There was another nail-biter of a stakes win this afternoon when CRYSTAL CLIFFS (FR) hit the wire together with Lady Speightspeare in the Nassau Stakes-G2 at Woodbine. Crystal Cliffs (FR) and Rafael Hernandez stalked the pace, swung out on the turn and continued to advance on Lady Speightspeare and Emma Jayne Wilson with both mares getting their noses on the wire simultaneously.
This was the first graded stakes win for Crystal Cliffs (FR). She was third in the Eatontown Stakes-G3 last summer at Monmouth Park and second in Pimlico’s Gallorette Stakes-G3 on Preakness Day this past May.
Bred in France by M.L. Bloodstock Ltd., the 5-year-old daughter of Canford Cliffs (IRE) is owned by Michael Dubb, Madaket Stables and Wonder Stables. Congrats to all connections on today’s win!
