Qatar Arabian Trophy des Pouliches - Easter de Faust has the makings of a champion
SAINT-CLOUD (FRA), 29th September 2017
Gr. I PA - 3 year old fillies - 2,000m - € 100,000
Highly esteemed by her trainer, Élisabeth Bernard, Easter de Faust (Mahabb) hit the board on her debut in August, before just missing out on the line, not long ago in the Prix Nevada II (Gr. III PA). At Saint-Cloud, she did not let the opportunity to win the Qatar Arabian Trophy des Pouliches (Gr. I PA) pass her by. Joudh (Mahabb), the hot favourite, finished well but came too late. The race lacked pace, and there were some hard luck stories amongst the runners.
A smart turn of foot
You didn’t want to be too far off the pace in this edition of the Qatar Arabian Trophy des Pouliches. The race began half way down the straight. Easter de Faust pulled clear down the center of the track to win by over two lenghs.
After the race, Élisabeth Bernard, clearly emotional, opened up about this Sheail Bin Khalifa Al Kuwari owned filly: “She is a very good filly, who has confirmed everything that we thought of her. A lot of athletes suffer from setbacks, and she has had a few problems. This win will obviously bring a lot of pleasure to her connections. She has finally come into herself”.
Gérard and Jean-Paul Larrieu’s fantastic day
Gérard Larrieu bred Easter de Faust along with his brother Jean-Paul. He commented after the race: “She has shown that she is a first class filly. She disappointed us a little last time out, when she was keen in front. She is a classy filly. The dam was bred at our stud, and we bought the grand dam around thirty years ago. She was the first Arabian mare that I bought for a significant sum”.Gérard Larrieu also bought Prontamente (More than Ready), the smart winner of the Prix Victrix. And, on the same day at Saint-Cloud, Rodess du Loup (Dahess) finished second in the Qatar Arabian Trophy des Poulains (Gr. I PA). After having been bought as a foal from Jean-Marc Saphores, Rodess du Loup was raised at Haras de Saint-Faust, under the supervision of Jean-Paul Larrieu, as was Easter de Faust.
The niece of Have Fun
Easter de Faust comes from the same maternal family as Rajeh, who a few minutes previously had won the Qatar Arabian Trophy des Poulains, that of Nevada II (Djanor). Easter de Faust is the most successful offspring of Ayisha de Faust (Al Sakbe), a daughter of Gabie de Carrère (Manganate), who was third in the Prix du Sultanat d’Oman. Gabie de Carrère produced Have Fun (WF High Voltage), winner of the Derby Trial Stakes (Gr. II PA), and Rainbow de Faust (Darike), third in the Emirates Arabian International Stakes (Gr. II PA). The third dam, Nerva du Cassou (Baroud III), produced Elios de Carrère (Manganate) and Nizam (Amer), winner of fifteen races, including the President Cup and the Emir’s Sword (Gr Is PA). Danie du Cassou (Dahr), a daughter of Nerva du Cassou, who produced another champion, Dahess (Amer), a 28 time winner, including three reprisals of the Zaabeel International Stakes (Gr. I PA) at Newbury.
