Prix ​​de Royallieu Awarded to Group 1 Sea La Rosa

Miracles happen when owner Christopher Tsui arrives at Longchamp. We saw it again on October 1 at ParisLongchamp, when we were also able to get a final look at an Australian racing superstar.

For connections of Verry Elleegant a disappointing week that couldn’t have been better as the 11-time winner of group 1 beat only three of nine competitors in the Qatar Prix de Royallieu (G1) for the Tsui family’s Sunderland Holding trained by William Haggas . Sea La Rosa .

Followed by a double of group 2 win with first win at top level with longer score Flowers Jannah , the British racing driver under the leadership of Tom Marquand still maintains the ParisLongchamp tradition of her family. King Sea The Stars won the 2009 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe (G1) while his Urban Sea dam landed Arc 1993, and Sea Of Class, another daughter owned by Tsui of Sea The Stars, is an unlucky second arc was Enabled four years ago.

William Haggas was disappointed on that occasion but won this time, leaving the winning owner overjoyed.

“It’s great to be back at Longchamp at the end of the Arc,” said Tsui. “This meeting has always been good for us, and it’s always been very emotional. I can tell you my heart was racing!”

There wasn’t much cheer for the people associated with Verry Elleegant. Earlier in the week, they were upset that she couldn’t get a spot in the Arc, but even in this smaller company, the 7-year-old hasn’t been able to knock out racer Mark Zahra.

Zahra said: “The situation today is difficult to get a good guide on her. “They weren’t galloping strongly, so by the time I went out and found the obvious vacancy, they were gone and gone. I think they’re looking at Ascot and I think she deserves another one. another chance. How much longer she has left, I don’t know.”

When asked if Verry Elleegant would continue to attend the Qipco British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes (G1) or return home after his retirement, coach Francis Graffard did not commit.

“Everything we didn’t want happened,” Graffard said. “She was in traffic, stuck on the tracks, and poor Mark couldn’t do anything. Everything went against us.”
