Indonesienne Storms to Marcel Boussac Win

Indonesienne reeled in pacesetter Lesstalk In Park with a torrid rally down the center of the track and won the Total Prix Marcel Boussac-Criterium des Pouliches (Fr-I) for 2-year-old fillies in an upset Oct. 6 at Longchamp. 
 
A maiden winner making her third career start, the Muhtathir filly settled fourth from last in the 13-horse field while Lesstalk in Paris sprinted to the early lead and set a solid pace. With a clear advantage in the stretch, Lesstalk in Paris appeared en route to an easy win, but Indonesienne was angled to the outside entering the straight and wore her down in a steady drive, scoring by three-quarters of a length.
 
Ridden by Flavien Prat she covered 1,600 meters (about one mile) in 1:38.74 at 37-1 odds.
 
Queen Catrine finished third, 1 3/4 lengths behind Lesstalk In Paris.
 
Trained by Christophe Ferland for breeders Alain and Gerard Wertheimer, Indonesienne entered off a runner-up finish in an allowance race Aug. 31 at Chantilly after breaking her maiden in her career debut July 31.
 
Irish-bred Indonesienne is out of the winning Darshaan mare Mydarshaan from the family of French classic winner and United States grade I winner Matiara.
