Caradak Wins French Gr1 Foret

Tuesday, 3rd October 2006

Former Yarraman Park shuttler Desert Style (Green Desert-Organza, by High Top) added a 2nd French Gr1 triumph for the weekend when Godolphin's 5YO entire Caradak (Desert Style-Caraiyma, by Shahrastani) grabbed victory by a short-neck in a thrilling 3-way photo-finish to the €250,000 (A$400,00) Gr1 Prix de la Foret (1400m) at Longchamp. Caradak (ridden by Frankie Dettori for trainer Saeed Bin Suroor) defeated dead-heaters Welsh Emperor (Emperor Jones-Simply Times, by Dodge) & Linngari (Indian Ridge-Lidakiya, by Kahyasi). Caradak (bred in Ireland by the Aga Khan) had finished runner-up in this race last year; this season he has also won the UK Gr2 Celebration Mile (8 furlongs) at Goodwood in August after finishing 3rd a week earlier in the UK Gr2 Hungerford Stakes at Newbury. Overall he now boasts 9 wins & 3 placings from 15 starts (also including victories in Ireland's 2005 Gr3 Minstrel Stakes at the Curragh & Gr3 Desmond Stakes at Leopardstown).
