Dubai Destination Adds French Black-Type
Also in France, dual Gr1-winning former shuttler Dubai Destination (Kingmambo-Mysterial, by Alleged) added a black-type success when UK-bred 4YO mare Brasileira (Dubai Destination-Shifting Sands, by Hernando) came from the tail of the field to score a 1.5-lengths victory in the €52,000 (A$67,000) Listed Prix Urban Sea (2000m) for mares 4YO & up at Le Lion d'Angers. Brasileira (ridden by Alexis Badel for trainer Jean-Marie Beguigne) defeated German-bred 5YO mare Amare (Hernando-Amore, by Lando) & US-bred 4YO are Street Secret (Street Cry-Always Awesome, by Awesome Again). Brasileira was a €85,000 (A$109,000) yearling at France's 2009 Arqana October Sale. Overall she now has 2 wins & 6 placings (including 2011's Listed Grand Prix De Nantes over 2400m at Nantes & Listed Prix Occitanie over 1900m at Toulouse) from 9 starts for €76,225 (A$98,000) earnings.
