Camelot Colt Dances Home At Compiegne
Ballet Russe (3c Camelot - Seatone, by Mizzen Mast) built on a promising debut last month to run out an impressive winner of the Prix de Verberie at Compiegne on Tuesday.
An eye-catching second over ten furlongs first time out, the Andre Fabre-trained colt stepped up to twelve furlongs on his latest start and was once again partnered by Pierre-Charles Boudot. He raced keenly in the early stages towards the back of the field and cruised forward in the straight, leading a furlong and a half from home. Striding clear, he scored by an effortless four lengths.
Bred by Lynch Bages and Camas Park Stud, Ballet Russe is owned by Michael Tabor, Derrick Smith and Mrs S. Magnier. A 300,000gns yearling, he is a three-parts brother to Australian Listed performer Romanesque (Montjeu), out of a winning half-sister to dual Grade 1 winner Senure.
