Polly's on the mark
in Harvest Stakes

Princess Royal Transformers and Rectifiers EBF Harvest Stakes (Listed), Ascot, 3yo+ fillies, 1m4f

POLLY'S MARK (4 f Mark Of Esteem - Kotdiji, by Mtoto)

Breeder: Glashare House Stud

POLLY'S Mark added a second Listed win to her record in this event at the expense of the wayward Ferdoos, who hung badly towards the straight in the closing stages.

A daughter of Darley's pensioned stallion Mark Of Esteem, who enjoyed one of his finest moments at this meeting in 1996 when successful in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes, Polly's Mark is a sister to minor winner Yab Adee. They are out of the unraced Kotdiji, also the dam of minor winner Mister Carter.

Polly's Mark is bred along similar lines to the 2001 1,000 Guineas winner Ameerat,  a half-sister to Kotdiji who was from the first crop of Mark Of Esteem.

Kotdiji has a filly foal by Antonius Pius.
