Barathea Adds French Black-Type
Also in France, former Widden Stud shuttler Barathea (Sadler's Wells-Brocade, by Habitat) added a black-type success when Irish-bred 4YO entire Friston Forest (Barathea-Talented, by Bustino) gained the judge's decision in a 3-way photo-finish to the €52,000 (A$88,000) Listed Prix Scaramouche (3000m) at Chantilly. Friston Forest (ridden by Maxime Guyon for trainer Andre Fabre) scored by a short-neck from fellow Irish-bred 4YO gelding Quartz Jem (Sakhee-Erinys, by Kendor) with a further short-head to US-bred 3YO colt Fully Funded (Aptitude-Fully Invested, by Irish River).
