Description

Bay filly by Nathaniel / Portal (Hernando). Homebred. This filly is a half-sister to the G1 St Leger third Windshear being out of the Listed Alice Keppel Handicap Stakes winner Portal, who herself is a half-sister to Varian Stable inmate and Listed-placed White Lake.

Pilaster posted a career best to win the G2 Lillie Langtry Stakes at Glorious Goodwood on just her fourth career start. She was partnered by David Egan who was also recording his first Group success. Her next start came at Doncaster in the G2 Park Hill Stakes where she had to shoulder a penalty. She got rolling a little late that day and had to settle for a close third behind God Given and Horseplay.

She made her reappearance in the Listed Further Flight Stakes at Nottingham where she finished third on ground that was a little quicker than ideal. She finished fourth on her next start in the G3 Bronte Cup Fillies' Stakes over 1m6f and she ran another solid race in the G3 Pinnacle Stakes to finish third in testing conditions. She returned to Goodwood to defend her crown in the G2 Lillie Langtry, but unfortunately found a few too good, eventually finishing fifth. Her fifth at Longchamp in the G1 Prix Royallieu - worthy of a reassesed mark of 108 - was much more like her best, and she shaped as though a stiffer test on her preferred late-season ground will see her in an even better light.

Race Record: 11-3-0-3
