High Chaparral Adds French Gr3

Tuesday, 5th May 2009

Also in France overnight, NZ Windsor Park's Derby-winning Coolmore shuttler & 6-time Gr1 victor High Chaparral (Sadler's Wells-Kasora, by Darshaan) added a group success (plus 3rd-placing) when Irish-bred 4YO entire Magadan (High Chaparral-Molasses, by Machiavellian) scored a 2-lengths victory in the €80,000 (A$149,000) Gr3 Prix D'Hedouville (2400m) for 4YOs & up at Longchamp. Magadan (also ridden by Anthony Crastus for trainer Elie Lellouche) defeated UK-bred 5YO entire Coastal Path (Halling-Coraline, by Sadler's Wells) & Irish-bred 4YO mare Winkle (High Chaparral-Bernique, by Affirmed). Magadan was a €120,000 (A$223,000) weanling at the 2005 Goffs November Sale & now has 3 wins (also including last start's Listed Prix Lord Seymour over 2400m at Longchamp on April 12) & a placing (in 2008's Gr1 Grand Prix De Paris over 2400m at Longchamp) from 6 starts.
