Domedriver, who was produced from the Baillamont mare Napoli, was beaten a neck in the Aug. 17 Prix du Haras de Fresnay-Le-Buffard-Jacques Le Marois (Fr-I). Domedriver won a pair of French group races last year and has a career record of six wins from 20 starts and earnings close to $1 million.
Domedriver, winner of last year's NetJets Breeders' Cup Mile (gr. IT), will enter stud at Kirsten Rausing's Lanwades Stud near Newmarket, England, in 2004. A homebred for the Niarchos family, the 5-year-old French-based son of Indian Ridge might return to the U.S. for a try in this year's Mile prior to his retirement this year.
