December ends with our homebred HAIJA breaking her maiden tag at Wolverhampton, GB on December, 23. Raised at Haras de Bouquetot and in the care of John and Teddy Gosden, our daughter of SHALAA scored in a 7 furlongs Fillies’ Novice Stakes under the ride of Robert Havlin. Out of the Galileo mare RASMIYA, HAIJA is a sister to the precocious and promising JOUZA, a two-year-old winning daughter of TORONADO.
Tally-Ho Stud-based GALILEO GOLD and Haras de Bouquetot-based BRAMETOT both celebrated new victories with their first crop of runners. GALILEO GOLD sports a 39% winners to runners rate with his first crop of two-year-olds in 2021, including a G1 winner and 5 additional Stakes performers. His 26th first-crop winner was courtesy of RED BOURBON who captured the Premio Cesare Turry on debut at Pisa, Italy.
BRAMETOT celebrated a new juvenile success with P. Hendrickx and Mrs N. Hendricks-bred CLEVER GIRL who grabbed the gold medal on her first time out at Deauville, France on December, 23.
Tally-Ho Stud-based MEHMAS keeps the good scores with a new round of international victories. J.M. O’Mulloy-bred two-year-old MAYTREE RESPITE defeated his 11 rivals on December, 20 at Wolverhampton, UK to collect a victory on his second start only. In the USA, three-year-old MAMBA WAMBA grabbed all the honors when winning on December, 23 at Gulfstream Park and in Spain, three-year-old ASTIMEGOESBY proved best at Dos Hermanas racecourse.
Haras de Bouquetot’s TORONADO completed a new double of heroes on both sides of the planet on December, 21, DANCE DATE honoring her rendezvous at Geelong, Australia and CAPABLE securing a third victory at Marseille Pont-de-Vivaux, France for breeder Haras d’Etreham. Third winner of the week was Haras de Bouquetot-bred BOSIOH who crossed the finish line first for the 6th time at Deauville, France on December, 23.
Congratulations to all connections!
