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...

Easy For New Bay's Alcantor In The Thomas Bryon

   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...

Siyouni's Mqse De Sevigne Leaves It Late In The Jean Romanet

Reinvigorated by her career-best win in the G1 Prix Rothschild at the start of this August Festival, Baron Edouard De Rothschild's Mqse De Sevigne (Ire) (Siyouni {Fr}--Penne {Fr}, by Sevres Rose {Ire}) produced a dramatic late surge to deny Via Sistina (Ire) (Fastnet Rock {Aus}) for a notable Deauville double in Sunday's G1 Sumbe Prix Jean Romanet. Switched off in last by Alexis Pouchin, the Andre Fabre-trained 7-2 second favourite handed the 6-5 market-leader first run in early straight but had the material to get to her and have her...

The Belle Epoque Continues for Meautry

'Depuis 1875' is proudly printed under the name of Haras de Meautry on the website of the renowned French nursery, and longevity is a key factor at the Rothschild family's stud in varied respects.  For almost 150 years, the  breeding of Thoroughbreds has taken place at the farm at Touques, just outside Deauville, which was at one stage part of an even greater operation and included land which is now occupied by an international showjumping centre in Deauville itself. The Rothschild family has been intrinsically linked not just to Normandy,...

Surprise Rothschild Win For Siyouni's Mqse De Sevigne As Fabre Dominates

Baron Edouard De Rothschild's Mqse De Sevigne (Ire) (Siyouni {Fr}--Penne {Fr}, by Sevres Rose {Ire}) had uninspiring credentials heading into the race carrying her owner-breeder's family name at Deauville on Sunday, but what she lacked in credible form was made up for by the fact that she is under the care of Andre Fabre. Saddling a one-two in the first group 1 of the Deauville August festival for good measure as the French fillies came to the fore, the Chantilly maestro was bringing the half-sister to the G1 Grand Prix...

The seven-furlong contest has been used as a springboard to higher by others, most notably subsequent Group 1 winners Glen Shiel (GB) (Pivotal {GB}) and Arapaho (Fr) (Lope De Vega {Ire}). Alcantor is the second Rising Star for his sire...
