Trainer Francis-Henri Graffard could not hide his excitement after the Camelot filly Pollara (3f Camelot-Brooklyn’s Storm, by Storm Cat) began her racing career in scintillating fashion at Saint-Cloud on Monday.
The €160,000 yearling purchase, bred by Paget Bloodstock, won by two lengths in the colours of Ilse Smits.
“That was a very good start,” said Graffard. “We were pleasantly surprised because we thought the ground might be too testing. They went a good gallop and she accelerated well at the finish.”
“Pierre-Charles Boudot was very happy with her and she is interesting for the future. “
