GROUP 3 WINNING FILLY OLLIE OLGA TO TAKE ON THE COLTS IN THE £500,000 TATTERSALLS MILLIONS 2YO TROPHY

Mick Channon is bidding to beat 2YO maestro Richard Hannon’s attempt to bag a third race in the Tattersalls Millions in as many weeks having entered his Group 3 winning filly OLLIE OLGA in the £500,000 Tattersalls Millions 2YO Trophy which takes place at Newmarket Racecourse this Saturday, 6th October.

Hannon sends three strong contenders to the most valuable race in the Tattersalls Millions having declared Group 3 winner HAVANA GOLD, £100,000 Tattersalls Millions Median Auction Trophy winner TAMAYUZ STAR and GLOBAL ICON, who came third in that same race two weeks ago.

However, Mick Channon’s filly OLLIE OLGA, who was originally entered in both Tattersalls Millions races on Saturday, has been declared to run in the £500,000 Tattersalls Millions 2YO Trophy for colts, geldings and fillies, instead of the £300,000 Tattersalls Millions2YO Fillies Trophy. Channon believes that Ollie Olga is good enough to beat the colts, but he leaves his other filly GRAPGHIC GUEST, to run in the fillies’ race.

He commented “We wanted to keep the two fillies apart as they are both lovely fillies with good chances to win and I think Ollie Olga has a great chance against the colts. Last time out she ran disappointingly because she was in season. We are hoping she is over that now but if she is still in season then we will probably take her out of the race.

“As for Graphic Guest, she messed around in the stalls last time but since then she has passed the stalls test and I think she will have a great chance on Saturday.”
Also in the fillies race which takes place earlier on the card, is Jeremy Noseda’s THE GOLD CHEONGSAM who is bidding for her fourth career win from seven starts and first and second in the £100,000 Tattersalls Millions Fillies Median Auctions Stakes on 22nd September, Hannon’s VICTRIX LUDORUM and James Fanshawe’s BADR AL BADOOR respectively.

The Tattersalls October Yearling Sale Book 1 takes place from Tuesday 9 October until Thursday 11 October. Catalogues are out now and available from Tattersalls in Newmarket or and Tattersalls overseas representatives.
