Nahrain Wins French Gr1 Prix De L'Opera

Tuesday, 4th October 2011

Unbeaten UK-bred 3YO filly Nahrain (Selkirk-Bahr, by Generous) also maintained her perfect record with victory by a neck against older rivals in France’s €350,000 (A$480,000) Gr1 Prix de l’Opera (2000m) for fillies & mares at Longchamp. Nahrain (ridden by Frankie Dettori for trainer Roger Varian) defeated UK-bred 4YO mare Announce (Selkirk-Hachita, by Gone West) & Irish-bred fellow 3YO filly Banimpire (Holy Roman Emperor-My Renee, by Kris S). Nahrain (unraced as a 2YO) now has 4 wins (also including July’s UK Listed Distaff Stakes over 8 furlongs at Sandown Park) from 4 starts for €230,664 (A$316,000) earnings.
