FRANKEL COLT SUPERSTAR IN THE MAKING

Hurricane Lane may only be a three year old but the son of Frankel is putting the world on notice after winning the Group 2 Grand Prix De Paris in France overnight destroying a strong field by over 6 lengths

Hurricane Lane winning the Grand Prix De Paris

Charlie Appleby trained Hurricane Lane’s win was so impressive it shifted the colt into favouritism for the Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe at $6.50 after dominating in the Group 1 for three year olds.

The win was a huge one for the son of Frankel as it came just three weeks after he narrowly won the Irish Derby over 2400m and took his record on the track to 5 wins and a placing from 6 starts. 


His only blot on the copy book so far has been a third place finish in the Epsom Derby where he finished 7 ¾ lengths off the outstanding stayer Adayar.

"This horse is a superstar. He really had the perfect race today, unlike at the Curragh," Buick said after the big win.

Jockey William Buick, who has previously contested the Melbourne Cup, was in the saddle for the Grand Prix De Paris and more than bullish about his ride on the Godolphin horse. 

"The layout of the racecourse, the ground, the rhythm - everything was perfect for him. He has a good cruising speed and a strong acceleration. Even more so, he is a very relaxed horse in his head.

"Off the back of that, I think that the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe has to be a serious option for the autumn time."

Champion Irish trainer Aiden O’Brien had four runners in the race with his best finisher Wordsworth finishing in second place. 

The field was tightly packed around the final turn but nothing was a match for the frightening turn of foot Hurricane Lane was able to produce.
