Gypsy Woman

Gypsy Woman only finished fifth in the end behind Never Ending Story in the two-year-old fillies’ seven-furlong maiden at The Curragh on Friday, but she did well in the circumstances. Drawn wide in stall 18, she was keener than ideal for most of the race up on the outside of runners, but she moved up nicely to join the front rank on the run to the two-furlong marker. She travelled really nicely at that point, and she actually ran on well on the near side to finish fifth, just three lengths behind the winner.

It was a really nice racecourse debut from Ger Lyons’ filly. A full-sister to Adeb, who won a maiden over five furlongs, and a half-sister to Seen The Lyte, who won seven times over five and six furlongs, she was nicely supported in the market before Friday’s race. She could progress considerably for this experience, and it is significant that her trainer thought enough of her to give her an entry in the Moyglare Stud Stakes.
