Ascot Stud’s well bred young stallion Global View gained a further boost to his pedigree on Monday, when his relative Pretreville won the G3 Prix Bertrand du Breuil (1600m)at Chantilly.
Five-year-old Pretreville led from pillar to post when earning a first black-type score in September’s Listed Prix du Pont du Jour at Craon, his final start for the Jean-Claude Rouget stable, and made his first appearance for Pascal Bary in Monday’s G3 Prix Bertrand du Breuil Longines at Chantilly.Breaking smartly from an outer box to lead under restraint from the outset, the 10-1 chance was shaken up when threatened soon after passing the quarter-mile marker and extended his margin of superiority under urging inside the final furlong to easily account for Plumatic by 3 1/2 lengths, with 8-5 favourite Skalleti back in third.
“It’s the first time Pretreville has run under my name, but his previous trainer Jean-Claude Rouget has done a very good job with him,” said Bary of the bay, who won five from six last year. “He hasn’t been overraced and, despite being a 5-year-old, is like a brand new horse. He gives a lot in his work in the mornings and also gives a lot in the afternoons so I’m not surprised with the performance. He has gone up in class once again so we will now try him at a higher level in the [G2] Prix du Muguet.”
A son of Acclamation, Pretreville has now won seven of 10 starts. He is out of the winning Fusaichi Pegasus mare Pegase Hurry, whose dam Big Hurry is a half-sister to Round Tower Stakes winner Warrior Queen, the granddam of Global View.
This is also the family of breed shaping sire Storm Bird, whose progeny include Storm Cat, Balanchine, Indian Skimmer and Summer Squall.
A graded stakes winner at two and three, Global View is a son of the world’s premier sire Galileo and he has 22 lots on sale at the 2020 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale.
