Suedois swoops Shadwell Prize!
7th October 2017
For the third year on the bounce trips to North America have been successful for us………..This time it was Suedois’ turn to shine!
Suedois headed out to Keeneland on the back of a Group 2 success in Leopardstown the previous month when he was stepped up to a mile. The Shadwell Turf Mile, worth $1,000,000, was always the plan after his Group 2 success in Leopardstown where he proved that the trip wasn’t a problem for him and he didn’t let us down!
Danny Tudhope travelled over to ride him and with a draw of 3 he held Suedois up in mid-division until he began to make a move 2 furlongs out, surging home to win by half a length.
Owned by Mr George Turner and Clipper Logistics, ridden out by Colin Bolger and looked after by Madan Singh, Suedois really deserved this Grade 1 win and we are delighted for all connections.
He now has a free entry to the Breeders Cup.
