British win for Byword sister

25th May 2017

Adjective, a half-sister to Mauritzfontein’s promising young sire Byword, got off the mark when scoring her maiden victory at Yarmouth on Wednesday.
A daughter of Dansili (and full-sister to multiple G1 winner Proviso), Adjective, who was making her British debut for new trainer James Fanshawe, stayed on strongly in the 2300m handicap to justify favouritism by one length.


Adjective is the second recent winner for Byword’s dam Binche, whose Frankel son Finche made a stunning winning debut at Deauville recently. The highly rated Finche holds an entry in the G1 Grand Prix de Paris –a race won previously by Byword’s sire Peintre Celebre.

Binche, a former Broodmare Of The Year, is a daughter of champion 2yo and prominent sire Woodman, whose daughter Woodman’s Girl produced outstanding shuttle sire More Than Ready.

A top class racehorse, whose victories included the G1 Prince Of Wales’s Stakes at Royal Ascot, the handsome Byword got off the mark as a sire when his son Talk Wrench recently scored over 1000m.

France’s Highweight Older Male of 2010, Byword was also runner up in the G1 Prix d’Ispahan and third in the G1 Juddmonte International.
