Snow Fairy to Continue Racing in 2012


Snow Fairy has rapidly emerged as one of the world's leading fillies and one for the ages in terms of value she delivered for her owners. She had been shipped over to Asia with an eye on some of the high profile flat contests as their season reaches its crescendo only to be withdrawn from the Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Vase after winning the Queen Elizabeth II Commemorative Cup.


A tiny injury to her near-fore during a routine workout at Sha Tin last week saw them ship her back to Newmarket but the diagnosis was far from serious and she will remain in training next year as a full mare.

Speaking on his website, conditioner Ed Dunlop declared, “the injury she sustained in Hong Kong will require a fair amount of time to heal, but Mrs Patino has sportingly decided that she is prepared to give her every chance to return to the racecourse next year.”

Snow Fairy is another example of an outstanding female who has risen to the top of her division and is now regularly challenging older males at Group 1 level on virtually all sides of the planet. She has raced at a variety of distances and acquitted herself well amongst the upper echelons of the global thoroughbred order.

2011 was a tricky year for Snow Fairy as she moved over to challenging males on a regular basis. She ended 2010 with a massive double taking the Queen Elizabeth Commemorative Cup and then the Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Cup. Following that she didn't register a victory until she headed back to Kyoto a few weeks back.

She was there-or-thereabouts in virtually every race, missing by a mere half-length to the talented So You Think in the Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown. She also overcame odds of 14/1 to finish a strong third to Danedream in the 2011 Arc De Triomphe.
