WOOD FLOWERS CONTINUE TO BLOOM

Clairefontaine, Friday

La Renaissance La Bessin Prize – -.fr – Perrault Prize (Class 2)

WOOD FLOWERS CONTINUE TO BLOOM

Flowers of the Woods (Waldgeist) continues to forge a future for herself over long distances after her victory in the Prix Perrault (Class 2) on Friday over 2,900m at Clairefontaine. The Godolphin representative claims the second success of her young career, in three starts. She had the good trip, in a race led by Kalet (Le Havre), who led in her rhythm. A little overwhelmed in the final turn, Fleurs des Bois then got going again, placing a long acceleration at the entrance to the straight, before changing legs 250m from the post to go and find Kalet, who did not let go, and take a header on the post. Wasabi (Soldier’s Call), who was well back early before being able to sneak along the rail on the final turn, briefly gave an illusion before levelling off and finishing third, four and a half lengths behind.

To the courage

Winner over 2,400m at Saint-Cloud for her debut, Fleurs des Bois then finished third in the Prix Diatome (Class 2) over 3,000m at Saint-Cloud, finishing well after taking a little time to get going. She certainly has a great future to create for herself over long distances. Louise Bénard, Godolphin’s representative in France, told us: “Mickaël Barzalona’s feelings are that she wins because she is very tough, she does it with courage. We are very happy! She had been entered in the Prix de Thiberville (L) but Mr Fabre thought it more appropriate to go for a Class 2. Fleurs des Bois has an entry in the Prix Minerve (Gr3). We will see if she goes there to be tested at a higher level or not, if we find a Class 1 and/or a Listed. Her trainer will decide. She needs distance, that’s for sure.”

A strain with good holding elements

Bred by Normandie Stud Limited, Fleurs des Bois was purchased for 125.00
