Winter Lands O’Brien, Moore Another Classic Double In Irish 1000 Guineas

Less than 24 hours after completing a double in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket and the Curragh with budding superstar colt Churchill, Aidan O'Brien and Ryan Moore partnered again on Sunday to score another classic double with 3-year-old filly Winter, reports attheraces.com. Winner of the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket in a surprise effort over her favored stablemate Rhododendron, the Coolmore-owned and bred daughter of Galileo was heavily favored leaving the starting gate in the Irish 1000 Guineas. Winter scored by 4 3/4 lengths over her stablemates Roly Poly and Hydrangea, giving O'Brien the trifecta as well.

“It was very easy and she gave me a lovely ride,” said Ryan Moore. “I couldn't have been more impressed with her – she was relentless and it rode like a piece of work for her. She's a very good filly.”

“It's for everyone really. A lot of people work very hard,” O'Brien said of achieving the dual-classic doubles. “Over 20 years if I named out all the people, I'd only forget people. As each horse comes along there is a team of people around them. We'd be very grateful to a lot of people.”

Galileo is the first stallion in more than 50 years to sire the winner of all four classic races in the same year.
