Twilight Son’s progeny enjoyed a golden spell on the racecourse over the Bank Holiday weekend, highlighted by the runaway success of TWILIGHT SPINNER in the Gr.3 Athasi Stakes at The Curragh for Joseph O’Brien and Shane Crosse. Purchased by owner Scott C. Heider after bolting up in the Listed Cecil Frail Stakes at Haydock last term, the imposing Twilight Spinner was making just her sixth career start and is set to have her sights raised further following this comfortable success.
TOIMY SON got the ball rolling at Longchamp on Sunday with a smart turn of foot to mow down Txope in the Listed Prix du Pont Neuf for Yann Barberot in the colours of the three-year-old colt’s part-owner Gerard Augustin-Normand. Toimy Son may now be pointed towards the Gr.3 Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot.
The winners kept flowing for Twilight Son yesterday as his son GET IT landed the feature race at Bath for Clive Cox and Andrew L Cohen, whist SCOTCH MISTRESS stayed on powerfully to win the feature race of the afternoon up at Beverley for David O’Meara and Empire State Racing Partnership. Get It was a smart juvenile and it was good to see him getting his career back on track after a couple of issues held back his progress last term. The filly Scotch Mistress appears to be on a sharp upward curve and she should have no problem adding to her tally again soon. Also over the weekend, TWILIGHT CALLS deserves an honourable mention for finishing a close fifth in the Gr.3 Palace House Stakes at Newmarket, having been left isolated on the flank at a crucial point in the contest. Nevertheless, he shaped with plenty of promise and will be making his presence felt in many more Pattern races with any luck.
