Tilsit Added To Turkish Ranks


Tilsit | Douglas DeFelice/Jockey Club of Saudi Arabia

The Jockey Club of Turkey has purchased this year's G2 Summer Mile victor Tilsit (First Defence) for stud duty. The announcement follows on the back of the news on Thursday that the Club had bought Battleground (War Front) and Epaulette (Aus) (Commands {Aus}) to join its roster.

Tilsit is out of Multilingual (GB) (Dansili {GB}), an unraced half-sister to Kingman (GB) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}) and a daughter of G1 Poule d'Essai des Pouliches scorer Zenda (GB) (Zamindar). It is also the family of prolific sire Oasis Dream (GB).

Trained by Charlie Hills, Tilsit won last year's G3 Thoroughbred S. in his third start and took this year's Summer Mile after finishing second in the G1 Prix d'Ispahan.
