Terrakova on Classic trail
Freddy Head plans to train Terrakova for the French 1000 Guineas after the daughter of the mighty Goldikova made a winning debut on the all-weather surface at Chantilly.
Freddy Head: Already eyeing the Classics with Terrakova
The two-year-old filly, by prolific sire Galileo, got off the mark in pleasing fashion as she comfortably landed the odds over nine furlongs by three and a half lengths in the hands of Maxime Guyon.
"I'm very happy. She won very well. She's a pro and has done what I thought," said Head.
"The family are not very precocious horses. They need a bit of time, a bit like the mother did. I chose to run her on the Polytrack and am happy with her.
"We'll see next year where we go with her. I'll probably keep her over a mile and we'll try for the French Guineas. She'll have a prep run first."
Though she is the Goldikova's second foal, Terrakova is the first of her offspring to run.
Her year older full-brother Goldikovic is also trained by Head and could make his racecourse bow before the end of the year.
"She is Goldikova's second foal. The first is a three-year-old, Goldikovic. He's had a lot of problems but he's OK right now," said Head.
"If all goes well, he could run before the end of the year. She has a foal by Intello and was barren last year."
