Dubai Destination Adds French Gr2
In France overnight, dual Gr1-winning former shuttler Dubai Destination (Kingmambo-Mysterial, by Alleged) added a juvenile group success when favoured colt Family One (Dubai Destination-Ascot Family, by Desert Style) notched his 2nd successive stakes win with a 3-lengths victory in the €130,000 (A$176,000) Gr2 Prix Robert Papin (1100m) for 2YOs at Maisons-Laffitte. Family One (ridden by Ioritz Mendizabal for trainer Yann Barberot) defeated the filly Louve Rouge (Gold Away-Loup The Loup, by Loup Solitaire) & Irish-bred fellow colt Mac Row (Le Vie Dei Colori-Kointreau, by Desert King). Family One now has 4 wins (also including last start’s Gr3 Prix Du Bois over 1000m at Chantilly on July 3) & a runner-up from 5 starts for €148,000 (A$200,000) earnings.
