Dansili’s With You Takes the Reservoirs

By Tom Frary


It has been a lean year for the French juveniles, but it could be that the best has been saved until last as ‘TDN Rising Star’ With You (GB) (Dansili {GB}) dominated this end-of-term test with a performance hallmarked with Classic promise. Emphatic on her debut when successful by six lengths over this mile trip at Saint-Cloud on Sept. 21, the full-sister to the same connections’ G1 Prix de l’Opera heroine We Are (Ire) was backed into 7-10 favouritism and was sent to the lead soon after the start by Aurelien Lemaitre. Travelling easily there, the imposing bay shook off Connivence (Fr) (Motivator {GB}) from early in the straight and stayed on powerfully under hand riding to register a 2 1/2-length verdict over Altea (Fr) (Siyouni {Fr}).

With You has the jump on We Are at comparable stages of their careers, with the latter unable to race at two. She proved a quick learner once she did make the track in 2014, taking the G1 Prix Saint-Alary on her third start only to later be stripped of it due to elevated testosterone levels resulting from a tumor, but she later made amends by winning the Opera in which she was also third in 2015.

Pedigree Notes…

She is one of now four black-type performers out of the G3 Prix de Flore winner In Clover (GB) (Inchinor {GB}), also alongside Dream Clover (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}) who captured the Listed Prix de la Cochere and Listed Prix de Saint-Cyr and was third in the G3 Prix de Lieurey and her listed-winning full-sister Incahoots (GB). The G3 Prix de Royaumont-winning second dam Bellarida (Fr) (Bellypha {Ire}) counts among her descendants the G1 Hong Kong Vase-winning champion stayer Dominant (Ire) (Cacique {Ire}), his G2 Lennox S.-winning half-brother Es Que Love (Ire) (Clodovil {Ire}) and his SW and MGSP half-sister Listen In (Ire) (Sea the Stars {Ire}). Others of note include the Australian group winners Adjusted (Ire) (Montjeu {Ire}) and Observational (GB) (Galileo {Ire}) and the G3 Chartwell Fillies’ S. scorer and G1 Matron S. runner-up Lily’s Angel (Ire) (Dark Angel {Ire}) and her half-sister Zurigha (Ire) (Cape Cross {Ire}), who placed in Dubai’s G2 Cape Verdi and G2 Balanchine. In Clover’s 3-year-old colt Call the Wind (GB) (Frankel {GB}) will race for this stable, while she also has a yearling full-sister and foal full-brother to the winner and We Are.
