2013 British Triple Crown - 2000 Guineas

I had better get these 2 posts done before today's Belmont Stakes. Thanks for the nudge Ian. It was a 1-2-3 finish for descendants of Northern Dancer in the first leg of this year's Triple Crown - the 2000 Guineas. It was undefeated Dawn Approach winning for Godolphin and trainer Jim Bolger. He is a grandson of the Dancer's grandson Galileo through Sadlers Wells.

1) Dawn Approach (IRE)- great great grandson
2) Glory Awaits (IRE) - great great grandson x3
3) Van Der Neer (GB) - great great grandson x3
