Snowy Winter is likely to return to Ireland next month following her recent Listed triumph at Gowran.
Archie Watson’s filly was a 25-1 winner of the Hurry Harriet Stakes, in which she got the better of the Aidan O’Brien-trained Hence by a nose.
Watson said: “It was not really a surprise to see her win at Gowran as she has been Listed-placed three times before that and fourth in a Group race. We probably got used to finding one too good.
“She is a very tough filly. We bought her in February of last year out of the Goffs as an unraced three-year-old from Godolphin.
“She has progressed and always gives her running and that is credit the team at home.
“I’d imagine she will go back to Ireland next. She’s in the Snow Fairy Stakes at the Curragh on September 1 over an extended mile and one (furlong) and there is also a Group Three over the same course and distance as the Hurry Harriet at Gowran Park (Lanwades Stud Fillies Stakes, September 22).
“She will either go to the Curragh and then Gowran Park, or straight to Gowran Park.”
