Blue Bunting bids for 2nd classic win at St. Leger

Blue Bunting bids for 2nd classic win at St. Leger

Blue Bunting will look to win her second classic of the British flat-racing season for the Godolphin stable when Italian jockey Frankie Dettori climbs aboard the filly for Saturday's St. Leger at Doncaster.
The 1,000 Guineas is one of three Group One races won by Blue Bunting this year and she is in safe hands under Dettori, who has ridden to six victories in the race over a mile and six furlongs.
Dettori says "usually it's very hard for a filly to take on the colts but she's tough ... we go into the race hoping she's going to run another big one."
Blue Bunting is likely to start as second favorite in the oldest of the five British classics behind Sea Moon, the Michael Stoute-trained colt owned by Saudi prince Khalid Abdullah.
