Byword relative impresses in France

1st Aug 2018

Mauritzfontein’s G1 winning resident stallion Byword is from an outstanding family and the 2010 Prince Of Wales’s Stakes winner received yet another boost to his female line at Deauville on Tuesday.


Two-year-old Delaware (by Frankel) won impressively at just the second time of asking –just days after his half-sister Environs had lifted the Listed Prix de Bagatelle.

The pair were produced by the winning Oasis Dream mare Zatsfine –a half-sister to Byword himself.

Delaware, a ¾ brother to G2 Prix Eugene Adam winner Finche, made amends for a fourth place on debut when romping home to score by two and a half lengths over six furlongs.

His second dam is the outstanding broodmare Binche, dam not only of Byword and Finche but also four time G1 winner Proviso.

A daughter of Dansili, Proviso earned over $1.7 million with her nine wins including all of the G1 Frank E.Kilroe Mile, Just A Game Stakes, G1 Diana Stakes and G1 First Lady Stakes.

Delaware holds an entry for next year’s G1 Investec Derby.
