Cappella Sansevero joins Qatar Racing
QATAR RACING strengthened their Royal Ascot team on the eve of the meeting, when purchasing unbeaten juvenile Cappella Sansevero at the Goffs London sale.
Trained by Ger Lyons, the colt is a best-priced 9-1 for the Coventry Stakes, and a bid of £1.3 million from Sheikh Fahad Al Thani proved enough to secure the two-year-old.
Cappella Sansevero will stay with Lyons and will now be ridden by Jamie Spencer in the Coventry.
Lyons tweeted: "Cappella Sansevero will run in the silks of Qatar Racing and will be ridden by their number one jockey Jamie Spencer. I can't wish them enough luck."
Cappella Sansevero has won all three starts to date, including a Listed race at the Curragh last time out.
