The Worthadd filly OBRIGADA, bred and raced in England by Miss Kirsten Rausing and bought by AllanBloodlines at Tattersalls 2017 Horses in Training Sale for 18,000 guineas, won a local Group 1 in Almaty yesterday for 3 year olds and older – she being 4 – by more than 5 seconds clear of the second.

That second was last year’s Derby winning colt DICHATO by Scat Daddy.

The race distance was 3200 metres. OBRIGADA has won at 1000 metres (a prep race), 1600, 2400 and now this. She will come back in distance for either the President’s Cup or – another local Group 1 on the same day – the Miss Kazakhstan Stakes.

Last year’s champion filly carries on in her own sweet way.
