Latest in the Bow dynasty set for debut

Posted by MWE: 7.10 AM Wednesday 29 July 2020

In 2005 a mare called Bow Bridge won the Listed Marygate Stakes at York. She was then third in the Group 2 Queen Mary Stakes when Royal Ascot was held at York. Retired to the paddocks she has produced many winners and today the latest in the dynasty, So Grateful, makes his debut in the British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden Stakes at Thirsk.

When he was born at Norton Grove Stud in March 2018 he had a crescent moon shaped star and was given the stablename 'Damian' after the child in The Omen movie.

He has grown nicely and yesterday went through his final preparations as he was ridden wearing racing silks of his owner/breeder Mrs Jarvis. Racing silks can make quite a noise when they blow about in the wind and can startle a young horse, so after yesterday's canter he will know more of what to expect! Here are some pictures of Damian as he has developed from a foal into a racehorse.

Damian now hopes to follow his half brothers Bowson Fred and Towbee and half sister Black Annis Bower into the winners enclosure.
