  • O'Brien feels the Love after Moyglare Stud Stakes win at the Curragh

By Duane Fonsecà

Trainer Aidan O'Brien and rider Ryan Moore landed back to back Group One successes at the Curragh on Sunday after Love raced to a three fourth length victory in the Moyglare Stud Stakes following up on Fairyland's hard fought triumph in the Flying Five a race prior.
It was the 2yo Galileo filly's third career win and was achieved after another brilliant riding performance from Moore, who forced Love to push for the lead early on in the seven furlong contest.
Love was third approaching two furlongs and then made her way to second with a little over a furlong left to run. Moore pushed Love further and he went to the front in the final furlong progressing consistently for a three fourth length victory over Daahyeh with another O'Brien charge So Wonderful taking third by the same margin.
O'Brien said: "She's genuine, has a beautiful pedigree and stays very well.
"She has a beautiful action and when Ryan asked her to get down and lengthen she stuck her head out.
"She's been working lovely and progressing with every run."
O'Brien added: "We thought she was a filly that would be crying out for a mile this year.
"We were trying to keep her at seven for as long as we could with the view to coming here and then maybe finishing off in the Fillies' Mile and being a Classic filly next year."
