Conduit Channels Victory in St. Leger

Conduit Channels Victory in St. Leger

Sir Michael Stoute had won every other British classic at least twice, but a victory in the Ladbrokes St. Leger (Eng-I) had always eluded him. After 34 years of training, that omission from his resume was corrected when Frankie Dettori guided 8-1 shot Conduit to a comfortable three length win at Doncaster Sept. 13.

Zarkava Sizzles at Longchamp

Zarkava remained undefeated with an emphatic two length victory over Goldikova in the Poule d'Essai des Pouliches (Fr-I) at Longchamp May 11. With the win, the 3-year-old filly set a new stakes record for the classic, completing the eight furlongs in 1:35.2, which surpassed the previous mark of 1:35.7 set by Zalaiyka in 1998 and equaled by Torrestrella in 2004.
