Debutante date for Sacred

Debutante date for Sacred

Sacred Aspect is set to step up in distance and grade following her victory in the Listed Tipperary Stakes last Saturday.

Trainer Ken Condon will target his promising two-year-old filly at the Group Two Friarstown Stud Debutante Stakes over seven furlongs at the Curragh on August 11.

“We were very pleased with her and she came out of it in good shape. We’ll probably run her in the Debutante Stakes next,” said the Curragh handler.

“It fits in well as it’s four weeks away and the seven furlongs should be fine for her.

“Her last race was over five and the further she went, the better she went. She won her maiden over six, so seven on nice ground should be OK for her.

“She’ll have to improve, we know that, but we’re happy with her and that’s where she’s going to go next.”
