3rd-Curragh, €20,000, Mdn, 6-5, 3yo/up, 12fT, 2:35.75, gd.
GRATEFUL (IRE) (f, 3, Galileo {Ire}–Tepin {GISW-Can, G1SW-Eng, MGISW-US, $4,437,918}, by Bernstein), the third foal out of the six-times top-level-winning dual champion grass mare, had not been seen since finishing ninth in this track’s seven-furlong conditions race in August in which A Lilac Rolla (Ire) (Harry Angel {Ire}) and Opera Singer (Justify) were first and second. Racing in mid-pack early, the 13-2 shot stayed on strongly to reel in stablemate Mother Nature (Ire) (Justify) in the final strides and prevail by a short head. “She has an unbelievable pedigree. She got a little setback last year and we didn’t get to run her,” Aidan O’Brien said. “She just took a bit of time to come and Wayne said there is a lot to come from her. We’ll let her step up and progress away and he said she’d be very happy to step back in trip.” Tepin, whose 2-year-old colt Delacroix (Ire) is by Dubawi (Ire), is kin to the four-times graded-stakes scorer Vyjack (Into Mischief). Lifetime Record: 2-1-0-0, $13,055.
O-Mrs J Magnier/M Tabor/D Smith/Westerberg; B-Tepin Syndicate (IRE); T-Aidan O’Brien.
