Freshman Sire Ultra Off The Mark at Dieppe


Bremontier became the first winner for freshman sire Ultra (above) at Dieppe | Marc Ruhl


Haras du Logis-based sire Ultra (Ire) (Manduro {Ger}) became the latest European freshman off the mark when Stephane Wattel trainee Bremontier (Fr) notched a debut win in Monday's Prix City Light, a seven-furlong newcomers' test, at Dieppe.

2nd-Dieppe, €27,000, Mdn, 7-26, unraced 2yo, c/g, 7fT, 1:24.20, sf.
BREMONTIER (FR) (c, 2, Ultra {Ire}–Brocottes {Fr} {G1SP-Fr, $154,732}, by Lando {Ger}) raced a shade keenly through the early strides and found a comfortable slot behind the leaders in fourth for the most part. Taking closer order in the straight, the 18-5 second choice was shaken up with 350 metres remaining kept on strongly once edging ahead of Antharis (GB) (Sea The Moon {Ger}) inside the furlong marker to withstand that rival's late rally by a half length, becoming the first winner for his freshman sire (by Manduro {Ger}). Half to a weanling filly by Wootton Bassett (GB), he is the fifth of six foals and second scorer out of G1 Criterium de Saint-Cloud runner-up Brocottes (Fr) (Lando {Ger}), herself a half-sister to the stakes-placed duo Allez Henri (Ire) (Footstepsinthesand {GB}) and Cotes d'Armor (Fr) (Numerous). Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, €13,500. Video, sponsored by TVG.
1ST-TIME STARTER. O-Gerard Augustin-Normand; B-Franklin Finance SA (FR); T-Stephane Wattel.
