Chiringuita and Briardale
Chiringuita ran a solid race to finish 4th in the hotly contested Listed EBFStallions.com ‘Eternal Stakes’ at Carlisle on Wednesday over 7f. After breaking well the filly took up a good position in midfield. The race was run at a strong pace and turning for home she had every chance but couldn’t quite get going quick enough to catch the top rated filly Opal Tiara.
On Thursday at Newcastle, Briardale ran a very good race only just losing out to the fancied Suitor. PJ looked to win the hard way from pillar to post and after looking the winner for much of the way home, was caught inside the final furlong. It looked as though a combination of the strong early pace and being in front for so long had taken its toll and Briardale didn’t quite have the energy to fight off Ellisons’ charge close home.
