The good news is already out, but worth repeating: Bleu Astral was an easy winner today in Compiegne. Great ride from Alexis Badel, who judged the pace well and won from the front. We knew Bleu had the ability, but he needs to be settled enough to use it, and he was today. Bravo to the team, and to all the members of High Street!
Just home from Vichy with our Listed winner Ella Diva! She was fabulous and is now undefeated in all of her four starts. Wonderful filly – huge thanks to Derek Lodge, her owner, and to our team. Great work that has paid off for our first black-type win, the Prix des Jouvenceaux et des Jouvencelles!
It seems the photo might be cut off, but the horse winning today at Longchamp is the famous Hard Way. Christophe Lemaire gave us an absolutely fabulous ride to give me my first winner at Longchamp.
