Qipco 2000 Guineas winner Dawn Approach – Raised and Raced on Gain
The unbeaten Dawn Approach was the impressive winner of the Qipco 2000 Guineas at Newmarket recently. The three year old chestnut colt bred and trained by J.S. Bolger and ridden by Kevin Manning pulled away from the field to win by about four lengths ahead of Glory Awaits to take the Classic title. The victorious colt was the 11-8 favourite for the race and was no match for his market rival Tornadeo who finished behind him in third place. Dawn Approach is by New Approach and out of Hymn of The Dawn (USA) ran in the colours of Goldolphin, but is also part owned by J.S.Bolger who has a 49% stake in the colt. Dawn Approach is trained in Ireland at J.S. Bolger’s Coolcullen establishment.
