Reckless glides to Morny glory
Sunday 19 August 2012
Reckless Abandon swept to Group One glory in the Darley Prix Morny at Deauville to take his unbeaten record to four.
Clive Cox's speedy youngster was quickly away, enabling Gerald Mosse to grab the stands rail and make the running.
The Norfolk Stakes and Prix Robert Papin winner was given an easy lead in front and had plenty left in the tank in the closing stages as he stepped up to six furlongs for the first time.
The Aidan O'Brien-trained pair of George Vancouver and Parliament Square finished strongly, but had to settle for second and third place respectively. Sir Prancealot, trained by Richard Hannon, was fourth.
