Suedois bags Boomerang!
9th September 2017 Winners
Suedois swooped late on to win the Clipper Logistic Boomerang Stakes Group 2 at Leopardstown on Champions weekend. It was a well deserved victory for a horse who has been ever so consistent since joining Team O’Meara. Suedois has been placed in 11 Group races, 4 of which were at the highest level. The wait for victory for his owners, George Turner and Clipper Logistics, was extra special with the latter sponsoring the race.
Running in his first race over a mile since a 2 year old, Suedois was held up in 5th by Danny Tudhope who began to make a move 2 furlongs out. Inside the final furlong Suedois excelled over the step up in trip and stayed on strongly to come between horses in the final furlong winning by half a length.
The step up in trip has opened up plenty more options for our Le Havre gelding, bought by Bradley Kelly Bloodstock in 2015 at the Arc sale, one of which being the Shadwell Turf Mile at Keeneland in October.
