Famous Sole Power Sprint Stakes Winners

The Sole Power Sprint was first run in 2017 with victory going to Aidan O’Brien’s Acapulco. The American-bred mare is best remembered for her victory in the Queen Mary Stakes in 2015 when trained by Wesley Ward. She stayed in the UK to contest the Nunthorpe Stakes where she finished second to Mecca’s Angel.

Edward Lynam trained Sole Power so it was a special moment for the Trainer when his Soffia won this race in 2019. She followed up her success here with victories in the Group 3 Ballyogan Stakes and Group 2 Sapphire Stakes at the Curragh. She was particularly impressive when winning the latter, beating El Astronaute by three and a half lengths.

The other winners of this race to date were Ardhoomey (2018), Make A Challenge (2020), Log Hunter (2021), Brostaigh (2022) and Ladies Church (2023). Ladies Church made the headlines at Goffs November Breeding Stock Sale when sold for 970,000 Euros. She had won the Sapphire Stakes in 2022 for Trainer Johnny Murtagh and was runner-up in a Group 2 at Meydan.

Key Sole Power Sprint Stakes Trials

There are no obvious trial races for the Sole Power Sprint but it has attracted some established Group class fillies and mares. Victory here opens up possibilities for the big sprints at Royal Ascot or Group races nearer home such as the Ballyogan Stakes and Sapphire Stakes.

Sole Power Sprint Stakes Betting Trends

Acapulco won the inaugural running as the well-backed 11-8 favourite but she is the only clear market leader to oblige in the race’s short history. Soffia (2019) was 3-1 co-favourite when successful in 2019 and Ladies Church returned at 4-1 in 2023. The longest priced winner to date was 10-1 chance Brostaigh who won for Joseph O’Brien in 2022. Horses aged three and four have won five of the first seven runnings between them. The oldest winner was six-year-old Ardhoomey for Ger Lyons in 2018.

Sole Power Sprint Stakes – Top Trainers and Jockeys

It is too early to establish any significant stats from the winning connections in this race. There have been different trainers and jockeys for each of the first seven runnings of the Sole Power. Aidan O’Brien has yet to add to his victory in the 2017.

Betting on the Sole Power Sprint Stakes

The Sole Power Sprint Stakes is a relatively new addition to the Irish racing calendar. Acapulco set a very high standard in 2017 and the race is potentially a useful stepping-stone to better things. Favourites have a decent record with three and four-year-olds having an edge.
