Half-Sister To Sottsass Earns TDN Rising Star Rosette At Deauville

Snowpark wins on debut | Scoop-Dyga


Ecurie des Monceaux's unraced 2-year-old filly Snowpark (Fr) (Dubawi {Ire}–Starlet's Sister {Ire}, by Galileo {Ire}), a half-sister to Sottsass (Fr) (Siyouni {Fr}), went postward at odds of 37-10 for Thursday's Prix de Hotot-En-Auge over one mile at Deauville and returned home with a 'TDN Rising Star' rosette after producing an impressive closing burst in the debutantes' heat. Snowpark was swiftly into stride from the inside stall and raced in a close-up third through the early stages. Shuffled down to fifth soon after turning for home, she was shaken up approaching the final furlong and quickened stylishly under mild urging in the closing stages to deny Kamiyah (Ire) (Frankel {GB}), herself a half-sister to G1 Prix Jacques Le Marois-winning sire Al Wukair (Ire) (Dream Ahead), by a half-length nearing the line.

Snowpark is the seventh of nine foals and sixth scorer from as many runners produced by a full-sister to G3 Prix Cleopatre victrix Leo's Starlet (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}). The April-foaled bay's dam Starlet's Sister (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) is also a half-sister to stakes-winning GI Clement L Hirsch H. runner-up and G1 Prix Saint-Alary third Anabaa's Creation (Ire) (Anabaa), herself the dam of the stakes-winning Create A Dream (Oasis Dream {GB}). Starlet's Sister had previously thrown G1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, G1 Prix du Jockey Club and G1 Prix Ganay hero Sottsass (Fr) (Siyouni {Fr}), MGISW US champion Sistercharlie (Ire) (Myboycharlie {Ire}) and MGSW GI Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf and GI Flower Bowl S. runner-up My Sister Nat (Fr) (Acclamation {GB}). She is also the dam of a yearling colt by Siyouni (Fr), a full-brother to Sottsass who was knocked down for a sale-topping €2.1-million at this year's Arqana August sale, and a colt foal by Siyouni (Fr).
