Kinnaird Wins French Gr1 Opera

Tuesday, 4th October 2005

Renata Jacobs's 4YO mare Kinnaird (Dr Devious-Ribot's Guest, by Be My Guest) snatched victory by a neck in France's €250,000 (A$400,000) Gr1 Prix de l'Opera (2000m) for fillies & mares at Longchamp. Kinnaird (ridden by Kevin Darley for trainer Patrick Haslam) defeated Mona Lisa (Giant's Causeway-Colorsnap, by Shirley Heights) & fast-finishing Alexander Goldrun (Gold Away-Renashaan, by Darshaan). Kinnaird was "a €10,000 (A$16,000) Goffs yearling who sold for only 8,000 guineas (A$20,800) at the Doncaster Bloodstock 2003 April Breeze-Up sale," noted thoroughbredinternet.com.
