Pure Nature’s Dundalk ‘three-peat’

Pure Nature’s ‘three-peat’

A flight to Dubai should be in the future of the progressive Pure Nature after the Phoenix Thoroughbreds owned filly won for the third time in her last five starts.

Ado McGuinness’s patient approach with the daughter of Dansili has paid off in spades in recent week’s. Her latest six-length win should see her qualify for listed and group options at the World Cup Carnival at Meydan having started her winning run rated in the sixties.

Ridden by Chris Hayes, Pure Nature sat towards the rear of the field in the early stages of the mile and a half handicap. Taking closer order as the field turned for home, she was still travelling powerfully in entering the straight and was soon powering clear to take the spoils.

Stephen Thorne, assistant to winning trainer Ado McGuinness, said:

“She was very good there. I told Chris just to take his time as she was ridden quite cold on her previous two wins here.

“The last day here they went no gallop at all and she got caught down the rail. She needs a truly run race to be seen at her best as she’s a stamina laden filly.

“She’ll only improve, Chris said she was still a bit green.

“She has a lot of options now. We nominated her for Dubai and she could be on a plane out there.

“She was 82 today and I think 90 is the minimum for the handicaps out there so she should qualify now.

“We’re over the moon and delighted for the owner’s Phoenix Thoroughbreds as well.”
