Bated Breath Half-Sister to Kingman Registers Yarmouth Success

3rd at YAR, Mdn, £5,000 Drifters Fish and Chip Shop Maiden Fillies’ S. (8f 3y) Winner: Present Tense (GB), f, 3 by Bated Breath (GB)

By Sean Cronin

3rd-YAR, £5,000, Mdn, 5-3, 3-4yo, f, 8f 3yT, 1:35.62, g/f.

PRESENT TENSE (GB) (f, 3, Bated Breath {GB}–Zenda {GB} {G1SW-Fr, G1SP-Eng & GISP-US, $406,107}, by Zamindar), a debut seventh going an extended mile at Leicester in her only prior start Apr. 7, was sharply into stride and raced on the front end from flagfall in this return. Gaining an edge when stoked up with three-eighths remaining, the 2-1 favourite entered the final furlong with a decisive buffer and was driven out to hold the late thrust of Gakku (GB) (Pivotal {GB}) by a short head. Nothing But Dreams (GB) (Frankel {GB}), a daughter of MG1SW Danedream (Ger) (Lomitas {GB}), was scratched.

Juddmonte’s homebred bay becomes the fourth winner produced by G1 Poule d’Essai des Pouliches heroine Zenda (GB) (Zamindar), who also ran second in the G1 Coronation S. and GI Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup, and is a half-sister to European highweight sophomore and MG1SW sire Kingman (GB) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}) and G3 Tercentenary S. victor Remote (GB) (Dansili {GB}). She is also kin to the 2-year-old colt First Eleven (GB) (Frankel {GB}) and a yearling colt by Frankel (GB). Zenda is a half-sister to Juddmonte stalwart and MG1SW sire Oasis Dream (GB) (Green Desert), and hails from a storied family which includes the top-level winners Wemyss Bight (GB) (Dancing Brave), Beat Hollow (GB) (Sadler’s Wells), New Bay (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}), Reefscape (GB) (Linamix {Fr}), et al. Lifetime Record: 2-1-0-0, £3,235. Video, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.

Frankel’s The Grand Visir Prevails in Yarmouth Unveiling

1st at YAR, Mdn, £15,000 Mark Sumner Golf Pro Shops Of Yarmouth Maiden S. (11f 104y) Winner: The Grand Visir (GB), c, 3 by Frankel (GB)

By Sean Cronin

1st-YAR, £15,000, Mdn, 5-3, 3yo, 11f 104yT, 2:25.79, g/f.

+THE GRAND VISIR (GB) (c, 3, Frankel {GB}–Piping {Ire}, by Montjeu {Ire}) lobbed along in a patient fourth from the outset of this first go. Asked to close on the leaders inside the half-mile pole, the 3-1 chance bounded into second approaching the final eighth and stayed on relentlessly under a late drive to deny Fibonacci (GB) (Galileo {Ire}) by a neck in the dying strides. The €750,000 ARAUG yearling becomes the second scorer, from as many foals to race, produced by an unraced daughter of G2 Prix de Royallieu victress and European highweight Saganeca (Sagace {Fr}), whose five black-type performers are headed by G1 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe-winning sire Sagamix (Fr) (Linamix {Fr}) and G1 Criterium de Saint-Cloud-winning sire Sagacity (Fr) (Highest Honor {Fr}).

Another of Saganeca’s offspring, the stakes-placed Shastye (Ire) (Danehill), produced G1 Epsom Oaks and G1 Preis der Diana runner-up Secret Gesture (GB) (Galileo {Ire}). The Grand Visir is kin to the 2-year-old filly Inthepipe (Ire) (New Approach {Ire}) and a yearling filly by Sea the Stars (Ire). Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, £9,452. Video, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.

Classic Empire Mildly Favored in Derby 143


Classic Empire winning the Arkansas Derby | Coady

John Oxley’s Classic Empire (Pioneerof the Nile) will look to become the third consecutive Eclipse Award-winning juvenile to double up in the GI Kentucky Derby, as he was made the lukewarm 4-1 favorite in what shapes as a wide-open renewal of the Run for the Roses Saturday at Churchill Downs. The $475,000 Keeneland September yearling purchase, impressive in taking out last year’s GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile, has faced adversity this season, finishing a subpar third behind ‘TDN Rising Star’ Irish War Cry (Curlin) in the GII Holy Bull S. Feb. 4 before shipping into Winding Oaks Farm near Ocala to continue his training towards a final Derby prep. That was originally to come in Keeneland’s GII Toyota Blue Grass S. Apr. 8, but he ultimately made the trip to Hot Springs and got home late to annex the GI Arkansas Derby. Classic Empire will be ridden by Julien Leparoux, who will have some decisions to make from gate 14.

