About Step Softly

Step Softly is a 12 year old broodmare who was purchased privately in December of 2016. Step softly was bred by The Queen and carried her colours as a 2 year old winning her first two starts over 7 furlongs at Folkstone, and a hot 6 furlong Class 4 Novice at Haydock. She achieved her all important Black Type on only her 4th start as a 2 year old, in the high quality 7 furlong Group 3 Oh So Sharp Stakes at Newmarket for trainer Richard Hannon Snr.

After being sold at the end of her 2 year old career she began her 3 year old season in France with Jean Claude Rouget. Her first start was at Longchamp finishing 3rd in a Listed race on unflavoured heavy ground and completed her season with a comfortable win at Deauville.

As a 4 year old Step Softly raced in America, trained by Ben Cecil, her final win came over a mile at Hollywood Park, demonstrating her usual fast finishing speed and determination.

Although bred to stay much further being by Golan out of a Shirley Heights mare, her wins came over 6f, 7f and a mile, she loved fast ground and as well as achieving black type herself she is also half sister to 4 winners including the Group 3 winner, Chief Yeoman.

Bought to be covered by our resident stallion, Albaasil, Step Softly will be covered early in 2017 and is a perfect match for him.
