Montjeu Adds France Gr3

Tuesday, 28th October 2008

In France overnight, dual-Derby winning Coolmore sire & former NZ Windsor Park shuttler Montjeu (Sadler's Wells-Floripedes, by Top Ville) added a group success when Irish-bred 3YO daughter Albisola (Montjeu-Mahalia, by Danehill) scored by a neck against older rivals in the €80,000 (A$152,000) Gr3 Prix De Flore (2100m) for fillies & mares at Saint-Cloud. Albisola (ridden by Johan Victoire for trainer Richard Collet) defeated Brazilian-bred Light Green (Blush Rambler-Star Procida, by Procida) & fellow Irish-bred 3YO filly Tres Rapide (Anabaa Blue-Tres Ravi, by Monsun). Prefviously this season Albisola won April's Listed Prix Finlande (1850m) at Longchamp & finished 3rd in both June's Gr2 Prix de Sandringham (1600m) at Chantilly & August's Gr3 Prix de La Nonette (2000m) at Deauville.
