First-season sire Profitable sired his second Stakes winner on Friday, 13 August when his daughter Head Mistress came with a storming late run to win the Listed Curragh Stakes. A debut winner last month at Down Royal, the Ger Lyons-trained filly needed all of the five furlongs to collar the long-time leader Loveday near the line by half-a-length.
Bred by Brucetown Farms and John Brady, Head Mistress is a daughter of the winning Street Cry mare Rag And Bone, who hails from the family of Group-winning juvenile Tactical. Rag And Bone also has a filly foal by Territories, and has been covered again by Profitable this season.
Profitable sits second in the European first-season sire's table with 16 winners, second only to Cotai Glory and ahead of Ardad, Caravaggio, Aclaim, Churchill and Galileo Gold. He is also the sire of Royal Ascot G2 winner Quick Suzy, who is rated the best juvenile filly in Europe.
