Godolphin’s Tribalist Dominates Saint-Cloud Feature

Godolphin’s Tribalist (GB) (Farhh {GB}–Fair Daughter {GB}, by Nathaniel {Ire}), who hit the board in last term’s G1 Poule d’Essai des Poulains, took care of business in Saint-Cloud’s G3 Prix Edmond Blanc on seasonal return last month and revisited the Parisian venue to dominate Monday’s G2 Prix du Muguet.

The 27-10 second choice broke smartly from the inside stall to gain early control and held a two-length advantage into the home straight. Untroubled throughout, he was shaken up with 300 metres remaining and ridden out inside the final furlong to easily hold the late threat of familiar rival Facteur Cheval (Ire) (Ribchester {Ire}) by 1 1/4 lenths for a second pattern-race score. It was the same margin back to 27-10 favourite Erevann (Fr) (Dubawi {Ire}) in third.

“Tribalist is a very consistent horse and goes on any ground,” insisted trainer Andre Fabre. “He always gives his best and, all being well, he will go for the [May 20 G1] Lockinge S. at Newbury.”

Pedigree Notes
Tribalist is the first of four foals and lone performer produced by an unraced half-sister to five black-type performers headed by G1 Racing Post Trophy-winning sire Crowded House (GB) (Rainbow Quest). Descendants of his second dam Wiener Wald (Woodman) also include multiple Group 1-winning sire Reckless Abandon (GB) (Exchange Rate), multiple Grade I-winning distaffer Ticker Tape (GB) (Royal Applause {GB}) and G1 Prix Maurice de Gheest hero Brando (GB) (Pivotal {GB}). The February-foaled chestnut, who hails from the family of GISW sire Storm Cat (Storm Bird), is a full-brother to the unraced 2-year-old filly Fair Point (GB) and half to a yearling filly by Make Believe (GB).
