GRADE 2 EXACTA FOR CALIFET
18 April 2017
Boardsmill Stud stallion Califet sired the first two home in
Saturday’s Grade 2 Prix Leon Rambaud, the feature event on the Auteuil card.
Dual Grade 1 winner BLUE DRAGON made all under David Cottin, jumping well
throughout the two mile and three and a half furlong contest, moving to the
outside rail in the straight, where he raced alone. Racing clear, he won by 12
lengths, with fellow son of Califet, Solway, nearest at the finish. This was
the eight-year-old’s eighth Graded win for Guy Cherel. His sire commands a
career-high fee of €6,000 at Boardsmill Stud this season.
