Freddy Head plans to train Terrakova for the French 1,000 Guineas after the daughter of the mighty Goldikova made a winning debut on the all-weather surface at Chantilly.
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.”
