Cirrus Des Aigles romps in Prix Ganay

CIRRUS DES AIGLES (Corine Barande-Barbe/Olivier Peslier) landed his third Group 1 in impressive fashion in the Ganay, taking the lead early and slowly pulling away from his rivals to beat Giofra and Reliable Man with contempt.


Peslier took things up in the back straight and set a steady gallop on the winner, before injecting pace into the contest rounding the home bend to stretch the field.

Entering the home straight Cirrus Des Aigles was three lengths clear of his nearest pursuers and pulled further clear under nothing more than hands and heels urging from Peslier to win by eight lengths.

she is classy but not a proven gr 1. Reliable Man was working well for this but may not have been 100%. But, Cirrus des Aigles is a class act!
Cirrus Des Aiigles just didn't win the G1 Prix Ganay. He left a very classy filly that was previously unbeaten in stakes company in Giofra absolutely for dead by some 8 lengths. This horse just keeps getting better and better with age!! I've always thought it was too bad that CDA is gelded, because he'd be a force to be reckoned with if he was eligible to run in the Arc, IMO.
