The Thousand Guineas was subsequently won by Homecoming Queen [2nd left]

Newmarket - The mysterious owner of a filly that died at Newmarket's starting stalls rejoices in the name of Mr H R Mould.

This afternoon Gray Pearl, the jewel in his crown of Thousand Guineas aspirations, was tragically struck down on the Rowley Mile snapping her back ahead of the 3.15.

Vets fought for half an hour to winch the horse into an ambulance following her sudden collapse beneath the 'notorious' stall number thirteen.

A Rails bookie said tonight "what a bloody omen" as Homecoming Queen was declared the runaway 9-length winner of the season's first classic.

The daughter of Holy Roman Emperor had been a 25/1 shot, the second string in Aidan O'Brien's formidable team.

Her sire became the Coolmore Stud's top stallion in 2007 following the dismal flop of stablemate George Washington.

A glittering career now awaits with the Derby and the Oaks a few weeks away.

Shergar's been missing since 1983.
