Lady Macapa wins the Prix du Petit Couvert (G3)

10th September 2017

Off the track since finishing third to Magical Memory in the Hackwood Stakes at Newbury, LADY MACAPA was never too far from the pace under Luke Morris.  As Kyllang Rock dropped away, the main challenge came from Pascal Bary's Gold Vibe, with David O'Meara's Fashion Queen also flashing home, but Lady Macapa hung on to claim the Group Three prize.

Cox said: "It was a wonderful result and that was very special.  She is a filly that had promising form and was placed in a Group Three at Newbury last time.  She enjoyed the soft ground there today and Luke Morris gave her a super ride.  I'm thrilled for John Law and Michael Johnson as it's their first venture into horse racing and I am pleased it was a success. I think with conditions today, it made stamina important."

"With regard to being a sprinter, I think her ability to win over six helped her in those conditions.  She is not in the Abbaye. We were hoping to win a Listed race, but she has jumped a gear there. From a breeding point of view it is job done and I could not be more encouraged by that performance."It's great to be in great form in Group races."
