Run The Red Light sprang a 50/1 surprise with a convincing three length victory in the Loder Fillies Race (1400m) at the Curragh on Sunday.
She is the fourth first-crop winner by Alfred Nobel who shuttled from Coolmore Stud to Lynward Park in Western Australia between 2011 and 2013.
Run The Red Light (2f Alfred Nobel – Lilakiya by Dr Fong) wasn’t sighted on good ground when making her debut at Galway last week, however, she appreciated soft conditions while making all the pace second-up.
“She’s a lovely big, rangy filly and came on a heap from Galway,” owner-trainer Andrew Oliver said. “She holds an entry in the Debutante Stakes but she’s a filly for next year, really.”
Run The Red Light is a half-sister to winners by King’s Best and Refuse To Bend and was an 8,000 euros (AUD 11,415) buy for Oliver at the Tattersalls Ireland yearling sale last September. Her dam is a half-sister to Linngari (Indian Ridge) who was a Group 1 winner in Milan and Munich.
Alfred Nobel (Danehill Dancer) isn’t shuttling to WA this year but will return to Lynward Park for the 2015 breeding season.
