Son Of Wootton Bassett Adds Group 3 To Fine Record
Thursday saw Amilcar (6h Wootton Bassett - Drosia, by King’s Best) gain the fourth Stakes success of his career in the Group 3 Prix de la Porte Maillot at Longchamp.
Racing over seven furlongs, Alessandro and Giuseppe Botti’s charge tracked the leader under Theo Bachelot and was shaken up two furlongs from home. Soon in front, he ran on well approaching the final furlong to win by three parts of a length from Group 1 winner Marianafoot (Footstepsinthesand).
Owned and bred by Emadadein Alhtoushi, the son of Wootton Bassett is the best performer out of Drosia.
