Son Of Sioux Nation Rallies For Maiden Victory
A promising third last month, the Edouard Monfort-trained bay was ridden to make all by Leo Roussel as he stepped up to nine furlongs for the first time. Briefly headed a furlong from home, he battled back to lead by a neck on the line, with the leading pair drawing four and a half lengths clear of the field.
Owned by Sarl Group KR, Soul Of The Nation was bred by Haras du Logis Saint Germain and is closely related to three-time winner Wind Of Change (No Nay Never).
He becomes a 34th individual winner by Sioux Nation, whose first crop boast a strike rate of over 49%, as well as two Group winners and five Group performers.
