Approve gets off the mark with first winner

MORRISTOWN LATTIN Stud's freshman sire Approve was represented by his first winner on Wednesday when his daughter Lazy Days In Loule led from pillar to post to win a 5f maiden at Beverley.

Eighth on her debut at Redcar this month, Lazy Days In Loule was bought by her trainer Noel Wilson for €8,000 at the Goffs Sportsman Yearling Sale last year.

She is the first foal out of the unraced Selkirk mare Lazy Lady, who is a half-sister to the Listed-placed winner Broghill and descends from the family of Lancashire Oaks and dual Grade 1 winner Squeak.

A son of Oasis Dream, Approve won three of his nine starts for William Haggas at two before being retired to stud.

After losing his maiden at the second time of asking, Approve went on to win a pair of Group 2s - the Norfolk Stakes and Gimcrack Stakes - before finishing third in the Middle Park Stakes.

Approve is covering mares this year at a fee of €5,000.
