More precious black-type for Nathaniel’s first-crop


Nathaniel’s first-crop continue to excel on the racecourse with Precious Ramotswe winning the Gr.3 Al Basti Equiworld Dubai Bronte Cup Fillies’ Stakes at York today.

The lightly raced four-year-old filly, who has now won four of her five starts, made all to to win this Group race by half a length for trainer John Gosden.

Bred by Hascombe and Valiant Studs and raced by their owner Anthony Oppenheimer, Precious Ramotswe is a half-sister to the Listed-placed This Is Day and Vanity Rules out of the Stakes winning mare Miss Pinkerton (Danehill), a daughter of the Gr.1 Coronation Stakes winner Rebecca Sharp (Machiavellian).

Nathaniel has now sired four Group winners from his first-crop plus 11 Stakes horses, including 2017 Horse of the Year Enable.
