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 Grade I winner Sophie P (GB) (Bushranger {Ire}).

THE PARENT (GB) (Frankel {GB}) is a son of the GI Gamely S. heroine Sophie P (GB) (Bushranger {Ire}) who makes his debut for Sheikh Mohammed Obaid Al Maktoum and the Richard Hannon stable in an intriguing contest. A 280,000gns Book 1 purchase, the February-foaled bay encounters Amo Racing and Omnihorse Racing's similarly-unraced Omniking (Ire) (Kingman {GB}), a David Loughnane-trained 300,000gns Tattersalls Craven Breeze-Up graduate who is a son of the G1 Prix Ganay third Fate (Fr) (Teofilo {Ire}) related to the champion Pride (Fr) (Peintre Celebre); and Jeff Smith's Newbury third Stormbuster (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}), a full-brother to the G1 Juddmonte International heroine Arabian Queen (Ire) who represents the Andrew Balding stable.
