Lagardere For Angel Bleu


Ralph Beckett | Tattersalls

Marc Chan's Angel Bleu (Fr) (Dark Angel {Ire}), not seen since winning the G2 Vintage S. at Glorious Goodwood on July 27, will resurface in the G1 Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere on Oct. 3 at ParisLongchamp.

A progressive colt for trainer Ralph Beckett, Angel Bleu broke his maiden at Salisbury on Apr. 25 before taking a Pontefract conditions race on May 28, and he won the Vintage just three days after finishing second in the Listed Pat Eddery S. at Ascot.

“All being well he'll head for the Lagardere on Arc weekend–that's the plan,” said Beckett. “I think Longchamp will suit him really well. We had aspirations to go to The Curragh for the [G1] National S., but the ground was so quick over there and as a result we thought we'd hang on for Longchamp and hope it rained.”
