Kass Tete (Yeats) Wins At Compiegne

Promising Four-Year-Old Becomes Latest Winner By Yeats

The Gabriel Leenders-trained Kass Tete (4g Yeats – Elucidee, by Vision D’Etat) built on a promising debut to win Monday’s hurdle for four-year-old colts and geldings at Compiegne.

The son of Yeats finished third behind two previous winners at Pau in January, with the winner having subsequently completed a hat-trick of wins. Partnered by Felix de Giles on his second start, the bay chased the leaders for much of the way and was asked to quicken from two out. Pushed along to lead before the final flight, he was ridden out to win by two lengths, with another neck back to previous winner Kappa D’Estruval in third.

The promising four-year-old is the first foal bred by Thierry Cypres out of his homebred mare Elucidee.
