Paris Grand Prix: Step into the glory of the scumbags

He’s the best sprinter galloper trained in France at the moment, and certainly not the worst! Raised by Adam Bowden, a great sprinter in the United States, Onesto brought together two disciplines, with Jean-Etienne Dubois, Mathieu Millet and Fabien Rycroft on one side for sulk, and Gérard Augustin Normand, Stéphane Billon, Hubert Guy and Fabrice Chappet for the gallop… All these beauties tasted the same last night when their son Frankel won the Grand Prix de Paris as captain.

Onesto, he is a beautiful chestnut who brings together all the disciplines and common passions. Between the trotters and the gallopers, there are associations created every day, but from there to the acquisition of Gr.1 … is another story. Winning the Prix Greffulhe (Gr.2), then placing 5th in the Jockey Club (Gr.1) with a terrible career, Onesto took longer than others to rise to the top of the list. 3 year old ponies. However, he is always treated like a very good horse by Fabrice Chappet. He proved himself right once again by winning the Grand Prix de Paris without a whip, helped by his mastery of Stephane Pasquier. Onesto is ahead of the amazing Simca Millefrom handicap to Gr.1 in a very short time, and El Bodegon2nd place in the Jockey Club.

Committed to the Arc de Triomphe is no longer a distant dream for the great team surrounding it. Between the Cycling Club and the Grand Prix de Paris, Gerard Augustin Normand entered the adventure by buying 25% of the horse from Jean-Pierre Dubois, whose coat he wears until now. On the smooth side, we always have Jean-Etienne Dubois, Mathieu Millet from the stable Hunter valley, and Fabien Rycroft from the Elag stables. When galloping, these are Stephane Billon, Hubert Guy, Haras d’Etrehamand their coach Fabrice Chappet, who is in business… In short, the evening needs to have a big table to celebrate such a victory.

A very active US broker, Hubert Guy unearthed this Onesto in Uncle Sam’s country, at Breeze-Up in Ocala, where it was purchased for over $500,000. It must be said that despite his equestrian roots, he was able to create a breeze worthy of being a young sprinter… He assembled a team of co-owners, and the horse sent to Fabrice Chappet, with whom Hubert Guy worked. so many. Trained since the late ’90s in Chantilly, this legendary phlegm pro has taken years to reach the highest level. Victory of Precious in the Poule d’Essai des Pouliches (Gr.1) in 2017 put him in another sphere, and attracted many owners to stables with more than 100 horses. In 2018, Smart offered him a second Gr.1 in the Prix Jean Prat. Since then, there have been a few good horses, but none of this caliber. At the same time, once you have decided to practice “classic”, you must know how to be patient. And Fabrice Chappet didn’t miss his shot with Onesto, who is in good shape, before proving that he is a man of high class.

In fact, Onesto is a trotting fugitive. His breeder Adam Bowden is one of the most iconic sprinters in the United States, and was created in the early 2000s Diamond Creek Ranch in Kentucky. With a branch in Pennsylvania, he has about ten stallions, and last winter even signed a partnership with France Trotting to bring back to the US frozen semen of famous stallions from our country like Face Time Bourbon and Bold Eagle. Not long ago, he began galloping diversification, with a few large stallions stationed between Ireland and the United States. Ashore, Onesto’s mother, remains in Europe. Besides his longing by Gleneagles will be one of the stars of ARQANA’s August sale. Signed by Camas Park & ​​Glenvale Stud, she is now the sister of a Gr.1 winner…one more in the category!

Young successful jumping horse’s sister Jet Awayand the granddaughter of the wonderful wife hasiliOnshore was presented in full Frankel at the Tattersalls hatchery sale in 2016, and acquired 320,000 Gns. She was one of the first Frankel hybrid mares sold by Juddmonte Farms. This crossing didn’t work at first glance, before being retried for Onesto, with the results we know of. Yesterday, he became the 25th Gr.1 winner for Frankel, who is the fastest male in history to achieve this result, thanks to a special generation of 3yos who helped. Onesto is also the first Gr.1 winner as the daughter of Sea The Stars. This is a pretty obvious symbol because Sea The Stars and Frankel are now the leaders of Europe, along with Dubawi.

Frankel, undisputed and undisputed!

Born to shine in the world of gallopers, and revealed by trotters, Onesto is therefore a slightly different pony, and is today one of the concrete hopes. most of the French camp for the Arc de Triomphe. We should see him again in the Niel region, and then on the beautiful first weekend of October, may the rain not be too much…
