April 29, 1994|By Ross Peddicord

Irish Forever, trained in Harford County by Billy Boniface, finished 10th yesterday in the English 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket Race Course in Newmarket, England.

The Boniface runner is the first American-trained horse to compete in the mile-long race, which is the first of the English classics for 3-year-old fillies. Las Meninas, the winner, beat Irish Forever by eight lengths.

Balanchine, trained in Dubai, of the United Arab Emirates, and flown in just for this race, finished second.
