Halford planning Naas Trial date for Hamariyna

Monday, May 20 2019

Michael Halford’s Hamariyna is to step up in trip for the Naas Oaks Trial on June 26.

The Aga Khan-owned filly has made giant strides since making her debut in April, winning on her second start at Tipperary.

Thrown into Group Three company for a 1,000 Guineas Trial at Leopardstown recently, she ran out a clear-cut winner and Halford believes she will be even better over middle distances.

He said: “I sent Hamariyna home for a week after she won, but she’ll go to Naas for the Oaks Trial and then we’ll consider the Oaks (at the Curragh) with her.

“She did well to win over a mile, and we always felt she was a filly that wanted further.”
