Olympic Glory's Shiffrin Dominates Prix de Conde Rivals

ShiffrinScoop Dyga


Haras d'Etreham's homebred Shiffrin (Ire) (Olympic Glory {Ire}–Scruples, by Pioneerof the Nile) followed up a pair of wins at Clairefontaine with a third on stakes bow in last month's Listed Criterium du Fonds Europeen de l'Elevage and stepped forward to notch a career best in Saturday's G3 Prix de Conde at Chantilly. In command after the initial strides, the 3-1 chance was last to come off the bridle in the straight and kept on strongly under a drive inside the final 300 metres to comfortably hold De Sica (Fr) (Demarchelier {GB}) by 1 1/2 lengths. Gold Index (Ire) (Night Of Thunder {Ire}) finished a neck adrift in third.

“To win my first Group race here at Chantilly, I am almost speechless,” said trainer Nicolas Le Roch after registering a landmark success. “Thanks goes to my team at home and thanks also to Nicolas de Chambure. He is a super boss and I would not be here without him. We always loved this filly, even though she ran moderately first time out, but we kept the faith and all has gone well since. She did all we expected from her and all we had planned. She stays well, she had a great ride and she will come back for the [Oct. 22 G1] Criterium de Saint-Cloud.”

Pedigree Notes

Shiffrin, who becomes the ninth pattern-race winner for her sire, is the second of three foals and lone scorer out of Scruples (Pioneerof The Nile), herself an unraced half to G3 Gallinule S. victor Crossfirehurricane (Kitten's Joy) and Listed Patton S. victrix My Generation (Speightstown). The January-foaled bay's stakes-winning second dam Louvakhova (Maria's Mon), whose descendants include multiple stakes winner Jack And Noah (Fr) (Bated Breath {GB}), is a half-sister to GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf and G1 Poule d'Essai des Pouliches heroine Flotilla (Fr) (Mizzen Mast). Louvakhova is a daughter of G3 Prix Miesque winner Louvain (Ire) (Sinndar {Ire}), herself a half-sister to G1 Haydock Sprint Cup hero G Force (Ire) (Tamayuz {GB}). Scruples has a yearling filly by Belardo (Ire) to come.
