Lord Shanakill Wins Fr Gr1 Prix Jean Prat at Chantilly
In France, the UK-trained colt Lord Shanakill (Speightstown-Green Room, by Theatrical) scrambled home by a head in the €400,000 (A$702,000) Gr1 Prix Jean Prat (1600m) for 3YOs at Chantilly. Lord Shanakill (ridden by Jim Crowley for trainer Karl Burke) defeated fellow colts Oiseau De Feu (Stravinsky-Slewadora, by Seattle Slew) & Irian (Tertullian-Iberi, by Rainbow Quest). Lord Shanakill (pipped a nose in the Gr1 Dewhurst Stakes last season) gave trainer Karl Burke his 1st Gr1 winner. Looking at where to aim the colt next, Burke told racingpost.com, "The Prix Jacques le Marois is a possibility and the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood, they are the races to consider."
