Worldwide celebrations for Olympic Glory and Toronado

May 18, 2020

New Stakes glory for our stallion OLYMPIC GLORY on Thursday 14 May at ParisLongchamp when his four-year-old daughter GRAND GLORY recorded an easy success in the Listed Prix Zarkava – Fonds Européen de l’Elevage. On sabbatical after running third in the 2019 Gr.1 Prix de Diane, the Haras de Bourgeauville-bred impressively dropped from last to first and is now targeting the Gr.2 Prix Corrida for her next rendezvous. 

Four times Gr.1 winner OLYMPIC GLORY also collected two successes on Sunday 17 May on each side of the planet: in Australia, THE FIRST RING broke his maiden tag with a 1,8 lengths-success at Queanbeyan racecourse while in Germany, the SCEA des Prairies and Audrey Leyval-bred OLYMPEA crossed the finish line first at Koln. There was more to celebrate for the breeding duo on Sunday 17 May with TORONADO’s GALLICA FLAVIA storming home to record a breathtaking 10 lengths-victory in the Grand Prix des trois ans in Guadeloupe. 

TORONADO continued his impressive Australian set of new winners each single week with a new busy weekend: CHINA AFFAIR opened his winning account at second asking in a 1,000 meters maiden race at Cranbourne on Friday while the impressive multiple time scorer LAVERROD added a third consecutive 1,8 lengths-victory to his tally on Saturday. On Sunday 13 May at Bendigo, the two-year-old MISS KANSAS was seen in the victors’ enclosure to celebrate a first success at second asking. 

Congratulations to all connections!
