Descendants of her stakes-placed second dam Aspiring Diva (Distant View) also include Group 3-winning GI Canadian International runner-up Alounak (Fr) (Camelot {GB}). The February-foaled homebred bay is a half-sister to the unraced 2-year-old gelding Dissident (GB) (Frankel {GB}) and a yearling filly by Kingman (GB).
