Showing courage as well as a fair amount of ability at ParisLongchamp on Sunday, Nurlan Bizakov’s Lazzat (Fr) (Territories {Ire}) maintained his unbeaten record in the feature G3 Prix Paul de Moussac. Enjoying a lead throughout the early stages, the Jerome Reynier-trained G3 Prix Djebel and Listed Prix de la Californie winner was in front and there to be shot at from 2 1/2 furlongs out. Tenacious for Antonio Orani as TDN Rising Star Havana Cigar (GB) (Havana Grey {GB}) emerged from the pack late, the 6-5 favourite dug out a short-neck verdict.

“It’s just amazing to keep him unbeaten–we couldn’t quite manage five straight wins for Facteur Cheval, so we wanted to do better than that and we hope he has the same future,” Reynier said. “We’ve got the [G2] Lennox or the [G1] Sussex at Goodwood or we could keep him in France for the [G1] Maurice de Gheest, where he would face some really good sprinters. He’s not eligible for the [G1] Prix Jean Prat, as he’s a gelding, and the more he races, the faster he gets–he won over the straight course in the Djebel at Deauville and that’s why we are thinking Maurice de Gheest. He could have gone for the Jersey at Royal Ascot, but he has the French premiums here so it made sense.”

Pedigree Notes
Lazzat is the first and so far only foal of a granddaughter of the G1 1000 Guineas heroine Sleepytime (Ire) (Royal Academy), who produced six stakes performers headed by the G3 Superior Mile winner Hathal (Speightstown). Along with her fellow group 1-winning full-brother Ali-Royal (Ire), Sleepytime helped her dam Alidiva (Ire) (Chief Singer {Ire}) to the title of Broodmare of the year in 1997, while she is also kin to the multiple group 1-winning sire Taipan (Ire) (Last Tycoon {Ire}), the GII Louisville Breeders’ Cup H. and GII Rampart H. winner Oonagh Maccool (Ire) (Giant’s Causeway) and to the dams of the G1 Doncaster Mile hero Somewhat (Dynaformer) and this owner-breeder’s G3 Oh So Sharp S. winner and G1 Falmouth S. and G1 Sun Chariot S.-placed Altyn Orda (Ire) (Kyllachy {GB}).
