Son Of Grey Lilas Debuts At Compiegne

Lope De Vega | Ballylinch Stud

Observations on the European Racing Scene turns the spotlight on the best European races of the day, highlighting well-pedigreed horses early in their careers, horses of note returning to action and young runners that achieved notable results in the sales ring. Friday's Observations features a son of Group 1 winner Grey Lilas (Ire) (Danehill).

13.55 Compiegne, Debutantes, €27,000, 3yo, c/g, 10fT
GREY LUX (IRE) (Lope De Vega {Ire}) is a son of the G1 Prix du Moulin de Longchamp heroine Grey Lilas  (Ire) (Danehill), whose best progeny to date was the G1 Poule d'Essai des Pouliches, G1 Prix de Diane and G1 Prix d'Ispahan winner Golden Lilac (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}). Like those luminaries, Andre Fabre has charge of the Gestut Ammerland homebred who meets five peers at the track at which the trainer introduced his listed-winning half-brother Golden Guepard (Ire) (Hurricane Run (Ire).

ART MYTHIQUE (IRE) (Australia {GB}) is another Andre Fabre blueblood introduced on the card, being Ballymore Thoroughbred Racing's daughter of the Wildensteins' luminary Aquarelliste (Fr) (Danehill). The triple Group 1-winning Prix de Diane heroine has already produced the G1 Prix Jean Romanet runner-up Ame Bleue (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) and listed scorer Any Time Soon (Ire) (Camelot {GB}) and this May-foaled chestnut has time to add to the family's achievements, as does The Aga Khan's Ashalyka (Fr) (Dariyan {Fr}), a daughter of the dual Group 2 scorer Ashalanda (Fr) (Linamix {Fr}).
