Sigy: Suesa even stronger


Tuesday, April 20, 2021, Chantilly racecourse (Oise). - Unbeaten in two races at 2, when trained by Carlos Laffon-Parias for Georgiana Cabrero, Suesa (Night of Thunder) hadn't run since her win in the Prix Yacowlef (L), by two lengths ...

Since then she was sold to George Strawbridge, and moved from Chantilly to Pau to join François Rohaut's yard -who'd also produced the last winner of this Prix Sigy (Gr3) in 2019, Big Brothers’ Pride, also very promising on that day, the trainer had also saddled the 2014 winner of the race, Signs of Blessing.

Third favourite behind the British raider Ubettabelieveit (Kodiac), who's completely failed since he finished 6 lengths behind the field (the stewards asked for an explanation of the rider), and the Wertheimer homebred Kalahara (Frankel), she won again very impressively, by over three lengths, beating the two Godolphin runners.

Suesa was purchased for € 17,000 € at Goffs in Ireland. Her dam Sally is the Boss (Orpen) didn't run but her first foal, Valle Inclan (Elusive Pimprenel), won his first three races at San Sebastian and in a claimer at Saint-Cloud with Ana Imaz-Ceca. He was unable to win again ten times after that and is not trained anymore.
