Winning start for Champs Elysees progeny

Winning start for Champs Elysees progeny

 Champs Elysees progeny made the best possible start to the point-to-point sphere, when his only runner to date, Fullasthesea, made an impressive winning debut for the Michael Goff yard at Maralin on Saturday.

The Francis Fenlon-owned gelding made his move to pick up the lead on the approach to the second-last fence, before lengthening his advantage to the last to score impressively by twenty lengths in the hands of up-and-coming rider Shane Fitzgerald.  Having cost a mere €7,500 at the Tatersalls Ireland Derby sale, it will be very interesting to see what figure he will leave connections if we are to see him pass through a sales ring in the coming weeks.

This fourteen-year-old sire is by Danehill and was a three-time Group one 1 winner as well as being a full-brother to two Group one sires in Dansili and Cacique.

Having previously stood in the UK before joining the Coolmore national hunt ranks this season, this prolific sire has already sired of over 100 winners in races in 2016, with progeny earnings of over £1.8 million.

Top performers include Royal Ascot Gold Cup winner Trip To Paris, dual Group winner & Irish Oaks runner-up Jack Naylor along with Prix Imprudence winner and French 1,000 Guineas and French Oaks third Xcellence.

A noteworthy figure related to this sire is that in 2016, he had 17 blacktype performers including Gr.3 winners Suffused and Renown.

Creating interest among several leading National Hunt connections already including Harold Kirk/Willie Mullins, David Bridgwater, Seamus Durack, Paul Webber etc.
