Listed quinella for Footsteps in Rome

THE Listed Premio Alberto Giubilo at Capannelle on Wednesday was all about Coolmore's second season sire Footstepsinthesand after he sired the first two home, Step Up and Way To Fly.

Another Footstepsinthesand youngster, Lucky Fantasy, filled fourth while a son of Oratorio, Free Winner, took third to provide young Coolmore stallions with a sweep of the first four places.

Step Up is the fourth stakes winner for the unbeaten 2,000 Guineas winner Footstepsinthesand, who is also responsible for the recent Irish 2,000 Guineas fourth Steinbeck. The son of Giant's Causeway stands for €12,500.

Step Up is one of five winners out of Lady Melbourne, a winning Indian Ridge half-sister to Group 1 Premio Parioli winner Gay Burslem and Grade 1 Flower Bowl Handicap heroine Gaily Gaily.
