Confident ride – classy win

The 3 year old filly ADORADA (Alado-Our Princess by Western Winter), having been off the track for a minor muscle tweak, built on the form of her debut run today. 

Drawn badly on debut, she nevertheless nearly won first time out, being beaten a mill-second or two in a photo finish.  Today, also drawn badly, she was taken to the back by MJ Byleveld and ridden very confidently.  The longer run in at Kenilworth now in operation was to her advantage as she came from last to first outside the field to win by a fairly cosy three quarters of a length.  Trainer Vaughan Marshall had hoped for a bold showing and was proven as correct as one could possibly be. 

ADORADA is by the Lanwades stallion ALADO and was bred (and is raced) in The Alado Project managed by Allan Bloodlines.  Her dam OUR PRINCESS was acquired by Allan for the Project since when her first four foals – all fillies – have won. 

ADORADA like her twice winning sister DOMINA was foaled and raised at Hemel ‘n Aarde Stud where ALADO stands.  More is hoped for from this smart looking filly.
