Dr Fong Adds French Gr3

Thursday, 29th October 2009

In France overnight, former Widden Stud shuttler Dr Fong (Kris S-Spring Flight, by Miswaki) added a group success when Irish-bred 3YO filly Celimene (Dr Fong-Lunassa, by Groom Dancer) scored a half-length victory over her older rivals in the €80,000 (A$128,000) Gr3 Prix De Flore (2100m) for fillies & mares at Saint-Cloud. Celimene (ridden by Yann Lerner for trainer Carlos Lerner) defeated favoured fellow 3YO filly Shemiyla (Dalakhani-Shemala, by Danehill) & UK-bred 4YO mare Rainbow Dancing (Rainbow Quest-Danceabout, by Shareef Dancer). Previously this year, Celimene also won April’s Gr3 Prix Penelope (2100m) at Saint-Cloud.
