Quiet Reflection 3rd in July Cup
Quiet Reflection ran in the Group 1 July Cup on Saturday where Dougie Costello was aboard the Karl Burke trained 3 year old filly.
Heading into the race, there were slight concerns that the ground may be a bit quick but Karl was happy to let her take her chance in this prestigious race.
She was drawn in stall 9 for the 18th runner event and from the stalls Dougie took up a lovely position in the middle of the pack. As the race began to unfold, QR was travelling really well and she started to pass rivals heading into the latter stages of the race. At the furlong mark, the Henry Candy trained Limato shot a couple clear and wasn’t for catching, QR battled on showed a tremendous attitude and was just beaten into 3rd place, a fantastic effort from the filly, showing she is the best 6f 3-y-0 horse in the country on ground less than ideal.
She will have a mini holiday now and will then prepare for the 6f Haydock Sprint Cup on Sept 3rd.
