First crop sire CHAMPS ELYSEES enjoyed his third winner yesterday (24th July) when the highly thought of Trip To Paris won by 1¾ lengths at Lingfield.

The colt was bred by Paul and T J Monaghan and is trained by Ed Dunlop on behalf of La Grange Partnership, and on this occasion was ridden by jockey Ryan Moore.

Dunlop said after the race: "...we´ve always liked him, as he works well, and past the winning post he was a long way clear. Ryan liked him."

CHAMPS ELYSEES - a full brother to the leading European sire by blacktype winners DANSILI and to Gr.1 sire Cacique - is now the sire of three winners, one of whom, Avenue Gabriel, also recently placed third in the Silver Flash Stakes Gr.3.
