 Showroom, a Sept. 30 G2 Royal Lodge S. and 2018 G1 Epsom Derby entry, was sharply into stride and seized control after the initial strides of this unveiling. Shaken up at the quarter-mile marker, the 7-2 pick quickened in impressive fashion to surge clear approaching the final eighth and maintained a high tempo in the run to the line, stopping the clock five lengths in advance of Ship of the Fen (GB) (Champs Elysees {GB}). Showroom, who was produced by an unraced half to Listed Prix Urban Sea victress Lake Palace (GB) (Nayef) and last Saturday’s Listed La Coupe de Marseille winner Hebah (Ire) (Sea the Stars {Ire}), is a half-brother to last term’s G2 Prix de Malleret heroine Al Wathna (GB) (Nayef) and a yearling colt by Wootton Bassett (GB). His dual stakes-placed granddam Lia (Ire) (Desert King {Ire}) is kin to Listed Prix Delahante runner-up Lit (Ire) (Danehill), who in turn is the granddam of GI American Oaks third Little Journey (Fr) (Great Journey {Jpn}). The winner’s fourth dam, G2 Prix de Pomone-winning G1 Prix Vermeille third Light the Lights (Fr) (Shirley Heights {GB}), is also the granddam of G1 Prix du Jockey Club hero and MG1SW sire Lawman (Fr) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}), G1 Prix de Diane victress and GI E.P. Taylor S. runner-up Latice (Ire) (Inchinor {GB}), and GSW G1 Prix Maurice de Gheest second Satri (Ire) (Mujadil). Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, £15,563.
