Pedigree Watch – France, Ireland – New G1 for Frankel

Tara Madgwick - Thursday July 14

Frankel continued his relentless domination of European Group races overnight at Longchamp adding a 25th Group I winner to his ever growing tally.

Trained by Fabrice Chappet, progressive colt Onesto improved off his last start fifth to Vadeni in the Group I French Derby to win the Group I Grand Prix de Paris (2400m) by a neck with a brilliant turn of foot.

 

Already a Group II winner, Onesto has the overall record of three wins from six starts and holds an entry for the Arc.

Sold as a yearling for 185,000 guineas at Tattersalls October Book 1, he was re-offered at the Ocala Breeders Spring Sale of 2YO’s in the US last year where he was bought by Hubert Guy Bloodstock for US$535,000.

Onesto is the first winner for unraced Sea the Stars mare Onshore, a three-quarter sister to Group III winner Jet Away from the famed Juddmonte family of Kerali. His grand-dam Kalima is a full sister to blue hen Hasili, the dam of five Group I winners.

This family has already had success with Frankel to produce Group I winners Mirage Dancer and Quadrilateral.

Onesto also has an interesting 3 x 3 double cross of blue hen Urban Sea and is the second stakes-winner from 12 runners for Frankel from a daughter of Sea the Stars

The Group II Prix de Malleret (2400m) was won by the Andre Fabre trained Juddmonte homebred 3YO Frankel filly Raclette.

 

 

A Listed winner previously, she has won four of six starts and is the best of three winners for four time Group I winner Emollient

The Group III Meld Stakes (1m1f) at Leopardstown produced an interesting winner in Boundless Ocean, a Teofilo colt bred and trained by Jim Bolger.

 

A last start sixth in the Irish Derby, he claimed his first stakes win with a three and a quarter length victory.

He is the best of three full winning siblings from Novel Approach, an unplaced New Approach mare from the family of Group I winner Angara and a host of other Group and stakes-winners.

He is the 108th stakes-winner for Teofilo and is his first bred from a daughter of New Approach, both stallions sired by Galileo.

The double cross of Galileo has produced four stakes-winner to date, the best of them another Jim Bolger bred and trained Group I winner in Mac Swiney, who is bred the reverse way being by New Approach from a daughter of Teofilo..
