First Winner For Recoletos



Haras du Quesnay's first-season sire Recoletos (Fr) (by Whipper) is off the mark after his daughter Markswoman (Fr) captured the opener at Compiegne on Tuesday. Fifth over 6 1/2 furlongs on debut at Craon June 13, the 23-5 shot was restrained early to race in rear. Cajoled into contention in early straight, she needed a remainder to overhaul Anoline (Fr) (Anodin {Ire}) and responded to head that rival inside the last 100 metres for a 3/4-of-a-length success. She is the last known foal out of the dam, a relative of the Arc-winning champion Sakhee whose sole black-type performer to date is the Listed Prix Roland de Chambure runner-up Marasquin (Fr) (Zanzibari).
