Cashew (Bated Breath X Taste The Salt) was our first 2YO winner from the yearling draft last year. Raced over 5f on May 2nd she was crying out for the extra trip and went to post a very short priced favourite in the valuable Fillies Novice Stakes at Windsor. When headed at the furlong mark she showed how she relished the extra distance and ran out a comfortable 1½ lengths winner.
Cashew is the first foal out of the well bred mare Taste The Salt who was purchased as a foal for €220,000. Lightly raced she was placed twice before being retired due to injury. Taste The Salt has a yearling filly by Kodiac and a Gleneagles colt foal.
We would like to congratulate trainer George Boughey and owners Highclere Thoroughbred Racing for getting our first 2YO of 2021 into the winners enclosure.
