Yesterday, ridden by Michael Kinane and trained by Aidan O’Brien, won the Entenmann’s Irish 1000 Guineas at the Curragh today.
The winner's stable companion L'Ancresse set out to make the running at a steady pace, with Michael Kinane holding Yesterday up on the rails in fourth, with Johnny Murtagh tracking him on the market leader.
Two furlongs out Dimitrova went on, but was immediately pressed by the Aidan O’Brien-trained Yesterday, who soon took control and looked set for a comfortable victory.
Murtagh and Six Perfections suddenly found racing room and mounted a powerful finishing burst, but Yesterday had flown and they failed by a short head to catch her.
Thierry Thulliez had ridden Six Perfections at Newmarket but after the incident-packed Rowley Mile Classic he had been replaced by Murtagh.
