Verglas Adds French Black-Type

Friday, 18th June 2010

In France overnight, former West Australian Alwyn Park Stud shuttler Verglas (Highest Honor-Rahaam, by Secreto) added a black-type success when Irish-bred gelding Marceti (Verglas-Darasa, by Barathea) scored by a nose in the €55,000 (A$80,000) Listed Derby De L'Ouest (2400m) for 3YOs at Nantes. Marceti (ridden by Maxime Guyon for trainer Etienne Leenders) defeated the colts Empire Levant (Empire Maker-Orellana, by With Approval) & Royal Menantie (Kendor-Heleniade, by Entrepreneur). Marceti took his record to 2 wins (also including 2009's Listed Prix Des Sablonnets over 1600m at Nantes) & 2 placings (including last start's Derby Du Midi over 2400m at Bordeaux on May 29) from 5 starts.
