The ever consistent Coronet became her sire Dubawi’s 40th G1 winner on Sunday, 30 June when getting up to land the G1 Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud at Saint-Cloud. Placed no fewer than seven times at the highest level and narrowly denied in this race last year, the grey mare settled midfield under jockey Frankie Dettori before picking up in the final two furlongs. Staking a challenge on the inner rail, she gradually reeled in the leader to snatch victory by a short neck.
Owned and bred by Denford Stud, Coronet is a half-sister to G2 Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial winner and G1 Irish Derby runner up Midas Touch. They are out of the Listed winning and G2 placed Darshaan mare Approach, a half-sister to dual G1 winner Aussie Rules. Coronet is the latest G1 winner from this illustrious family that also counts Allegretto, Yesterday and Diamondsandrubies.
Dubawi is the sire of 112 individual Group winners with Coronet providing a 40th at the highest level. Performers this season including G1 Sheema Classic hero Old Persian, G2 Prix Hocquart victor Al Hilalee and G2 Middleton winner Lah Ti Dar.
