Cheveley Park Stud’s Sacred Powers To Chartwell Triumph

Cheveley Park Stud’s Sacred (GB) (Exceed And Excel {Aus}–Sacre Caroline, by Blame) had failed in three prior attempts at Group 1 level, but top-table options remain open after she collected a third pattern-race triumph in Saturday’s recalibrated G3 Fitzdares Chartwell Fillies’ S. at Lingfield.

She was making her first start on a synthetic surface here and 2021’s G3 Nell Gwyn S. and G2 Hungerford S. victrix returned to action for this seven-furlong heat coming back off a second over the same trip in October’s G2 Challenge S. at Newmarket.

Sacred went postward as the well-backed 13-8 favourite and was steadied to employ patient tactics in rear after an alert getaway. Shaken up to close into the short home straight, she quickened in impressive fashion to pounce out wide with 100 yards remaining and powered clear in style from there, hitting the line strong and 2 1/4 lengths clear of familiar rival Sandrine (GB) (Bobby’s Kitten).

Pedigree Notes
Sacred is the first of five foals and one of two winners from three runners out of a winning half-sister to MGISW US champion distaffer Lady Eli (Divine Park), GIII Regret S. and GIII Mint Julep H. victrix Bizzy Caroline (Afleet Alex) and GIII Jimmy Durante third Princesa Caroline (American Pharoah). The April-foaled bay is a half-sister to the unraced 2-year-old colt Joycean Way (GB) (Ulysses {Ire}) and a yearling filly by Frankel (GB). Descendants of her third dam Kazadancoa (Fr) (Green Dancer) include MGISW distaffer Spiced Perfection (Smiling Tiger), G1 Racing Post Trophy-winning sire Palace Episode (Machiavellian), GISW Canadian champion Spring In The Air (Spring At Last) and GI Spinaway S. winner Sweet Loretta (Tapit).
