Wootton Bassett Filly Battles For Fourth Stakes Success
Speak Of The Devil (4f Wootton Bassett - Moranda, by Indian Rocket) dug deep to record back-to-back Listed wins in Tuesday’s Prix Tantieme at Saint-Cloud.
Carrying a penalty for last month’s course and distance success, the Frederic Rossi-trained bay was ridden to chase the leader by Stephane Pasquier. Asserting in the straight, she was forced to rally when joined by the short-priced favourite and battled back to prevail by a short head, with a further four and a half lengths back to the third.
It marks a fourth Stakes success overall for the Rashit Shaykhutdinov-owned filly, who has also been Group 1 placed on two occasions. The daughter of Wootton Bassett was bred by Herve Viallon.
