Mr. Greeley 2yo triumphs in G2 at The Curragh


Sunday, August 08, 2010 |
Laughing Lashes was a length the best in the Group 2 Keeneland Debutante S. over the turf at The Curragh on Aug. 8. The 2-year-old daughter of Mr. Greeley, who garnered the first stakes win of her young career, already had a second in the Group 3 Silver Flash S. at this same track on July 15.

The offspring of Mr. Greeley are no strangers to overseas success. His all-time leading earner, Finsceal Beo, was Europe's champion 2-year-old filly of 2006 who won $1,478,232 in her career; and the filly Saoirse Abu is a two-time Group 1 winner in Ireland.

In the seven furlong Debutante, contested over a yielding turf, Laughing Lashes got away well in third. The Racing Post comments note that she made her move two furlongs out, then led and stayed on best under pressure inside final furlong.

Laughing Lashes is owned by McElroy Syndicate, who purchased her for $100,000 at the 2009 Keeneland September yearling sale. With the victory, she is now 1-2-0 in three starts, earning $103,900. She is trained by Fran Berry.

The first week of August has been very good to Mr. Greeley. At the Aug. 2-3 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga yearling sale, he had four horses sell for an average of $247,500, nearly five times his stud fee. The quartet included a colt out of a half-sister to champion Afleet Alex.
