Fantastic Light Adds French Black-Type
European 2001 Horse-Of-The-Year & 6-time Gr1-winning Darley shuttler Fantastic Light (Rahy-Jood, by Nijinsky) added a French black-type success when Irish-bred 4YO mare Light Impact (Fantastic Light-Ganga, by Generous) gained the decision in a 3-way photo-finish to the €52,000 (A$88,000) Listed Prix Panacee (2400m) for fillies & mares at Toulouse. Light Impact (ridden by Gregory Benoist for trainer Carlos Laffon-Parias) scored by a neck from 3YO filly Folle Allure (Poliglote-Irish Arms, by Irish River) with a further neck to UK-bred 3YO filly Epic Similie (Lomitas-Epitome, by Nashwan). Last season Light Impact finished 3rd in France's Listed Prix De Thiberville (2400m) at Longchamp; overall she now has 2 wins & 3 placings from 9 starts for £44,794 (A$94,000) earnings.
