Freshman Sire Romanised Off The Mark at Tarbes

Romanised Haras de Bouquetot

By

Haras de Bouquetot resident Romanised (Ire) (Holy Roman Emperor {Ire}) became Europe's latest first-crop sire to get off the mark when his Philippe Sogorb-trained son O Sole Mio (Fr) shed maiden status at the first time of asking over 5 1/2 furlongs in Saturday morning's Prix Jacques Boutier at Tarbes.

1st-Tarbes, €23,000, Mdn, 4-20, unraced 2yo, c/g, 5 1/2fT, 1:07.60, g/s.
O SOLE MIO (FR) (c, 2, Romanised {Ire}–Vera Blue {Ire}, by Intello {Ger}) broke sharply from the outside gate and tracked better drawn rivals in third until beyond halfway in this debut. Shaken up passing the quarter-mile marker, the 37-5 chance was pushed to the front entering the final furlong and ridden out to hold the late thrust of Keanu (Fr) (Showcasing {GB}) by a neck. O Sole Mio is the lone reported foal produced by a winning daughter of Listed Prix Madame Jean Couturie and Listed Prix Vulcain runner-up Venturous Spirit (Fr) (Arch). The March-foaled dark bay's third dam Vatrouchka (Kingmambo) is a winning half-sister to G2 Prix de l'Opera victrix and MG1SP matriarch Verveine (Lear Fan). Sales history: €13,000 Ylg '23 ARQOCT. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, €11,500. Video, sponsored by FanDuel TV.
