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 2-lengths victory in the €130,000 (A$189,000) Gr2 Prix De Sandringham (1600m) for 3YO fillies at Chantilly. Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum's Joanna (ridden by Christophe Soumillon for trainer Jean-Claude Rouget) defeated German-bred Kali (Areion-Kahlua, by Dashing Blade) & Evaporation (Red Ransom-Polygreen, by Green Tune).
