Unbeaten Beauvatier impresses at ParisLongchamp

Exciting juvenile Beauvatier maintained his unbeaten record with a decisive success in the Prix la Rochette at ParisLongchamp.

Yann Barberot’s colt bolted up on his racecourse debut at Chantilly in the spring and had since completed his hat-trick with further victories at Saint-Cloud and Deauville.

Stepping up to Group Three level for the first time, the son of Lope De Vega was the 1-4 favourite to bring up the four-timer and ultimately did so in fine style.

After being settled in midfield for much of the seven-furlong journey by Maxime Guyon, Beauvatier quickened to the lead entering the final furlong and was not fully extended to beat Evade comfortably.

The obvious next port of call for the winner is the Group One Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere, run over the same course and distance on the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe undercard on October 1.

“I’m so delighted, how lucky we are to have such a young prospect that is winning all the time. I hope it is just the beginning of a long story,” winning owner Gitte Allaire told Sky Sports Racing.

“He (Guyon) was very satisfied, he said he could have done whatever he wanted him to do and I want to congratulate Yann Barberot and and the whole team.

“The horse is really cool and he did the job, but he can do so much more.

“It’s always a dream when you have a good horse and we are so happy and lucky.”
