Blue Point Reaches Milestone 50 Winners

Kildangan Stud's first-season sire sensation Blue Point (Ire) hit a remarkable new high on Tuesday when his daughter Word's Out (Ire) became his 50th individual winner at Deauville. Sixth on debut at Chantilly last month, the Andre Fabre-trained Godolphin homebred raced towards the rear early. Delivered with perfect timing by Mickael Barzalona to overhaul Tazara (Ire) (Blue Point {Ire}) in the final strides, the 7-1 shot had a neck to spare at the line for the landmark win. The dam Voice Of Truth (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}), who was sold by Godolphin...

Intello's Junko Dominates Munich Feature

Alain and Gerard Wertheimer's Junko (GB) (Intello {Ger}--Lady Zuzu, by Dynaformer), who hit the board in July's G1 Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud earlier this term, encountered just three rivals in Sunday's 12-furlong G1 Grosser Allianz Preis von Bayern at Munich and made virtually all to claim a career high in Europe's final Group 1 contest of the season. Last term's G3 Prix Noailles and this term's G3 Prix de Reux victor, third in ParisLongchamp's Oct. 15 G2 Prix du Conseil de Paris when last seen, was uncomfortable with an early...

Edouard de Rothschild's homebred Mqse De Sevigne (Fr) (Siyouni {Fr}) looks likely to continue her travels with an intended next start in the GI Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf at Santa Anita. A dual Group 1 winner this season, over a mile in the Prix Rothschild and 10 furlongs in the Prix Jean Romanet, the four-year-old was runner-up to Inspiral (GB) on Saturday in the Sun Chariot S. on her first start outside her native France.

Newmarket: Inspiral Ready for Marquise Sun Chariot Showdown

Four-times group 1 winners who boast two editions of Deauville's G1 Prix Jacques le Marois are rare commodities, so Saturday's G1 Sun Chariot S. is all the richer for the presence of Cheveley Park Stud's Inspiral (GB) (Frankel {GB}) who could be Frankie's 500th Newmarket winner if all goes to plan. First, they will have to master one of those big improvers that Andre Fabre has aimed at his favourite track, and Baron Edouard De Rothschild's Mqse De Sevigne (Ire) (Siyouni {Fr}) showed distinct appetite for battle in both Deauville's...

   Up to a mile for the first time in Friday's G3 Prix Thomas Bryon Jockey Club de Turquie at Saint-Cloud, Baron Edouard De Rothschild's TDN Rising Star Alcantor (Fr) (New Bay {GB}) made light work of the test to put himself to the forefront of the year's home-trained juveniles. Successful here and at Chantilly either side of a third to Havana Cigar (GB) (Havana Grey {GB}) over a six-furlong trip that was too sharp at Chantilly in July, the Andre Fabre trainee was always in his comfort zone tagging...

Le Havre's Casapueblo A New 'TDN Rising Star' At Chantilly

Godolphin's €130,000 Arqana October acquisition Casapueblo (Ire) (Le Havre {Ire}--Uruguay {Ire}, by Authorized {Ire}) justified 7-5 favouritism by overcoming traffic issues and was elevated to the 'TDN Rising Star' ranks with a taking display in Wednesday's Prix de la Maniguette at Chantilly. The eventual winner lobbed along in third through steady early stages, but slipped to fourth when brake-checked and impeded approaching halfway in this debut. Full of run along the rail when encountering heavy traffic passing the quarter-mile marker, he found an open lane inside the final 300 metres...

Al Shaqab Racing's Place Du Carrousel (Ire) (Lope De Vega {Ire}), already a Group 1 winner in last year's G1 Prix de l'Opera, defeated defending champion Iresine (Fr) (Manduro {Ger}) by a neck to take Sunday's G2 Qatar Prix Foy at ParisLongchamp. The latter was a half-length to the good of 2022 G1 Deutsches Derby and G1 Grosser Dallmayr-Preis Bayerisches Zuchtrennen hero Sammarco (Ire) (Camelot {GB}) in third. The 4-year-old filly was the 13-5 second choice behind her G1 Prix Ganay conqueress Iresine at 1-2. Content to race midfield as...

Too Darn Hot's Bauhinia A New 'TDN Rising Star' In France

Godolphin's G1 Prix Marcel Boussac nominee Bauhinia (Ire) (Too Darn Hot {GB}--Desert Blossom {Ire}, by Shamardal) justified that lofty entry and earned a 'TDN Rising Star' rosette with a taking debut display in Thursday's Prix de la Cascade at ParisLongchamp. Racing a shade keenly under a firm grip through halfway in this one-mile debutantes' test, the 23-10 favourite loomed large hard on the steel passing the quarter-mile marker and quickened stylishly under mild coaxing once seizing control approaching the final furlong to easily account for Cetera (Ire) (Nathaniel {Ire}) by...
