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. Wednesday’s Insights features an expensive son of Curlin.
4.35 Kempton, Novice, £6,000, 2yo, 7f (AWT)
DESERT PEACE (Curlin) is the first foal out of the stakes winner Stoweshoe (Flatter), a full-sister to full-sister to the GI Humana Distaff S. heroine Taris. Bought for $1.3million by Godolphin at the Keeneland September Sale, the February-foaled bay is introduced by Charlie Appleby in a 12-runner affair.
