Anabaa Adds French Gr3

Thursday, 24th July 2008

In France overnight, former Widden Stud shuttler Anabaa (Danzig-Balbonella, by Gay Mecene) added a group success when 4YO mare Hapsburg (Anabaa-Magical Hawk, by Silver Hawk) scored by a short-neck in the €80,000 (A$136,000) Gr3 Grand Prix De Vichy (2000m) at Vichy. Hapsburg (ridden by Ioritz Mendizabal for trainer Eric Libaud) defeated UK-bred Kocab (Unfuwain-Space Quest, by Rainbow Quest) & Irish-bred Boris De Deauville (Soviet Star-Logjam, by Royal Academy). Hapsburg was a €100,000 (A$170,000) yearling at the 2005 Deauville Sale; last season she also won France's Listed Prix De Liancourt (2100m) at Longchamp.
