Three weeks after securing his first Group victory in the G3 Prix de Reux, Golden Horn’s son Botanik continued his love affair with Normandy by winning by the G2 Grand Prix de Deauville for Godolphin and Andre Fabre.

Now four, the highly progressive Botanik is enjoying a fruitful season with four wins and a second-place finish from his five starts, taking his overall tally to seven wins from just 12 starts.

His regular jockey Michael Barzalona hinted that the Godolphin homebred, who beat Japanese raider and Arc entrant Stay Foolish at Deauville on Sunday, could now be set for an international campaign himself.

Meanwhile, Juddmonte’s racing manager Barry Mahon issued an upbeat bulletin about last week’s Galtres Stakes winner Haskoy, trained by Ralph Beckett. The three-year-old Golden Horn filly now looks set to step into Group 2 company for the Park Hill Stakes at Doncaster.

Mahon told the Racing Post: “She’s only been in training since June…we deliberated hard about going to York but decided to roll the dice and she’s obviously very talented. The Park Hill could be a good fit – Ralph mentioned it over the weekend and that’s her likely target.”
