A tough & classy performance from The Wow Signal saw him Win today’s Gr.1 Prix Morny in Deauville and complete a fantastic Gr.1 double for Richard Knight following Garswood’s win in the Prix Maurice de Gheest just a fortnight ago.
The Wow Signal who won the Coventry Stakes Gr.2 on his previous start showed great courage and battling qualities in his victory today on ground softer than ideal for him. With Frankie Dettori niggling at him from halfway he picked up well when switched for a run and battled hard to beat Hootenanny by 1/2 length.
The Wow Signal who is trained by John Quinn was purchased as a breeze-up horse by Sean Quinn and then as a horse-in-training by Al Shaqab Racing Ltd on the advice of Richard Knight. His future targets look set to include the Gr.1 Jean-Luc Lagardere on Arc day and ultimately the Gr.1 2000 Guineas.
Congratulations to all connections.
