Snow Lantern with Sean Levey and groom Ella Jayne Smith
Following discussions with connections, Snow Lantern will not be taking up her engagement in the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket and will instead be aimed for either the Group 3 Musidora Stakes or the Listed Michael Seely Stakes at York's May meeting.
With the Michael Seely being run over a mile and the Musidora over a mile and a quarter, both of these races give us options and an extra couple of weeks. Either race will give us a good guide on where we stand for the rest of the season with her. She holds entries in the Epsom Oaks and Prix de Diane, and these engagements will be dependant on her York performance.
She is a special filly, with a beautiful pedigree and has already proved an exciting prospect for her owner-breeders, Rockcliffe Stud.
