Septembr 30, 2022, Saint-Cloud Racecourse (Hauts-de-Seine). – The good-looking Continuous (Heart's Cry) won for his debut at the Curragh and went on in a first Group race in the €80,000 Jockey Club de Turquie Prix Thomas Bryon (Gr3), also a first for his trainer Aidan O'Brien and the Coolmore connection.

First held up, Continuous (Heart's Cry) was shaken up over 2f out, ran on to take over about 100 yards from home and edged clear towards the finish line, winning more cosily that it may have seemed. The race's leader Make Me King (Dark Angel) lost 2nd place on the wire but got it back after the stewards' enquiry as Syros (Wotton Bassett) was disqualified from that position.

Bred by Orpendale, Chelston Ire & Wynatt, Continuous was sired by he Japanese champion Heart's Cry (Sunday Silence). His dam Fluff (Galileo) also foaled National Ballet (Deep Impact) and Navajo Warrior (Deep Impact), who are both listed at Tattersalls. She's a full sister to Maybe, dam of Two Thousand Guineas winner Saxon Warrior (Deep Impact).
