Getaway Mare Beats The Boys In Listed Chase At Auteuil
Saturday saw Motu Fareone (6m Getaway - Arrive In Style, by King’s Theatre) make a successful step up in class to take the Listed Prix Violon II at Auteuil.
The David Cottin-trained bay was the sole mare in the field and came into the race with four chase wins to her name, including over course and distance. Ridden to chase the leaders by Dylan Ubeda, she leapt into the lead at the fourth last and was last to come off the bridle at the penultimate fence. Ridden out, she kept on well to win by a length, with another five lengths back to the third horse.
Bred by Sean Gorman, Motu Fareone is owned by her trainer with Pierre De Maleissye Melun. The improving daughter of Getaway provides an important update for her half-brother by Order Of St George, who sold for €32,000 at the 2020 foal sales.
