Qatar Racing Limited’s AFRAID OF NOTHING adds 3rd win to tally at Chelmsford

Trained by Ralph Beckett for Qatar Racing, the Qatar Racing Limited-owned AFRAID OF NOTHING (GB) (Charm Spirit x Lady Dragon) gave an impressive performance to win the British EBF Fillies’ handicap on the all-weather track at Chelmsford, UK, on Wednesday 4 Jul evening. A dual winner at 2, the bay filly had finished second on her seasonal bow three weeks ago and made short work of her opposition the 7f run for three-year-olds and older horses rated 0-90. The three-year-old filly broke smartly and was straight up on the lead where she set a good pace. She was relaxed out in front on her own and never looked in danger that jockey Rob Hornby let her ease down to cross the line by 1¾ lengths. The Amy Murphy-trained BREATH OF JOY (GB) (Kodiac) was the runner-up under David Probert. The Richard Spencer-trained Odyssey Girl (IRE) (Gutaifan) was a further short-head behind in third under Angus Villiers. Off an official rating of 90 coming into this race, AFRAID OF NOTHING carried a top weight.

AFRAID OF NOTHING is by CHARM SPIRIT (IRE), a Qatar Racing stallion at Tweenhills. She was the first foal out of the GALILEO (IRE) mare LADY DRAGON (IRE), who was a three-time winner and Stakes placed in France for Qatar Racing Ltd.
