Hippisme: Philomène is a "phenomenon"

2020-09-03T17:27:11.023Z

Born in purple, Philomène met the expectations of her many supporters by winning from her first steps in competition on Thursday



1,625,000 euros.

This is the amount to which the hammer fell on Monday August 19, 2019 during the Arqana Sales in Deauville to validate the sale of

Philomène

.

By paying this very substantial sum for this 18-month-old filly, the Godolphin stable made the top price of its prestigious sales.

An astronomical price but which is explained by its family of champions.

Her dam, Prudenzia, has already produced mares of very high level, such as

Chicquita

, (winner of the Irish Oaks and second in the Prix de Diane 2013) and

Magic Wand

(winner of a Group I in Australia and placed in several Groups I).

“The Godolphin stable acquired it because it has a magnificent pedigree for the races and also with a view to a future career as a brood mare, underlines Lisa-Jane Graffard, representative of the Godolphin team in France. .

The cross was well chosen with the top sire

Dubawi.

She already has a lot going for her.

"

All eyes were therefore on the 8th product of this golden family, this Thursday at the ParisLongchamp racecourse.

This bay filly, as beautiful as she is talented, confirmed all the esteem that her entourage has for her by shining like a competitor who is still very immature.

“It's great that she started out victoriously,” says Lisa-Jane Graffard.

She lay down very well and had a great finishing action.

She still needs to learn and was joking because she came to pick up

Tasmania (

second finish), who was several steps ahead of her.

She was born only in May and comes from a family that progresses with age.

It is most encouraging.

"

A future full of promise

The future looks bright for

Philomène,

who has certainly not yet revealed all of her potential: “She is very 'quality'.

She's been showing interesting ways in the morning for a while.

She exudes class in everything she does.

His trainer, André Fabre, likes him.

This is why it is entered in the Prix Marcel Boussac (Group I), contested on October 4.

Now he will see how she recovers from this race.

He will then make a decision regarding his participation in this renowned event.

"

Philomène

showed a flash of class today in the temple of the gallop.

A big step that can also bring him into the big leagues ...
