Caprice des Dieux, again !

From last to first place. In a race led by the high-profile Motazzen (Dubawi), Nicolas Clément's resident found himself in penultimate position, before Inside Glory (Sidestep) came close to the leading line. At the start of the straight, looking for the passage and its action, Caprice des Dieux somewhat let Amboseli (Kingman) go. But it was without counting on the final assault of Caprice des Dieux which, only accompanied by the arms of Stéphane Pasquier, very surely won.

The Prix Eugène Adam in perspective. Delighted with the victory of his resident, Nicolas Clément told Jour de Galop: “Three out of three! All this for lovely owners like Monsieur de Ganay and Monsieur Baillet, but also for a very friendly team of breeders. We have chosen to run him in the country side because the spring maidens in Paris are generally very busy. It made him toughen up as well. We have the right to dream by entering him in the Prix Eugène Adam (Gr2), in July. We had him gelded because he was a naughty one at 2 years old. ".

A nephew of Testosterone. Bred by SAS IEI, Scea des Prairies, Chauvigny Global Equine and the Castillon, Caprice des Dieux was presented by the Bourgeauville stud farm at the August Arqana yearling sale, where he was bought for € 75,000 by Tina Rau and Nicolas Clément. His father, Declaration of War (War Front) now officiates in Japan. The dam, Neko (Dansili), won a race at 3 years old, over the 1900m of Chantilly. Caprice des Dieux is the first offspring of the latter which also gave Gemmyo (Shalaa), a 2yr in training with Carlos and Yann Lerner and a yearling by Wootton Bassett (Iffraaj).
