Kheleyf Adds French Black-Type

Tuesday, 12th June 2012

Former Darley shuttler Kheleyf (Green Desert-Society Lady, by Mr Prospector) added a French juvenile black-type success when unbeaten Irish-bred colt Penny's Picnic (Kheleyf-Zerky, by Kingmambo) maintained his perfect record with a 0.75-length victory in the €55,000 (A$70,000) Listed Prix La Fleche (1000m) for 2YOs at Maisons-Laffitte. Front-running Penny's Picnic (ridden by Thierry Jarnet for trainer Didier Guillemin) defeated fellow Irish-bred colt El Trastolillo (Oratorio-Etaaq, by Sadler's Wells) & the filly To My Valentine (Dyhim Diamond-Lisselan Firefly, by Monashee Mountain). Penny's Picnic was a €30,000 (A$38,000) yearling at the 2011 Arqana October Sale. Overall he now has 3 wins from 3 starts for €56,500 (A$72,000) earnings.
