The daughter of Danehill has proven her durability this year, breaking her maiden on May 16 then placing in both the Boylesports Irish 1000 Guineas (Ire-I) and the Vodafone Oaks (Eng-I) within two weeks of her first win.
Speciosa, winner of the 2006 Stan James One Thousand Guineas (Eng-I), took the lead after the first furlong and led the field of nine fillies and mares through most of the ten furlong race.
Kieren Fallon held Peeping Fawn in mid-pack most of the way, then brought her to the outside and gunned her to the lead with one furlong left. The filly won by two lengths over Speciosa, with Prix de Diane (Fr-I) winner, West Wind, another two lengths back in third.
Time for the ten furlongs was 2:10.63 over a course rated as soft.
Peeping Fawn is the first foal out of the Sadler’s Wells mare, Maryinsky. This is proving to be a banner year for Blush With Pride, the second dam of Peeping Fawn. She is also the dam of Better Than Honour, who has produced consecutive Belmont Stakes (gr. I) winners, Rags to Riches and Jazil.
