Prix Rothschild Next For Falmouth Heroine Prosperous Voyage


Ralph Beckett | Tattersalls

Group 1 winner Prosperous Voyage (Ire) (Zoffany {Ire}) is headed to the G1 Prix Rothschild in August, according to Jamie McCalmont, who is the racing manager to part-owner Marc Chan. Second to Inspiral (GB) (Frankel {GB}) in the G1 Fillies' Mile at two, the Ralph Beckett trainee filled that spot again in the G1 1000 Guineas in the wake of Cachet (Ire) (Aclaim {Ire}) on May 1. She weakened to 10th in the G1 Coronation S. at Royal Ascot once again behind Inspiral, but bounced back to defeat that foe in the G1 Falmouth S. for a new career high on July 8.

McCalmont said, “All is good with Prosperous Voyage and we're heading to Deauville on Aug. 2 for the Prix Rothschild.

“The Sun Chariot is not until the second half of October, so I don't think we're going to wait that long. I would hope she'll have at least one more run if not two.

“For sure she definitely handles the track at Newmarket very well, so you could see why that [Sun Chariot] would be the long-term aim.”
