Liquid Amber team planning Classic entries following Tara triumph

Wed 30 Aug 2017

Liquid Amber is set to be given entries in both the English and Irish 1000 Guineas following her impressive victory in the Group Three Flame Of Tara Irish EBF Stakes.

The Willie McCreery-trained filly produced a telling turn of foot to storm past Aidan O'Brien's odds-on favourite Ballet Shoes and romp home by five lengths.

The victory was even more meritorious as she had only made her racecourse debut at the Curragh eight days earlier.

"She won very nicely and it's well done to Willie McCreery and his team," said Alan Cooper, racing manager to owners the Niarchos family.

"She's a nice filly in the making. She's still unfurnished, so hopefully she can go forward and we can have some fun with her next year.

"The entries are next week for the Irish 1,000 Guineas and she'll be entered for that. The English 1000 Guineas entries are not until early next year. I'd have thought we'll give her entries in both. It's crystal-ball gazing at this stage.

"Having had two races in quick succession, we'll just give it a thought whether to give her another run this year, or not. She's a Group winner now and we'll go from there."
