The Curragh, Turf, 1000m

25 March 2012

Dawn Approach (Ire) attracted the predictable amount of support in the market as the first representative of his sensational sire New Approach (by Galileo) and started at even-money in this opener to the European Flat turf season.

Quickly away and soon racing towards the fore, the blaze-faced chestnut worked his way to the lead with 1 1/2 furlongs remaining and asserted to score by 1 3/4 lengths from Canary Row (Ire) (Holy Roman Emperor), who just edged out Ballydoyle’s well-supported Forester (Ire) (Danehill Dancer) for second by a head.

Jockey Kevin Manning commented, “He’s done it well and was very professional. He’s got pace, but he’s by no means an ideal five-furlong horse, and you won’t see the best of him until he steps up in trip.”

Trainer Jim Bolger, who crafted the career of sire New Approach, was also holding court afterwards. “He is a very laid-back colt, a bit different to his old man,” the master of Coolcullen told Irish Racing Online. “He will improve a lot when he goes up in trip. Hopefully, we will be back here in September with him for the G1 National Stakes.”
