Profitable enjoys fruitful Friday on the racecourse

Two new winners for first-season sire take his tally to 11

Profitable is making a great impression with his first crop of runners, headed by G2 Queen Mary heroine Quick Suzy, and on Friday, 23 July he added not one, but two winners to his record as Head Mistress and Glengarra were both victorious at Down Royal.

Head Mistress was making her racecourse debut and the Ger Lyons-trained filly was settled in third before being ridden along two furlongs out. Despite having to switch out with a furlong left to run, Head Mistress quickened impressively close to home to win by a length and a half.

Head Mistress was bred by Brucetown Farms Limited and is out of the multiple winner Rag And Bone (Street Cry), a half-sister to Group winner Raymi Coya and a granddaughter of G1 winner Try Something New.

Later on the same card, Glengarra opened his account in the seven-furlong maiden.

Soon in front, Glengarra was asked to quicken two furlongs out and outbattled his rivals to win by a nose.

Bred by Michael Downey and Roalso Ltd, Glengarra is out of the Peintre Celebre mare Puzzled, herself a half-sister to Group winner Tabdeed and a daughter of Irish 1,000 Guineas winner Classic Park.

Also on Friday, Ribchester's son Flaming Rib added another victory to his CV, defying top weight to win the six-furlong nursery at Thirsk.
