French sprinter/miler, Miss Liberty, is rapidly emerging as Statue of Liberty’s most exciting runner in Europe, adding another stakes event to her tally on 26 July.
Sent out favourite for the Listed Prix de Bagatelle at Maisons-laffitte, after a wiin at Deauville earlier in the month, Miss Liberty was untroubled in scoring by two lengths.
Although Google’s translation of the Paris Courses race report leaves a little to be desired, you get the point: Well placed in the standby position, Miss Liberty (Maxime Guyon) received a very good course. His (her?) jockey was able to run when (s)he tried to adjust the facilitator, who would then be overwhelmed(?) by Director for second place.
Pia Brandt (Miss Liberty’s trainer) told the microphone(?): “Miss Liberty was a great race. It was the shift in the last 200m.”
Maxime Guyon (jockey) added: “We had a great race. She was very relaxed. It has become steadily. I hope she can go higher. It deserves because it gives all. There are steps, but what it does, it should be able to win a Group (race).”
What we don’t have a problem translating though is that Miss Liberty is a class filly with five wins and two placings – including victory in the Prix la Fleche-LR as a 2YO – from only 11 outings.
Out of the Spinning World mare, Miss America, Miss Liberty hails from the family of Mr Prospector stallion, Fappiano, sire of Kentucky Derby winner Unbridled.
