Fresh off her victory in the Listed Prix La Camargo last Saturday, Chic Colombine (Fr) (Seahenge) has been tasked with the Apr. 14 G3 Prix La Grotte followed by the G1 Poule d'Essai des Pouliches on May 12, according to trainer George Boughey.

The Highclere Thoroughbred Racing colourbearer was fourth in the G3 Oh So Sharp S. in October, and was making her eighth start on Mar. 16.

“She was good, I think the fashion of her win was a bit surprising but it didn't surprise me that she won,” he said of the six-length winner.

“She's done as well as anything over the winter, she was a frame of a horse last year and she's going to go back to France for the French 1000 Guineas trial–the Prix de la Grotte at ParisLongchamp.

“She's come out of her race really good, she's eligible for French premiums and I didn't put her in the English Guineas intentionally as we're working back for the French Guineas.”
