One of the highlights of the Ebor Festival at York in August was the running of the Group 1 Nunthorpe Stakes sponsored by Coolmore. The line-up was led by short-priced favourite Lady Aurelia and Battaash. The race lived up to its hype with outsider Marsha edging out Lady A by a nose in the most dramatic fashion.
EAL had a fantastic portrait of Lady Aurelia painted by Vineta Sayer and displayed above, on exhibition in their Blue Rider Gallery. The work was featured by ITV and later sold on the day to one of Lady A’s American owners.