Always Dreaming (Bodemeister), the devastating winner of the GI Florida Derby when last seen, shares second favoritism with ‘TDN Rising Star’ McCraken (Ghostzapper), who took the first loss of his career when third to then maiden Irap (Tiznow) in the Blue Grass. Always Dreaming spent the bulk of his time in Florida at the relatively serene Palm Beach Downs training facility, but since arriving at Churchill has been a handful in the mornings. Trainer Todd Pletcher has switched exercise riders and has instituted a set of draw reins in an attempt to harness the colt’s energy. Always Dreaming drew nicely in gate five and is expected to be in the thick of the battle early on.

McCracken, a perfect three-for-three at Churchill Downs, landed gate 15 and will likely take back, angle in and make a run at them late.

Irish War Cry will be available at a generous morning-line quote of 6-1 given his body of work. The New Jersey-bred drilled Gunnevera (Dialed In) by nearly four lengths in the Holy Bull, but stubbed his toe in the GII Fountain of Youth S. Mar. 4, finishing a listless seventh. He bounced back with authority in his latest, a 3 1/2-length success in the GII Wood Memorial S. at Aqueduct Apr. 8. Irish War Cry will have Rajiv Maragh in the saddle for the second time for Kentucky Derby-winning trainer Graham Motion and will try to carve out a trip from the auxiliary gate in 17.

GI Santa Anita Derby winner Gormley (Malibu Moon) drew post 18 at a morning line quote of 15-1.

The field for the 143rd Kentucky Derby:

1 Lookin at Lee (Lookin at Lucky), Lanerie 20-1

2 Thunder Snow (Ire) (Helmet {Aus}), Soumillon 20-1

3 Fast and Accurate (Hansen), Hill 50-1

Blue Point Returns With Pavilion Triumph

4th at ASC, Gr. Stk, £80,000 G3 Merriebelle Stable Pavilion S. (6f) Winner: Blue Point (Ire), c, 3 by Shamardal


Blue Point | Racing Post

By Sean Cronin

Blue Point (Ire) (Shamardal) ran second to Mehmas (Ire) (Acclamation {GB}) in Goodwood’s July 28 G2 Richmond S., in his black-type debut, after opening up with a June 9 Nottingham win and acquiring TDN Rising Star status at Doncaster in his second start July 14. He remained at the forefront of European juvenile form when annexing York’s Aug. 20 G2 Gimcrack S., and closed a commendable freshman campaign with a second to The Last Lion (Ire) (Choisir {Aus}) in Newmarket’s Sept. 24 G1 Middle Park S. and a third behind Churchill (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) in the Oct. 8 G1 Dewhurst S. back at Headquarters last time. Squeezed for room at the break and positioned fourth overall racing in the centre of the track, he inched ever closer from halfway and quickened smartly once shaken up for the lead approaching the final furlong to comfortably account for Harry Angel (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}) by 1 1/2 lengths. Mubtasim (Ire) (Arcano {Ire}), who raced towards the rear initially, ran on well in the closing stages to finish the same margin adrift in third.

Treve’s Sister Off the Mark At Chantilly

3rd at CHY, Mdn, 30000 Prix de Champlatreux (Mdn) (10f) Winner: Terre (Fr), f, 3 by Motivator (GB)


Terre | Scoop Dyga

By Tom Frary

3rd-CHY, €30,000, Mdn, 5-3, 3yo, f, 10fT, 2:08.31, g/s.
TERRE (FR) (f, 3, Motivator {GB}–Trevise {Fr}, by Anabaa), a full-sister to the peerless dual G1 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe heroine Treve (Fr) (Motivator {GB}), Hwt. 3yo-Eur at 11-14f, 2x Hwt. Older Horse-Eur at 11-14f, 2x Hwt. Older Mare-Eur at 11-14f, Hwt. Older Mare-Fr at 9-11f, MG1SW-Fr & G1SP-Eng, $9,459,441, was unlucky when a close-up fourth over a mile at Maisons-Laffitte Apr. 10 and was sent forward this time to quickly establish a narrow lead. Stretching her rivals from the top of the straight, the 8-5 favourite who is also a half to the G2 Prix Greffulhe third Trois Rois (Fr) (Hernando {Fr}), SW & GSP-Fr, $194,694, and Trophee (Fr) (Mr. Sidney), SP-US, $288,515, hit the line with three lengths to spare over Jedi Princess (Ire) (Sea the Stars {Ire}). “She’s a filly I’ve always liked and she ran a nice race at two, but last time a mile was obviously much too short for her and I expected improvement,” trainer Criquette Head-Maarek commented. “She will probably follow the same pattern as her sister and head straight to the [G1 Prix de] Diane [at Chantilly June 18].

” Treve was a relative unknown when she captured that Classic by four lengths from the subsequent G1 Irish Oaks heroine Chicquita (Ire) (Montjeu {Ire}) prior to her exalted exploits at Longchamp. Her dam is a full-sister to the GI Breeders’ Cup Mile-placed sire Tsigane (Fr) from the family of the G1 Prix Saint-Alary winner Treble (Riverman), the champion sprinter Tamarisk (Ire) and also Triptych (Riverman), almost the “Treve” of her time in the eighties and a multiple champion who sits among the post-war greats of her sex. Lifetime Record: 3-1-1-0, €22,200.
