Tuesday, 4th October 2011

European Horse-Of-The-Year & 7-time Gr1-winning former shuttler Rock Of Gibraltar (Danehill-Offshore Boom, by Be My Guest) added a French group success when Irish-bred 4YO mare Sea Of Heartbreak (Rock Of Gibraltar-Top Forty, by Rainbow Quest) scored a half-length victory in the €130,000 (A$178,000) Gr2 Prix De Royallieu (2500m) for fillies & mares at Longchamp. Sea Of Heartbreak (ridden by Olivier Peslier for trainer Roger Charlton) defeated Irish-bred 3YO filly Miss Crissy (Verglas-Seracina, by Nashwan) & UK-bred 4YO mare Modeyra (Shamardal-Zahrat Dubai, by Unfuwain). Sea Of Heartbreak now has 6 wins (also including July’s UK Listed Chalice Stakes over 12 furlongs at Newbury) & 4 placings (including September’s UK Gr3 Arc Trial Stakes over 11 furlongs at Newbury, June’s UK Listed Warwickshire Oaks over 11 furlongs at Warwick & May’s UK Gr3 Dahlia Stakes over 9 furlongs at Newmarket) from 14 starts for €145,305 (A$199,000) earnings.
