Classic heroine and MG1SW Billesdon Brook (GB) (Champs Elysees GB-Coplow GB, by Manduro Ger) will visit Darley stallion Dubawi (Ire), Racing Post reported on Sunday. Retired after her eighth-place finish in defense of her G1 Kingdom of Bahrain Sun Chariot S. in October, the Richard Hannon trainee was named an English highweight at seven to 9 ½ furlongs in 2019.
“Billesdon Brook is going to Dubawi, I know it’s expensive but I think she deserves it, so I’m just waiting for her to be ready to go off to Newmarket,” owner Jeanette McCreery told Racing Post of the 2018 G1 1000 Guineas heroine. “I’d always thought I’d send her to Dubawi, I think he’s a wonderful stallion so I thought ‘why not’, she deserves the best. She hurt herself in the last race she ran in, it was very wet in the Sun Chariot. She’s been home, had box rest, now she’s out in the paddock and is fine, so we’ve something to look forward to in a couple of years anyway.”
A winner of seven of her 26 starts with 10 more placed runs and earnings of $982,087, the chestnut also scored in a trio of Group 3s.
