Desert Style Adds French Gr3

Monday, 4th July 2011

Former Yarraman Park shuttler Desert Style (Green Desert-Organza, by High Top) added a French group success when The Aga Khan’s front-running Irish-bred colt Ziyarid (Desert Style-Zayanida, by King's Best) scored by a neck in the €80,000 (A$110,000) Gr3 Prix Daphnis (1850m) for 3YO colts & geldings at Longchamp. Ziyarid (ridden by Michael Poirier for trainer Alain De Royer-Dupre) defeated fellow Irish-bred colt Valiyr (Alhaarth-Valima, by Linamix) & another colt Absolutly Yes (Country Reel-Semenova, by Green Tune). Ziyarid now has 4 wins (also including May’s Listed Prix Georges Trabaud over 2000m at Marseille-Borely) & a runner-up from 6 starts for €95,400 (A$131,000) earnings.
