Tillys Chilli (Excelebration) winning at Navan

More black-type success for Excelebration

Tilly’s Chilli (4f Excelebration-Scotch Bonnet, by Montjeu) brought another stakes victory for Excelebration in France on Saturday.

Trained by Henri Devin for Marion Goodbody, the four-year-old put in a career-best effort to win the Listed Grand Prix de Lyon at Lyon Parilly by a length.

Bred by Rick Barnes’ Grangecon Stud, Tilly’s Chilli was a three-time winner when trained by Jessica Harrington in Ireland last year (pictured winning at Navan).
