Chantal Regalado-Gonzalez tasted Classic glory this year with Qualify (Fastnet Rock) in the Gr.1 English Oaks and trainer Joe Murphy has high hopes that first-crop Pour Moi filly Only Mine (2f Pour Moi-Truly Mine, by Rock Of Gibraltar) could provide the owner with another Gr.1 star.
Second in the Gr.3 Grangecon Stud Stakes at the Curragh at just her second raceday start, Truly Mine backed up six days later to capture a six-furlong maiden at Cork last week by a length and a half from Diamond Fields (Fastnet Rock) and she now looks set to step up to Gr.1 company.
“There was fierce talk about Diamond Fields and I do believe it, as I’d say she is very good, but this filly (Only Mine) is exceptional,” Murphy told irishracing.com. “She cruised and did that very easily and I promise you she is very good. She’ll run in the Gr.2 Debutante Stakes, Gr.1 Moyglare Stud Stakes and is also in the Gr.1 Cheveley Park Stakes. There are exciting times ahead with her.”
From the first 2YO crop of Pour Moi (Montjeu), Only Mine is the first winner for the sensational English Derby winner who shuttled from Coolmore, Ireland to Windsor Park Stud, Cambridge in 2012 and 2013.
Pour Moi’s first New Zealand conceived progeny are now 2YO’s and will commence racing in the 2015/16 racing season. His second crop yearlings will be offered at the 2016 New Zealand Bloodstock Yearling Sales series at Karaka next January.
