Galiway’s Showay Books Pouliches Ticket With Imprudence Upset

With 10 prior efforts recorded on the palmares, Le Haras de la Gousserie’s sophomore distaffer Showay (Fr) (Galiway {GB}–Show Gorb {Spa}, by Caradak {Ire}) was, by some margin, the most experienced contender for Thursday’s G3 Prix Imprudence at Deauville and her ringcraft told in the dying embers of a thrilling renewal. She stepped up from claiming company to twice hit the board at stakes level last term and was let go at a whopping 42-1 for this seven-furlong feature coming back off a third in Cagnes-sur-Mer’s Feb. 12 Listed Prix de la Californie. The eventual winner was swiftly into stride and tracked the tempo in a handy third through the halfway mark. Last off the bridle inside the two pole, she inched ahead with 150 metres remaining and was driven out to hold the late bid of Ritournelle (Fr) (Camelot {GB}) by a head for a career high.

“We loved this filly from day one, when she ran in a claimer at Saint-Cloud, and we bought her privately at the end of last season,” explained Pauline Cheboub. “She ran well in Cagnes this winter, but had not come around yet. The two races there helped her be spot on for this race, which was our first major target, and it’s mission accomplished.” Looking to Classic targets ahead, Chehboub added, “She is entered in the [May 14 G1] Poule d’Essai des Pouliches [at ParisLongchamp] and, most definitely, she is an intended runner.”
