Observations on the European Racing Scene turns the spotlight on the best European races of the day, highlighting well-pedigreed horses early in their careers, horses of note returning to action and young runners that achieved notable results in the sales ring. Thursday’s Observations features a half-sister to G1 2000 Guineas winner Chaldean (GB) (Frankel {GB}).

15.00 Salisbury, Novice, £10,000, 2yo, 5fT
KESSAYA (GB) (Kingman {GB}) debuts for Juddmonte and Andrew Balding, who enjoyed that big day last May with her half-brother Chaldean (GB) (Frankel {GB}). Also a half to the G2 Mill Reef S.-winning sire Alkumait (GB) (Showcasing {GB}), the 1million gns Tattersalls December Foal Sale topper encounters TBT Racing’s fellow newcomer Blinky (Ire) (Mehmas {Ire}), a 120,000gns half-brother to the G3 Prix de Saint-Georges winner and G1 Prix de l’Abbaye runner-up White Lavender (Ire) (Heeraat {Ire}).

 

16.45 York, Novice, £30,000, 2yo, 6fT
SEATTLE (FR) (Siyouni {Fr}) is a rare early juvenile runner in Britain for Ballydoyle, but he is some prospect as the top-priced colt at last year’s Arqana Deauville August Yearling Sale. Out of a half-sister to Shamardal, the €2.2-million sensation encounters another pedigree notable in Clipper Logistics’ Andesite (GB) (Pinatubo {Ire}), a Karl Burke-trained half-brother to the G2 Queen Mary S. and G2 Temple S. winner Dramatised (Ire) (Showcasing {GB}).
