Fastnet Rock Adds France Gr2

Monday, 17th October 2016

At Chantilly in France overnight, Coolmore's Gr1-winning son of Danehill and former champion Australian sire Fastnet Rock (Danehill-Piccadilly Circus, by Royal Academy) added a European Group success when 4YO Irish-bred entire One Foot In Heaven (Fastnet Rock-Pride, by Peintre Celebre) scored by 0.2 length for trainer Alain De Royer Dupre in the Gr2 Prix du Conseil de Paris (12 furlongs) for 3YO+, over 4YO entire Tiberian (Tiberius Caesar-Toamasina, by Marju) & 7YO gelding Now We Can (Martillo-Notre Dame, by Acatenango). Coming off an excellent sixth in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, One Foot In Heaven improved his record to 6 wins (including the Gr2 Prix de Chantilly, Gr3 Prix d'Hedouville & Listed Prix Lord Seymour) and 1 placing from 11 starts. The beautifully bred One Foot In Heaven is the fourth foal to race for former champion French mare Pride, winner of three Gr1 races namely the Prix de Saint-Cloud, British Champion Stakes & Hong Kong Cup. She was also runner-up to Rail Link in the 2006 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. One Foot In Heaven is also a direct descendent of influential US mare Miss Disco, best known as the dam of champion racehorse and legendary breed-shaping sire Bold Ruler.
