The Revenant to Seek Soft Ground


The Revenant | Scoop Dyga

Group 1 winner The Revenant (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}), who ran fourth in the G2 Prix du Muguet at Saint-Cloud on May 1, will appear in either the May 30 G1 Prix d'Ispahan at ParisLongchamp or the G1 Queen Anne S. at Royal Ascot on June 15. A winner of both the G2 Prix Daniel Wildenstein on Oct. 3 and the G1 Queen Elizabeth II S. on Oct. 17, the gelding ran third in the G3 Prix Edmond Blanc in his seasonal opener on Apr. 3.

“He's come out of the race well,” said the Chantilly-based Francis-Henri Graffard. “He had his Group 1 penalty and the ground was too fast, but he was in good form and he ran a very good race.

“He's entered in the Queen Anne and he will be entered in the d'Ispahan, but I think he will be good to have his soft ground wherever he goes.”
