Beat Hollow rebounded from a third-place finish in the Vodafone (Epsom) Derby (Eng-I) earlier this month to win Sunday's Grand Prix de Paris (Fr-I) at Longchamp. Beat Hollow finished a length ahead of Premier Pas after completing the 1 1/4 miles in 2:03.7 over good turf.
Beat Hollow (Sadler's Wells--Wemyss Bight, by Dancing Brave) was bred in England by Juddmonte Farms. The Grand Prix de Paris win, his third in four career starts, marks his first in a group stakes. He won the Green Ridge Stables Newmarket Stakes in May while prepping for the Vodafone Derby. As a juvenile, he raced once, winning a one-mile maiden race in September by three lengths.
