Ageless Cirrus scores third Ganay win

04 May 2015

Corine Barande-Barbe’s superstar gelding Cirrus des Aigles is better than ever at 9! Not seen since his tough fourth in the Hong Kong Cup at Sha Tin on December 14th, the son of Even Top brilliantly defended his memorable 2014 Ganay title yesterday at Longchamp wire-to-wire, leaving recent Prix d'Harcourt winner Al Kazeem two lengths behind him.

Prix Kerjacques: Timoko’s final stopover before the Elitloppet

30 April 2015

A fine line-up for Vincennes’ Prix Kerjacques (Gr 2, 2700m) on Friday evening, where last year’s winner Timoko stopped off before going on to bag the 2014 Elitloppet. So the awesome 12-time Group 1 winner has taken the same path again! Trainer Richard Westerink (photo) explained: “It’s not his prime target as that’s the Elitloppet, but we won’t stop him from winning, of course. We’re testing him with new shoes, with resin at the front and 10-gram irons behind.”

Auteuil preps endorse current 4yo hierarchy

27 April 2015

They now have asserted themselves more than ever as current best 4yo chaser and hurdler as they respectively await the final crowning ceremonies in May (Prix Dufaure, fences) and June (Prix Alain du Breil, hurdles).
