Awesome Fairy a Deauville wonder
Sunday 19 August 2012
Snow Fairy made a triumphant return to the track with a game win over Izzi Top in the Darley Prix Jean Romanet at Deauville.
Ed Dunlop's globetrotting mare, sidelined since suffering an injury in Japan last November, was held up towards the rear by Ryan Moore and made her bid in the straight along with the John Gosden-trained Izzi Top.
These two got close together before fighting out the finish, but it was Snow Fairy who came out on top, with Izzi Top second, Galikova in third and Sir Henry Cecil's Timepiece fourth.
Moore has ridden Snow Fairy six times and has now won six Group Ones.
Dunlop tweeted: "The brilliant Snow Fairy does it again! Fantastic performance winning the Prix Jean Romanet at Deauville under Ryan Moore."
