Godolphin Newbloods Intrigue on Tuesday


Sea The Stars | The Aga Khan Studs

Observations on the European Racing Scene turns the spotlight on the best European races of the day, highlighting well-pedigreed horses early in their careers, horses of note returning to action and young runners that achieved notable results in the sales ring. Tuesday's Observations features a pair of Godolphin bluebloods at Leicester and Kempton.

1.37 Leicester, Novice, £10,000, 2yo, 8f 53yT
PERSEUS WAY (IRE) (Sea the Stars {Ire}) is one of two notable Godolphin newcomers on the day, being out of a half-sister to this year's G1 2000 Guineas runner-up Master of the Seas (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) and to the smart Latharnach (Iffraaj {GB}) and Falls of Lora (Ire) (Street Cry {Ire}). Charlie Appleby has charge of the March-foaled chestnut, who encounters The Eclipse Partnership's fellow newcomer Elena's Gift (GB) (Frankel {GB}), a Ralph Beckett-trained half-sister to the G1 Prix Morny and G1 Middle Park S. hero Reckless Abandon (GB) (Exchange Rate), the smart Best Approach (GB) (New Approach {Ire}) and this year's G3 Prix Paul de Moussac winner Erasmo (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}).


5.30 Kempton, Mdn, £6,800, 2yo, 7f (AWT)
SENSE OF POWER (IRE) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}) is the second debutante from Godolphin's Charlie Appleby stable to fire the imagination on the afternoon, being a €330,000 Goffs November Foal graduate whose dam is a half to the GIII Appleton S. winner and promoted GI Gulfstream Park Turf H. second All Included (Include) and the GII Honeymoon Handicap S. scorer Sarach (Arch). He encounters Shadwell's debut fifth Laasudood (War Front), a Sir Michael Stoute-trained son of the GI Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf and GI Flower Bowl Invitational heroine Lahudood (GB) (Singspiel {Ire}) whose half-sister Aghareed (Kingmambo) has produced the Sea the Stars (Ire) duo of Baaeed (GB) and Hukum (Ire).
