Treve's sister Trophee
set for Chantilly debut
THOSE already impatient for their next sighting of runaway Arc winner Treve will get the next best thing on Friday afternoon at Chantilly, where little sister Trophee makes her first racecourse appearance in the fillies' maiden.
Like her unbeaten sibling, Trophee was bred at the Head family's Haras du Quesnay and will be sent out for her first day at school by Criquette Head-Maarek, with Thierry Jarnet, who rode Treve in the Arc, once again entrusted with the ride.
The daughter of Le Quesnay's US-bred sire Mr Sidney will face 12 rivals in the Prix de Sandricourt (12.50) over a mile.
"Trophee works well, the only thing is I don't have much of a line on my two-year-olds at the moment as I've only run a few," said Head-Maarek. "But she's impressed me and should run well."
Head-Maarek will put Treve away for the winter with a view to a campaign based around next season's Arc, but was happy to report that, in the few days since Sunday's demolition of Orfevre and company, her stable star has thrived. "Since the race, she looks stronger," she revealed.
