Triple group winner Suesa (Ire) (Night of Thunder {Ire}), who most recently ran fourth in the G1 Coolmore Wootton Bassett Nunthorpe S. at York on Aug. 20, will make her next start in the Oct. 3 G1 Qatar Prix de l'Abbaye at ParisLongchamp.

“She, all being well, will run in the Prix de l'Abbaye,” said James Wigan, racing manager to owner George Strawbridge. “I think that she ran a very good race, she was probably on the wrong side of the course.”

“All the speed was on the other side and she had to race on her own, but she was making up ground. I think had she been on the other side she'd have been very close.”

A winner of both her juvenile starts including a French listed race for Georgiana Cabrero and trainer Carlos Laffon-Parias, Suesa was purchased privately by prominent owner/breeder George Strawbridge and transferred to the yard of Francois Rohaut. She added the G3 Prix Sigy at Chantilly on Apr. 20, her 3-year-old bow, and then the G3 Prix Texanita there on May 17. Only eighth in the G1 Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot, the 3-year-old filly returned to the winner's circle in the G2 King George Qatar S. at Goodwood on July 30, her final start before the Nunthorpe.
