Roly Poly

Roly Poly captured her first Group 1 stakes with an authoritative front-end victory in the Tattersalls Falmouth Stake at Newmarket July 14 and then made it two in row by defeating her elders in the Prix Rothschild the end of the month at Deauville in France. She now looks to make her second Breeders’ Cup appearance after competing in the Juvenile Fillies Turf in 2016.

The three-year-old daughter of War Front had been the bridesmaid in three prior Group 1 events. Out of the powerful Irish stable of Adian O'Brien, Roly Poly ran second to stablemate Winter in both the Tattersalls One Thousand Guineas at The Curragh and the Coronation Stakes at Ascot.

“This filly is improving with every run and has a lot of heart,” said rider Ryan Moore after the Rothschild victory. “She always fights hard and gives her best. She had to do that today, as it was a very good race and maybe that’s her best performance to date.”

Owned by Michael Tabor, Derrick Smith and Susan Magnier, the Kentucky-bred is following in the footsteps of her mother, Misty For Me, who won multiple Group 1s and was rated highweight two-year-old filly in both Ireland and France, and highweight three-year-old filly in her home country. O'Brien also trained Misty For Me.
