The grey daughter of Dubawi has been placed in seven Group 1 races before finally gaining two deserved wins at the highest level in France this year.
She finally won at the highest level in the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud. She prevailed by a short neck and a short head in a gripping finish but a win’s a win and nobody can say she did not merit her day in the sun.
Then, next time out, Coronet struck in the Darley Prix Jean Romanet at Deauville.
She spent much of 2017 in the shadow of Enable, her outstanding stablemate. Her best effort was when keeping on gamely to be a five-length runner-up to her in the Darley Yorkshire Oaks at York.
She looked a potential William Hill St Leger candidate that day and went on to finish fifth to Capri in the Doncaster Classic before finishing a fine third to Hydrangea in the Fillies & Mares contest on QIPCO Champions Day at Ascot.
Coronet had previously got up close home to land the Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot and had clearly not been at her best when a well-beaten fifth behind Enable in the Investec Oaks.
Her 2018 campaign began with a fluent victory in the Group 2 Betfred Middleton Stakes at York, where she showed herself to be equally effective over a mile and a quarter. Next time she came close to a first Group 1 triumph – going down by a nose to Waldgeist in the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud.
Coronet has since gained three more Group 1 placings. She was a distant third behind Poet’s Word and Crystal Ocean in the QIPCO-sponsored King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot, and then beat all bar Sea Of Class in the Darley Yorkshire Oaks.
She signed off by splitting Magical and Lah Ti Dar when second in the Fillies & Mares at Ascot.
