Friday, 9th April 2010

Also in France overnight, dual Derby-winning Coolmore shuttler & 6-time Gr1 victor High Chaparral (Sadler's Wells-Kasora, by Darshaan) added a group success when Irish-bred daughter Joanna (High Chaparral-Secrete Marina, by Mujadil) scored a half-length victory in the €80,000 (A$120,000) Gr3 Prix Imprudence (1400m) for 3YO fillies at Maisons-Laffitte. Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum's Joanna (ridden by Christophe Soumillon for trainer Jean-Claude Rouget) defeated UK-bred duo Evading Tempete (Dubai Destination-Late Summer, by Gone West) & Special Duty (Hennessy-Quest To Peak, by Distant View). Last year as a 2YO, Joanna also won both France's Gr3 Prix Du Calvados (1400m) at Deauville & Italy's Listed Premio Vittorio Crespi (1200m) at San Siro, as well as placin in both France's Gr1 Prix Marcel Boussac-Criterium Des Pouliches (1600m) at Longchamp & Italy's listed Premio Alessandro Perrone (1100m) at Capannelle.
