Byword back in winning groove

Byword (5 h Peintre Celebre – Binche) posted a timely reminder of his class with a ready success in the G3 Prix du Chemin de Fer du Nord at Chantilly.

Andre Fabre’s charge enjoyed the biggest success of his career almost exactly a year ago when landing the G1 Prince Of Wales’s Stakes at Royal Ascot and a return to better company is on the cards for the Khalid Abdulla homebred.

His victory continues an excellent spell for Peintre Celebre, who sired recent G2 Prix Hocquart winner Prairie Star (3 c Peintre Celebre – Prairie Runner) and Mighty High (5 g Peintre Celebre – Bernimixa), successful in the G1 Standard Chartered Champions & Chater Cup in Hong Kong on May 29.
