Almanzor's Lassaut A New Rising Star In France


Lassaut (red and purple silks) | Scoop Dyga


Riviera Equine & Haras d'Etreham's 3-year-old colt Lassaut (Fr) (Almanzor {Fr}) followed up a Dec. 12 debut third going 7 1/2 furlongs at Deauville with a taking one-length triumph upped to one mile at Chantilly coming back for his sophomore return in Wednesday's Prix de la Broutillerie. The Jean-Claude Rouget trainee, sent postward as the 16-5 second favourite, was the slowest of eight into stride and raced in rear through halfway. Easing to the outside for a clear passage soon after passing the quarter-mile marker, he came under urging approaching the eighth pole and quickened smartly in the closing stages to comfortably outpoint Listed Prix Herod third Tribalist (GB) (Farhh {GB}) nearing the line for a 'TDN Rising Star' tag.

Lassaut is the third of four foals and first scorer produced by an unraced half-sister to MGSW G2 Prix Robert Papin victor and G1 Prix Morny runner-up Family One (Fr) (Dubai Destination) and Listed Premio Eupili second Modern Family (Fr) (Excellent Art {GB}). He is kin to a 2-year-old filly by Wootton Bassett (GB) and hails from the family of MG1SW sire Lethal Force (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}). The February-foaled bay's stakes-winning second dam Ascot Family (Ire) (Desert Style {Ire}) is a half-sister to MGSP Listed Scarborough S. victrix Flanders (Ire) (Common Grounds {GB}), herself the ancestress of G1 Haydock Sprint Cup-winning sire G Force (Ire) (Tamayuz {GB}) and GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf and G1 Poule d'Essai des Pouliches heroine Flotilla (Fr) (Mizzen Mast).
