£70,000 Goffs UK Doncaster Breeze-Up purchase Tiger Belle gained the second win of her career when landing the Listed Arqana Irish EBF Marwell Stakes under Ben Coen for owners Shamrock Thoroughbreds in Naas on Wednesday evening last.
Coming here I thought this track was going to be too stiff for her. When you are looking for black-type and these races come up you have to try. She’s going to win no black-type at home.
Ben gave her a super ride. They split in a seven runner field but I think no matter what side you are on, the fastest horses win the races.
Where we go next I don’t know, she is for sale so she will be sold at some stage. She’s black-type now and that’s what matters, our job is done with her.
She’s very fast and she’s tough but she just about gets the five. If you had a very easy fast track for her she’d take some beating. She had the rail there and Ben was very good on her.
I won a Birdcatcher here with a two-year-old a few years back, but this would be my biggest two-year-old winner.”
