NEW GROUP WINNER FOR FRANKEL
Homebred Fount (FRANKEL) stepped up to take the Prix de Lieurey Gr.3 at Deauville yesterday (15th August).
She turned the tables on KINGMAN filly Twist 'N' Shake who had previously bested her in the Prix de Bagatelle L. at the same course in July this year.
Teddy Grimthorpe commented: "She has been a progressive
filly, but has taken time to come around. This was a pleasant surprise. Last time, it was Kingman
beating Frankel and this time it's the other way round. It's very
nice for the sire and the dam."
He added: "She did well to win two races in the
spring and we probably threw her into a Group one race too
quickly over a trip that was too far for her. She had come on for her run three weeks ago [Prix de Bagatelle] and we'll have to
look at the program and go for something more serious now."
