First Stakes victory for son of Raven’s Pass

Pisanello strikes in the Listed Prix Omnium II

Raven’s Pass sired a new Stakes winner on Sunday, 15 March when his three-year-old son Pisanello landed the Listed Prix Omnium II. Run over a mile at Saint-Cloud, the Fabrice Chappet-trained colt was always travelling well before holding off the late challenge of The Summit.

Owned and bred by Haras d’Etreham, Pisanello is a son of the Peintre Celebre mare Painting, a half-sister to Group winner Beauty Is Truth, who is herself the dam of G1 winners Hermosa, Hydrangea and The United States.

The sire of an impressive 9% Stakes winner to runners, Raven’s Pass has had a G1 winner in each of the last three seasons. Royal Marine won the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere in 2018, Tower Of London became Japan’s best speedster when taking the Sprinters Stakes at Nakayama last year and Matterhorn has already won the G1 Al Maktoum Challenge R3 this season.

Raven’s Pass is covering this season at a fee of €10,000 Oct 1, SLF.
