Tenacious Asfoora Royal Ascot bound 2024

Asfoora takes on Europe, the exciting sprinter heads to the races on a Royal Ascot path looking to continue the history of Australian winners in recent years

Aussie sprinter Asfoora primed for first start on UK soil

Asfoora will become the latest Australian sprinter to try and strike a blow in England when beginning her optimistic European campaign in the Group 2 Temple Stakes at Haydock on Saturday night.

An eight-time winner in Australia, including twice in Group 2 company, Asfoora will face the likes of last year’s Nunthorpe hero Live In The Dream and the 2023 Haydock Sprint champion Regional in the 1007m event at the Merseyside venue.

The five-year-old mare Asfoora, was also runner-up to Imperatriz in the Group 1 Moir Stakes last spring, last seen finishing fourth in the Group 1 Galaxy over 1100m at Rosehill in March, her trainer Henry Dwyer is confident she can be competitive against UK opposition.

“I’ve got full respect for the Nunthorpe winner and the Haydock Sprint winner from last year, but I think Asfoora will measure up for sure,” Dwyer said at a media call in England overnight.

“It’s not a holiday, although I do like a holiday.

“I couldn’t be happier with how Asfoora looks, how she is in herself, how her work has been and how she’s settled in over here.

“If anything, Asfoora is more settled here than she is at home. The trip has done here the world of good.”

The Temple Stakes kicks off a campaign with Group 1 campaigns down the track for Asfoora, including a second-up run in the Group 1 King Charles III Stakes (formerly King’s Stand Stakes) at Royal Ascot.

“We’ve got a pretty ambitious summer planned; we’re not here for a haircut, we’re here to win races,” he said.

“Asfoora can kick off at Haydock, go to Ascot, then there’s six weeks to Glorious Goodwood if we want to do that, which we do.

“Then you’ve got a break until the Nunthorpe and if you’re still standing by then Asfoora can potentially go to the Curragh for the Flying Five or to France for the l’Abbaye.”

Mitchell Aitken, Asfoora’s regular rider in Australia, has flown over to take the mount, something Dwyer felt vital for the beginning of her preparation in the UK.

“We’ll be looking for a Northern Hemisphere jockey to ride but I just thought Mitch was really important to have here for Asfoora’s first start,” the Ballarat trainer said.

“Just with the little idiosyncrasies Asfoora has got and different things over here with the barriers.

“It will be a good thrill for Mitch and a good experience for him, but we’ll be keen to get a European jockey after that.”

Watch Asfoora in the Temple Stakes is Race 2 on the Haydock card and will be run at 10.50pm AEST.

Asfoora: Continuing Australia’s Legacy of Sprinting Success in Europe

Australia has a storied tradition of producing world-class sprinters who have made significant impacts on the European racing scene. This long list of remarkable thoroughbreds includes legends such as Choisir, Nature Strip, and Black Caviar.

These champions not only showcased Australian breeding prowess but also captivated international audiences with their speed and tenacity.

Asfoora is poised to follow in these illustrious hoofprints, backed by the expertise and proven track record of Kurrinda Bloodstock, a syndicator renowned for bringing top-class sprinters to the forefront of global racing.

Choisir, for example, was a trailblazer, breaking new ground when he traveled to England in 2003 to compete at Royal Ascot.

His victories in the King’s Stand Stakes and the Golden Jubilee Stakes not only earned him a place in history but also paved the way for future Australian sprinters to compete on the international stage.

Black Caviar, often referred to as the best sprinter of all time, continued this legacy with her unbeaten record over 25 races.

Her triumph in the 2012 Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot remains a testament to her extraordinary ability and the high standards of Australian breeding and training.

More recently, Nature Strip has taken up the mantle, winning the prestigious King’s Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot in 2022.

His victory reaffirmed Australia’s position as a powerhouse in the world of sprint racing and highlighted the potential for Australian sprinters to dominate on the global stage.
