Last Saturday's Vodafone Nassau Stakes (Eng-I) winner Crimplene will race again on Sunday when she faces top males, including 1999 French Two Thousand Guineas (Fr-I) winner Sendawar, in the one-mile Prix du Haras de Fresnay-Le-Buffard-Jacques le Marois (Fr-I) at Deauville, according to Sporting Life. Crimplene (by Lion Cavern), a Clive Brittain trainee, comes into the race with a four-race winning streak, the last three of which came in group I races. Following her win in the Nassau Stakes, Brittain indicated Crimplene's fall campaign would include a trip to the Breeders' Cup at Churchill Downs in November.
The Aga Khan's Sendawar finished fourth in his most recent start, the Prince of Wales Stakes (Eng-I), won by Dubai Millennium. Prior to the Prince of Wales, the 4-year-old son of Priolo won the Prix D' Ispahan (Fr-I) in his only other start of the year.
