With only a dozen or
so two-year-old races having been run so far this season, our Lucky
Story filly Faye Belle, trained by Derek Shaw, has already got her
opening entry, and looks set to race within days...
When we bought Faye Belle from the Doncaster sales back in
September, we believed she would be a sharp type of 2YO, and so it
has proved, as Derek Shaw has already entered this youngster for her
first race next week.
Faye Belle - ready to run
Nicely bred, and with a decent half
sister who ran in Dubai this winter (rated 78), Faye Belle is likely
to start her racing career at either Windsor on Monday or Beverley
next Thursday. Both races are 2YO only maidens and will be
over the minimum trip of five furlongs.
Derek Shaw has about 15 2YO's at his yard this season, and 'Belle'

reported to be making good progress on the gallops at home, and
we're hoping that she will be competitive right from the start of
There are still some shares left in this filly for her 2013
campaign, and we will be holding our spring visit to Derek's yard
this coming Sunday, just ahead of the filly racing the week after.
It's the start of the flat season - why not get into a 2YO?
