The high-class Call The Wind went one better
than last year to score in the Prix Kergorlay Gr.2, adding to his
previous success at Deauville this year in the Prix de Barbeville Gr.3.
The British raider Collide (FRANKEL) set off at the head of affairs
in yesterday’s contest, quickly opening up a big lead on
Call The Wind under Olivier Peslier and Ashrun as
the field progressed. The order changed little
until the home straight, where Call The Wind accelerated
smoothly into the lead with over 400m to go. Although Ashrun
tried hard in second, the winner never looked like being caught
and had a length and a half in hand at the line. Windstoss.
Trainer Freddy Head commented after the race: "Call The Wind always runs his race, he has never let
us down and won well as the good horse that he is. The season
is not finished yet so we might bounce back in the [Prix du] Cadran [Gr.1 ParisLongchamp]."
