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."
