French Stakes-Winner for Giant

Blue-blooded entire Eightfold Path (5h Giant’s Causeway x Divine Proportions, by Kingmambo) featured in France on the weekend winning the Listed Grand Handicap de Deauville. A Group III winner in France in 2009, Eightfold Path has struggled to progress since then, but struck better form to take this one mile assignment by three parts of a length. A homebred for the Nirachos family prepared by Pascal Bary, Eightfold Path has won four races and placed five times from 12 starts.
