Angel Power has improved with every start this season and with each step up in class she has looked more impressive, culminating with a victory in the G2 Premio Lydia Tesio at Capannelle on Sunday.
Angel Power was purchased by King Power Racing at the Tattersalls October Book 1 Yearling Sale for 150,000gns. She is by Lope De Vega and the first foal out of her dam Burning Rules, who is a half-sister to the Group 3 winner Blue De Vega and the Listed-placed Bionic Woman.
She has progressed from the handicap ranks into a multiple Group winner and, in addition to winning five races, she has not been out of the first two in seven starts this year. Her maiden victory came in a mile fillies' novice at Chelmsford, but it was only when she stepped up to ten furlongs that her star quality began to really show. She was a runaway winner of the Class 2 1m2f fillies' handicap at York's Ebor Meeting and from there her journey into pattern company continued with victories in the Listed Prix de Liancourt at Longchamp, the G3 Pride Stakes at Newmarket and finally in the G2 Premio Lydia Tesio in Rome on Sunday.
Her jockey Gerald Mosse was extremely complimentary about the filly, saying that she was very straightforward and had no trouble controlling the race from the front even though it was her first time making the running. Most importantly she has the ability to quicken, which is so important when racing at this level. The plan is for her to stay in training as a four-year-old so hopefully she can add a Group 1 win to her already impressive CV.
