Get Ahead (GB)
2019 filly by Showcasing (GB) ex Suelita (GB) (Dutch Art (GB))
This powerful filly, by the speedy stallion Showcasing, is from one of the most exciting families around; her dam, Suelita, has had six runners to date, all of whom have been winners and five of whom have been Black Type winners! Get Ahead’s full brother, Alkumait, won the Group 2 Mill Reef and is now at stud, and last season’s star two year old Chaldean (winner of the Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes) is their half-brother. Suelita’s filly foal by Kingman sold for 1 million Guineas at this year’s Tattersalls foal sales!
Get Ahead was a very fast two year old who trained on well last year to bolt up in a competitive handicap at Glorious Goodwood whilst she was also in the money at Listed level on numerous other occasions. Trainer Clive Cox was hopeful that she would improve at 4 and she has done just that, winning the Listed Cecil Frail Stakes in May and finishing second in a Group 2 in France just over a week later. After a respectable performance in the Group 1 Nunthorpe at York, she lined up in the Group 1 Flying Five Stakes at the Curragh where she was only narrowly beaten into second, giving us all a huge thrill and her already excellent pedigree yet another boost. She is a very fast and very tough filly who we are very lucky to have to race in our silks!
