Nations Pride impressive at Newmarket

Progressive Teofilo colt wins Listed Newmarket Stakes

Nations Pride, a three-year-old colt by Teofilo, won with superiority in the Listed Newmarket Stakes at Newmarket on Friday, 29 April.

Stepping up in class, Nations Pride was settled in second throughout by jockey William Buick before being unleashed in the final two furlongs, where he quickened up to win by an impressive seven lengths in the ten-furlong contest.  Hoo Ya Mal (Territories) finished in second.  Trained by Charlie Appleby, Nations Pride continues to progress having won his last three starts. He holds entries in the G1 Prix du Jockey Club and G1 Grand Prix de Paris.

Owned and bred by Godolphin, Nations Pride is out the Stakes-winning mare Important Time (by Oasis Dream), being out of G1 winner, Satwa Queen, she is a half-sister to Queen of Carthage (by Cape Cross) who produced G1 winner Lucky Vega.  Important Time has a filly foal at foot who is an own-sister to Nations Pride.

Teofilo has now sired 105 Stakes winners to-date, 22 of whom have won at the highest level including two Melbourne Cup winners (Cross Counter and Twilight Payment) and multiple G1 winner Subjectivist, successful in the Ascot Gold Cup last season.
