BRAMETOT and LE BRIVIDO battle it out in thrilling Poulains finish
15 May 2017

From the first crop of Haras de la Cauvinière resident stallion Rajsaman and bought as a foal for €26,000 by Sylvain Vidal from Haras du Logis, BRAMETOT crowned his virtually unblemished record with a hard-fought victory in the Gr.1 Poule d'Essai des Poulains, France's 2,000 Guineas.

Having won four of his five starts coming into the race, including the Gr.3 Prix de Fontainebleau in most impressive style last time out, the colt was carrying the colours of Al Shaqab Racing for the first time, after Sheikh Joaan Al Thani stepped into his ownership to race him in partnership with Gérard Augustin-Normand. The apple of Jean-Claude Rouget's eye was given a patient ride by regular rider Cristian Demuro and emerged full of zest at the 400 metre mark, only to face a determined challenge from a rival that had travelled on the opposite side of the field.

LE BRIVIDO, a son of Siyouni, was first sold at the October Yearling Sale, where he was picked up by George Mullins for €42,000 having been offered by Marie-Laure Collet's Haras de Clairefontaine. He returned to the Deauville sales ring 7 months later for the Breeze Up Sale, under Mick Murphy and Sarah O'Connor Longways Stables's banner, and commanded a final bid of €105,000 from Ted Voute acting on behalf of Prince Faisal Bin Khaled.
