FRENCH LISTED WIN FOR TATTS IRELAND
18 April 2017
GALOP MARIN (IRE) gained the second black-type success of
his career on Thursday when taking the Listed Prix Rose Or No Hurdle at
Auteuil. Racing prominently, the Dominique Bressou-trained five-year-old began
to extend his advantage from the turn for home and was soon clear of his
rivals. Ci Blue ran on to narrow the winning margin to a length without ever
matching the winner, with the front pair finishing eight lengths ahead of Curly
Basc in third. His previous black-type success came over fences and his latest
victory took his earnings past €110,000.
GALOP MARIN (IRE) cost Agence FIPS €13,000 as a yearling
when sold by Crossogue Stud at the Tattersalls Ireland November NH Sale. Bred
by M Fleming and M Molloy, he is out of a winning half-sister to three Listed
performers, from the family of Grade 1 winner Gravieres.
