Grudge, a two year old filly by Free Eagle became his 7th individual winner when winning at Pornichet for Prime Equestrian and trainer Christoph Ferland.
Bred by Petra Bloodstock she is a three-part to Gr.1 winner Contributor out of Gr.3 scorer Serisia (Exit To Nowhere) and was a €200,000 sales graduate from Arqana August when consigned by Haras de la Louviere.
Khalifa Sat, a two year old colt by Free Eagle added to his first season sire’s tally when stepping up to 1m 2f. He is a half-brother to six winners, including the Champion Three-Year-Old Stayer in Ireland, Gr.3 victrix and Gr.1-placed Unsung Heroine (High Chaparral) and the Listed-placed eight time winner Ghostmilk (Golan). Bred by Declan Phelan of Tullogher House Stud, he was a Goffs Orby graduate when selling for €40,000 to trainer Andrew Balding for owner Ahmad Al Shaikh.
Khalifa Sat holds an entry in the Derby 2020, Trainer Andrew Balding must think highly of this colt and we look forward to seeing him in the future. His dam Thermopylae has a yearling full-sister to the winner.
