First start for Cap Verite Chantilly
A very happy owner yesterday when Cap Verite made her racecourse debut at Chantilly for Nicolas Clement. Bought from the Arqana Breeze-Up 2016 she was unraced as a two year old due to micro chips in both front fetlocks. We operated immediately and gave her a good break under the care of Clement and the team. She was bought as a breeding prospect for us and while in her box it was the half sister to our dam that gave us a big update in Mehmas. Winning two Group 2's and now standing at Stud was a big boost to our page. The race consisted of 4 of the 13 runners holding a Group 1 entry and some big names in the mix. Nicolas was merely looking for a nice run from her as she still had not come in her coat. At a distance of 1900m she missed break, greenness and plenty of kickback had her out the back, going straight to the breeding barn sprang to mind. But instead at the home turn she sprang into action and displayed an exciting turn of foot to finish 7th not hit once by Jockey Grosso. Very much looking forward to where this filly could go!!
