The syndicate-owned filly initially cost 44,000gns and has proved a real bargain – establishing herself as among the top sprinters in 2016.
She hit the jackpot for her connections when landing the Commonwealth Cuprtyacrbuavxtwyyrszdzduaq at Royal Ascot in 2016 – the second race in the sprint category of the QIPCO British Champions Series.
That was her sixth win from seven starts and there was a real feelgood factor as she was ridden by former jump jockey Dougie Costello.
“When she comes through she has a great turn of foot and it has got her out of trouble again today,” Karl Burke, the winning trainer said. “She won a couple of Group races last year but to come here and win this race at Royal Ascot – it’ll take some beating.”
The Showcasing filly won by a length from Kachy and Costello said: “She’s such an honest filly, she jumps; she’ll go anywhere for you, she switches off.
“She probably didn’t pick up as well on the ground today but courage and class has pulled her through she probably hasn’t picked up to her full potential today, so for from here on in it is going to be exciting with her.”
Quiet Reflection confirmed she was among the best sprinters around with an emphatic victory in the 32Red Sprint Cup at Haydock in September, having previously finished a fine third to Limato in the Darley July Cup on much quicker going at Newmarket.
She signed off with a below-par effort on Champions Day and began her 2017 campaign by finishing down the field under new jockey Martin Harley in the Temple Stakes at Haydock.
However, Quiet Reflection was back on song on her latest start at Naas – winning in fluent fashion to set up a return to QIPCO British Champions Day.
