Central Park West | Scoop Dyga

Haras de Grandcamp-based freshman sire Martinborough (Jpn) (Deep Impact {Jpn}) registered his first winner when his gelded son Central Park West (Fr) posted a half-length verdict at Dieppe.

1st-Dieppe, €16,000, Mdn, 6-8, 2yo, c/g, 5 1/2fT, 1:05.55, g/s.
CENTRAL PARK WEST (FR) (g, 2, Martinborough {Jpn}–Rapid Transaction, by A.P. Indy) occupied a stalking role behind the leaders through halfway in this debut. Coming under pressure to close passing the quarter-mile marker, the 13-10 favourite went third approaching the eighth pole and found another gear inside the final 100 metres to deny long-time leader Oneonechop (Fr) (Kheleyf) by a half-length in the dying strides, becoming the first winner for his Haras de Grandcamp-based freshman sire (by Deep Impact {Jpn}). Kin to  SP Listed Prix Yacowlef second Fastidious (Fr) (Zanzibari), he is the latest foal and second scorer out of a winning half-sister to GSW GI Del Mar Futurity third Can The Man (Into Mischief) and the stakes-winning Martha's Moon (Malibu Moon). His G2 Prix d'Astarte-winning second dam Smolensk (Danzig), who also ran second in the G1 Coronation S., is a daughter of MGISW GI Kentucky Oaks heroine Blush With Pride (Blushing Groom {Fr}). Descendants of Blush With Pride include MGISW GI Kentucky Oaks and GI Belmont S. heroine Rags to Riches (A.P. Indy), GI Belmont S.-winning sire Jazil (Seeking the Gold) and GI Hollywood Starlet S. victress Streaming (Smart Strike). Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, €8,000. Video, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
