High Chaparral Adds French Black-Type
Also in France overnight, NZ Windsor Park's Derby-winning Coolmore shuttler & 6-time Gr1 victor High Chaparral (Sadler's Wells-Kasora, by Darshaaan) added a black-type success when the Aga Khan's Irish-bred filly Winkle (High Chaparral-Bernique, by Affirmed) scored a 2-lengths victory against her male rivals in the €55,000 (A$105,000) Listed Prix Vulcain (2500m) for 3YOs at Deauville. Front-running favourite Winkle (ridden by Christophe Soumillon for trainer Mikel Delzangles) defeated the colts Angelo Minny (Red Ransom-Bielska, by Deposit Ticket) & UK-bred Drill Sergeant (Rock Of Gibraltar-Dolydille, by Dolphin Street). Last month Winkle finished 3rd against older rivals in France's Listed Prix Des Tourelles (2400m) at Chantilly.
