ABDULLAH BINKHALIFA AL THANI’S CHARM SPIRIT WINS
THE PRIX JEAN PRAT (Gr 1) AT CHANTILLY
In winning the Prix
Jean Prat (Gr1), on Monday at Chantilly,
Charm Spirit lived up his connection’s
belief that he is a Group 1 horse. Sheikh
Abdullah Bin Khalifa Al Thani’s three-year-old
carried his colours to Group 1 victory for the
first time in a thoroughbred race on his third
attempt at this level. As a two-year-old he
finished third in the Qatar Prix Jean-Luc
Lagardère (Gr1). After his success in the Prix
Djebel (Gr3) this year, Freddy Head chose to run
him in the 2,000 Guineas (Gr1) at Newmarket
where he finished fifth, three parts of a length
behind Shifting Power who he came up
against again on Monday. After an easy success
in the Prix Paul de Moussac (Gr3), he lined up
in the last race of the year over a mile
reserved for three-year-olds. This time Olivier
Peslier choose to sit in behind La Hoguette,
while Yuften and Shifting Power set the pace. At
the 200 metre mark La Hoguette, who Grégory
Benoist had yet to ask for an effort, made her
move up the rail but Yuften hung right and
stopped Gérard Augustin-Normand’s filly in her
stride. Charm Spirit avoided trouble on the
outside and accelerated easily to beat Yuften.
Freddy Head explained: “I was a little
worried early on as it was not the plan to hold
him up but Olivier Peslier thought they were
going too fast in front and he made the right
choice. He had an excellent run and his turn of
foot kept him out of trouble. I have always
thought he was a Group 1 horse. He did not
disappoint us against a tough field in the
Guineas but he did not travel well to Newmarket.
The plan is to run him in the Prix Jacques le
Marois in Deauville.”
