by Stimulation ex Heart Felt ( Beat Hollow )
By Stimulation who produced last years Cesarewitch winner Sweet Selection and out of a Beat Hollow mare, Born To Please is very much bred to stay. She had quite a good start as a 2 year old, finishing 2nd at Windsor on her 2nd run and followed up with a solid run at Sandown to finish 5th. She raced like a true professional that day, we just felt she was just a bit weak at the time to see it out. Later we tried her on the all-weather but she never really took to it. Towards the end out 2016 we decided to put her away and bring her back as a 3 year old.
She came back into work at the end of February and has quietly progressed on the racecourse running well behind our own Bayston Hill at Bath at the end of May and finishing a running on third at Nottingham in the third week of July; she then fulfilled the promise she has always shown by winning a mile Appprentic Handicap at Sandown at the beginning of August under a confident ride from Nicola Currie, who gets on particuartly welll with her; you can see a video of their performance here
