Darley sire New Approach (IRE) posted his second stakes-winner at Royal Ascot when
t wo year-old filly Newfangled scored a dominant two and a half length win in
the Group III Albany Stakes over six furlongs.
The two-year-old filly debuted with a four and a half length win at Newmarket on June 8, before proving the victory was no fluke at her first attempt in Group company.
The John Gosden trained Newfangled jumped smartly from barrier 12 for William Buick and travelled well throughout before cruising clear.
"I was a passenger," Buick told the Sporting Life. "It wasn't really the plan (to make the running) because there was a strong headwind and I'd made my mind up at the start to sit in behind one or two.
"She jumped first - nothing else jumped in front of me- and when you fight a racehorse there's only one winner. She ran out of my hands and she picked up very well.
"She's a lovely filly and has a lot of quality. I've liked her all along and it's nice to have another winner at Royal Ascot for Princess Haya. When she won at Newmarket we knew she was above average."
Bred by Darley and raced by HRH Princess Haya of Jordan, Newfangled is the first stakes-winner for Machiavellian mare Scarlet Ibis, a daughter of Group I winner Flagbird from the family of US superstars Mineshaft and Tomisue's Delight.
The oldest Australian progeny by New Approach (pictured) are yearlings and have sold this year for up $475,000.
The English Derby winner returns to Darley Victoria this spring at a fee of $33,000.
