The subject of encouraging home reports, Joyeuse started at 10-11 and initially raced with the type of enthusiasm and vigor which characterised her dam’s own performances. Restrained to race behind the leading quartet, the bay--who sported a hood like her half-sibling Noble Mission (GB) (Galileo {Ire})--moved smoothly into the front line approaching the quarter pole with Tom Queally sitting motionless. Leading with 1 1/2 furlongs remaining, she needed only to be shaken up to assert for an impressive 3 1/4-length verdict over Dancealot (GB) (Lawman {Ire}). Joyeuse is a half-sister to Frankel (GB) (Galileo {Ire}), Horse of the Year, Co-Ch. 2yo Colt, Ch. 3yo Colt & Hwt. Older Horse-Eur, Co-Hwt. 2yo-Colt-Eng, Hwt. 3yo Colt-Eng at 7-9.5f, Hwt. Older Horse-Eng at 7-9.5f & 9.5-11f, MG1SW-Eng, $4,788,744; Noble Mission (GB) (Galileo {Ire}), GSW-Eng, $247,757; and Bullet Train (GB) (Sadler’s Wells), GSW-Eng, $177,615. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, £3,068.
