Twilight Gleaming put on a dominating display in Deauville when claiming the listed Prix de la Vallee d’Auge at Deauville for trainer Wesley Ward and jockey Frankie Dettori. Presented with the challenge of fending off the persistent Tom Dascombe-trained Delmona, the 2yo daughter of National Defense fought it out to the line to win by a neck.
In a post-race interview Dettori stated that “She fought really well and I expect her to be better on faster ground, she’s very honest”.
The filly is on track to target The Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint in November at Del Mar Racecourse. Congratulations to all connections.
