1000 Guineas - 2006 Result

Speciosa, trained in the Fens, by Pam Sly made all the running to win the 1,000 Guineas in 2006.

The filly bought for just over £30k proved too good for the more fancied horses, beating Confidential Lady into second with Nasheej third.

Speciosa first announced her Guineas potential by winning the well known 1000 Guineas trial, the Nell Gwynn Stakes, but winning the Guineas as well looked like a big ask but she got stronger as the race went on and came home a surprise but not a shock winner, she was 10/1 in the 1000 Guineas betting.

Jockey, Michael Fenton set a sensible early pace, and always had her travelling sweetly. She seemed to gather momentum at the two furlong marker, while those around her wilted. Confidential Lady did make an effort to catch her, bur Speciosa proved more than special and held on comfortably to win by nearly 3 lengths.

  • 1 Speciosa M Fenton 10-1
  • 2 Confidential Lady S Sanders 12-1
  • 3 Nasheej R L Moore 16-1
