It was the battle of the Frankel fillies’ in the Lowther Stakes at York and Queen Kindly powered home to win the Group 2 race. Fair Eva was sent off the the 4 to 11 favourite but Richard was always confident of our chances. Richard didn’t hide his disappointment at Queen Kindly finishing third at Royal Ascot as she’s a filly he’s always liked. The following win at Catterick did her the world of good and she’s grown and matured with every week. She’s a very powerful filly and showed us what she’s made of. Jamie Spencer has ridden her every time and he was towards the back of the field along with the favourite. She was always travelling well but we just needed a gap to open up and thankfully it did. She pulled clear and stayed on impressively to win by three-quarters-of-a-length. The first three home were 5 lengths clear of the rest of the field. Owner Jaber Abdullah was there and he was delighted. He bred Queen Kindly from the mare Lady Of The Desert who won the race in 2009.
Jamie was delighted with her after the race and said ”every time you ride her she’s chunkier and more powerful and she never missed a beat today. She was gutsy and tenacious and very professional. I pitched up at Catterick to ride her twice and a three-hour drive to ride her is a joy!”
The Cheveley Park could be her next target.
