DOWN SIR DOWN (SAF)
Count Dubois (GB) - Feather Bed (IRE) by Fools Holme (USA)

Backworth-bred Count Dubois filly, Down Sir Down, third on her last two racetrack visits, stepped it up at Scottsville Sunday under a fiesty ride from Muzi Yeni to win a competitive 1400m maiden for trainers Pat and Lloyd Lunn.

The 3-year-old is out of our Irish mare, Feather Bed by Fools Holme, who is an own sister to Grade 1 winners FRENCHPARK (GB) and SAYEH (IRE) and a half sister to PEARLY SHELLS (GB), the 3rd Top Rated Filly in Europe in 2002.

Congratulations to the Lunns and all connections.
