Our juvenile UNQUESTIONABLE broke his maiden in impressive fashion when making it all to score by 4 ½ lengths at the Curragh, Ireland on May, 27 under our colors. Owned in partnership with Coolmore Stud and Westerberg, our two-year-old was bred by Guillaume Vitse and all from Normandie Breeding. Entrusted to AP O’Brien, he earned a TDN Rising Star under the ride of Ryan Moore and is now an exciting Royal Ascot-bound.
Exciting week celebrated for our Haras de Bouquetot-based ZELZAL both on the sales ring and on the track. While his son leaded the way at frenetic Tattersalls Ireland Breeze-Up Sale with a final bid at €270,000, his highly consistent 3-year-old DUC DE KENT recorded a new blacktype performance. The Eric Puerari, Ecurie Ades-Hazan and Mrs G. Henochsberg-bred gained his first blacktype when finishing close runner-up in the Listed 167è Derby du Midi at Bordeaux-Le Bouscat, France on May, 28.
It was a new week and a new blacktype celebrated for our impressive Tally-Ho Stud’s resident MEHMAS courtesy of Golden Vale Stud's juvenile HACKMAN who finished third in the Listed National Stakes at Sandown, UK on May, 25, on his third start only. On the same day, NEPENTE crossed the finish line first in Italy over the 1,200 meters of Firenze.
Additional winners included five-year-olds MUKER and TAKEKO who were both celebrated on May, 24, respectively at Ayr, UK and at Brok Park, Sweden.
Our Haras de Bouquetot-based OLYMPIC GLORY was congratulated on both sides of the Channel sea, starting with the 2,5 lengths success of two-year-old SALALAH at Saint-Cloud, France on May, 29 on her second start only. The JS Campos-bred filly was joined by BS Racing-bred TOP GLORY who celebrated his second career-success in a 1,600 meters handicap race at Compiègne, France on May, 26. In the UK, Mrs Renate Moser-bred MOUNT OLYMPUS made a winning seasonal comeback on May, 24 in a handicap race at Kempton.
GALILEO GOLD was also rewarded overseas with his progeny bred by Tally-Ho Stud, starting with three-year-old MY DELILAH who opened her winning account at Bath on May, 26. A few minutes later, MY AMBITION offered on the same racecourse a new success when defeating his 8 rivals.
Haras de Bouquetot-based ECTOT claimed his love for life with his well-named three-year-old LOVE FOR LIFE who secured a second consecutive win at La Zarzuela on May, 28 for breeders Mrs E. Ribard and Mrs N. Malatier.
Congratulations to all winning connections!
