Snow Fairy back-to-back win in QE II Cup
Snow Fairy(IRE) posted a back-to-back victory in the grade one Queen Elizabeth II Commemorative Cup this afternoon when she won the 2,200-meter race in 2 minutes 11.60 seconds under the hands of Ryan Moore.
Aventura, a neck behind the winner, was second with Apapane another length back third. Whale Capture finished fourth followed by Rainbow Dahlia fifth in the field of 18 fillies and mares.
Shimmei Fuji weakened around 200 meters out, and Whale Capture, Apapane and Aventura fought for the lead. One of the three looked like a sure winner, but all of sudden Snow Fairy was on the seen. She just split between Whale Capture and Apapane right before she put her neck in front at the line.
