Coolmore juvenile Easy Mover (Ire) (Wootton Bassett {GB}–Rain Goddess {Ire}, by Galileo {Ire}), whose Group 3-winning dam ran second in both G1 Irish Oaks and G1 Pretty Polly S., opened Friday’s card at Fairyhouse with a narrow success in the six-furlong Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden. The Aidan O’Brien trainee, who is a half-sister to last year’s ill-fated Listed Dee S. winner San Antonio (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}), prevailed by a head from Ado McGuinness representative Canto Della Terra (Ire) (Kodiac {GB}).

EASY MOVER (IRE) (f, 2, Wootton Bassett {GB}–Rain Goddess {Ire} {GSW & MG1SP-Ire, SP-Eng, $275,631}, by Galileo {Ire}) broke well and tracked the leaders in fourth through the initial fractions of this debut. Straightening for home in third, the 16-5 chance came under pressure to launch her bid approaching the quarter-mile marker and was ridden out to deny Canto Della Terra (Ire) (Kodiac {GB}) by a head in a bobbing finish. “She’s a filly that’s been going nicely at home and we thought we’d get her out,” revealed Ballydoyle’s Chris Armstrong. “We were just a little bit worried coming here first time as the six around here is quite sharp and they can get a bit lost. Wayne [Lordan] gave her a lovely introduction, he kept her together as long as he could and got her there.  She’s a filly that’s going to appreciate going up to seven [furlongs] or even a stiff six. She’s now put herself in the mix for [Royal] Ascot, for the six [-furlong G3 Albany S.], or we could keep her for the [G3] Airlie Stud Stakes at the Curragh on [Irish] Derby weekend. She’s a lovely filly physically, typical of the Wootton Bassetts. She’s a very good mover, she has a good attitude and does everything right. She’s one to look forward to.” Easy Mover is the fourth of five foals and third scorer from as many runners out of G3 Snow Fairy S. victrix and G1 Irish Oaks and G1 Pretty Polly S. runner-up Rain Goddess (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), herself a full-sister to the Group 3-placed duo Queenstown (Ire) and Realism (Ire). The April-foaled homebred bay’s third dam is G1 1000 Guineas heroine Virginia Waters (Kingmambo). Easy Mover is a half-sister to Listed Dee S. victor San Antonio (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) and a yearling filly by No Nay Never. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $11,761.
