Hennessy Adds French Gr2

Monday, 27th July 2009

In France overnight, deceased Gr1-winning former Coolmore shuttler Hennessy (Storm Cat-Island Kitty, by Hawaii) added a juvenile group success when UK-bred daughter Special Duty (Hennessy-Quest To Peak, by Distant View) scored a 1.5-lengths victory against the males in the €130,000 (A$221,000) Gr2 Prix Robert Papin (1100m) for 2YOs at Maisons-Laffitte. Special Duty (ridden by Stephane Pasquier for trainer Criquette Head-Maarek) defeated the colt Siyouni (Pivotal-Sichilla, by Danehill) & Irish-bred fellow filly Dolled Up (Whipper-Belle De Cadix, by Law Society). At her previous start, Special Duty also finished runner-up in France's Listed Prix Yacowlef (1000m) at Deauville on July 4.
