Myboycharlie's Lastotchka Slays Gladiateur Rivals



In the money in three stakes outings since closing last term with a career high in Saint-Cloud's G3 Prix Belle de Nuit, Jean-Marie Beguigne trainee Lastotchka (Fr) (Myboycharlie {Ire}–Muthla {Fr}, by Muhtathir {GB}) regained the winning thread and doubled her pattern-race haul by dominating the closing stages of Sunday's G3 Prix Gladiateur at ParisLongchamp.

The 16-5 chance was quickly into stride to race second passing the judge first time and found a comfortable rhythm in third along the backstraight. Taking closer order on the home turn before claiming the lead in early straight, she was safely clear approaching the final furlong and stayed on strongly under continued rousting to easily hold closest pursuer Fasol (GB) (Galileo {Ire}) by two lengths. Vert Liberte (Ire) (Muhaarar {GB}) was 1 3/4 lengths away in third, denying Moon Wolf (Fr) (Intello {Ger}) by a nose in a bobbing finish for third. According to jockey Theo Bachelot, Lastotchka lost her off fore shoe soon after the start.

“She is such a sweet and consistent filly, she stays well and proved it on many occasions last season, such as when winning a Group 3 over 14 furlongs at Saint-Cloud,” said Beguigne. “She has been a bit slow to come around and be at her best this season, but her last run in Deauville did her a lot of good. I will let her recover from her efforts today and have her ready again for the [Oct. 29] G1 Prix Royal-Oak [over this course and distance].”

Pedigree Notes
