Son Of Wootton Bassett Makes Winning Debut At Saint Cloud
The Franci-Henri Graffard-trained Millau (3g Wootton Bassett - Sage Melody, by Sageburg) justified strong market support to make a winning debut in Wednesday’s seven furlong maiden at Saint-Cloud.
Sent off favourite for the Prix Phebe, the bay was ridden to make all by Hugo Journiaca and was travelling well turning for home. Ridden out, he held off a number of challengers to win by three parts of a length on the line.
Millau races in the colours of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, who bred the son of Wootton Bassett at his Al Shahania Stud.
