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...

What's In a Name: Mqse De Sevigne (Ire)

It was so good to hear the Longchamp live commentator call the brilliant winner of the Prix Vanteaux with the full title & name of "Marquise De Sevigne."
