Call To Mind settles for second as Ice Breeze proves too hot at Chantilly

Sat 30 Sep 2017

Ice Breeze outpointed British challenger Call To Mind to claim top honours in the Qatar Prix Chaudenay at Chantilly.

Frankie Dettori sported the royal colours of the Queen aboard the William Haggas-trained Call To Mind, who was a leading contender for this one-mile-seven-furlong Group Two having impressed in a Goodwood Listed event at the end of August.

The three-year-old raced on the speed throughout and managed to see off Darbuzan in the final furlong, but Pascal Bary's Ice Breeze came through a gap on the rail to get up and score narrowly in the hands of Vincent Cheminaud.

Bary said: "We beat the Queen! He was given a masterful ride, but I think our horse was a little bit better than Dettori's horse.

"I think this horse can be a very good stayer next year. I was quite confident he would run a good race today.

"I think for this year he will be finished now and we will wait for the spring. He will be a nice horse for the Prix Vicomtesse Vigier and maybe the Gold Cup (at Royal Ascot)."
