Territories was triumphant in the Gr.1 Prix Jean Prat at Chantilly on Sunday. Not only was Territories bringing up a hat-trick of winners in the race for his sire Invincible Spirit, following the victories of Lawman and last year’s victor Charm Spirit he is also the Irish National Stud sire’s eleventh individual Group 1 winner.
Territories was waited with out the back as the leaders set a frenetic pace up front – the first three furlongs were covered in an exceptionally quick 35 seconds. Also held up was Dutch Connection who swept past the field with two furlongs remaining. Mikael Barzalona on Territories tracked the move and he only he never had to use his stick as he pushed out the Invincible Spirit colt to win cosily.
We would like to congratulate the connections on their Group 1 victory.
