Olmedo was restrained off the pace and found a comfortable rhythm racing at the back of the main body of the field after the initial exchanges of this debut. Allowed an inch of rein off the home turn, the 33-5 chance quickened smartly to challenge wide entering the final eighth and easily outclassed his rivals in the closing stages, cruising to the line four lengths in advance of Alhadab (Fr) (Camelot {GB}). “Of my 2-year-olds, he has always been the number one and was working brilliantly,” insisted trainer Jean-Claude Rouget. “He has a lovely action and stride and does things very easily. He is an easy ride and was really quite impressive.” The €100,000 ARAUG yearling, a fifth winner for his freshman sire (by War Front), is the second scorer from as many foals to race produced by a winning daughter of G3 Prix Penelope runner-up Super Lina (Fr) (Linamix {Fr}), herself a half-sister to G2 Prix Noailles-winning sire and G1 Prix du Jockey Club runner-up Super Celebre (Fr) (Peintre Celebre), from a family which includes MGISW US champion Steinlen (GB) (Habitat). Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, €13,500.
