Kendargent Filly Perfect in Deauville’s Prix Six Perfections


See The Rose | Scoop Dyga

Andre Fabre incumbent See The Rose (Ire) (Kendargent {Fr}) got up late to prevail by a nose when posting a June 19 debut score tackling 5 1/2 furlongs at Chantilly, doubling up in a July 12 conditions heat over six at Deauville last time, and she made it a perfect three-for-three in Saturday’s G3 Prix Six Perfections Sky Sports Racing back at the Normandy venue. Stalking the pace set by Wedding Dance (Ire) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}) after an alert getaway in this first try at seven furlongs, the 7-5 favourite was nudged along to launch her challenge off the home turn and kept on well under mild coaxing once gaining a slender advantage at the eighth pole to deny that rival by 3/4-of-a-length for a first black-type rosette. Coeursamba (Fr) (The Wow Signal {Ire}) ran on well from off the pace to finish a neck adrift in third.

“See The Rose is a lovely filly, she is sweet to be around and easy to train,” said trainer Andre Fabre, who saddled stablemate and subsequent G1 Cheveley Park S. third Tropbeau (GB) (Showcasing {GB}) to win this event last year. “She has class and will return here in the [G2] Prix du Calvados. So far she is the carbon copy of [subsquent Calvados winner] Tropbeau.”

See The Rose, a daughter of the dual stakes-placed Xaarienne (GB) (Xaar {GB}), is the sixth of seven foals and one of four winners from as many runners for her dam. She hails from the family of MG1SW G1 Poule d’Essai des Poulains-winning champion L’Emigrant (The Minstrel) and G1SP G2 Great Voltigeur S. victor Zalazl (Roberto) and the February-foaled bay becomes the third stakes performer for Xaarienne. She is a full-sister to Listed Prix Francois Boutin victor Xaarino (Fr) and G3 Prix de Cabourg placegetter Mont Kiara (Fr) and half to a yearling filly by Lope de Vega (Ire). Xaarienne in herself kin to Sablonniere (Fr) (Verglas {Ire}), who in turn produced G3 Prix de Ris-Orangis victor King Malpic (Fr) (King’s Best) and last month’s Listed Prix Ridgway winner Dream Works (Fr) (Wootton Bassett {GB}).
