by Delegator ex Birdolini ( Bertolini )
Bred by Overtown Stud and by the promising first season sire, Delegator, out of a winning Mare, Bird for Life is a well put together filly with a good stride; her family have a track record of handicap success and have shown themselves to be particularly effective on the AW surfaces.
She came to Rowdown as an unbroken two year old in March and took a little time to find her feet; possibly because she came into work late. She then stuggled with a respiratory virus that hung around Lambourn over the high summer and she just couldn't shake it off. We took the decision to turn her out in the fresh air to finally get it out of her system. She came back to Rowdown in the New Year and we've been very steadily building her training exercise up. In truth she is still quite difficult to train due to health issues but she show glimpses of what she could do and it's worth persevering.
If you go here you can see her in an early piece of work; she has come on since then and if she continues in her slow progression she is a filly who should give the Racing Club a lot of fun in 2017.
