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 2016 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 2017 New Year and we've been steadily building her training exercise up. If you go here you can see her in an early piece of work; she has been quietly progressive as Spring as turned to Summer and Mark put her on the track in an extended five furlong Fillies Maiden at one of Bath's Evening Meetings at the beginning of June; after a slightly slow start she made steady and progressive progressive progress throughout the last furlong and a half; she will improve significantly for this and should be competitive in Handicaps later in the Summer probably over six and seven furlongs.
