Perennial bridesmaid Duke of Marmalade finally broke through for his first stakes victory, capturing the Prix Ganay (Fr-I) at Longchamp April 27 by a determined half-length over Saddex. The race marked the first group I race of the European flat season.
Favorite Laverock could do no better than fourth as Saddex powered to a 1 1/4-length victory in the Rheinland-Pokal der Sparkasse KolnBonn (Ger-I) at Cologne on August 12.
Prince Flori burst through the field with a furlong left to run to spring a 40-1 surprise in the Grosser Volkswagen Preis von Baden (Ger-I) on Sunday.
