Saiga, a three-year-old daughter of Teofilo, landed her first Stakes victory on Monday, 11 May in the Listed Prix Caravelle. Run over 2100m at Toulouse, the Anthony Crastus-ridden filly led near the line to record a narrow victory.
Bred by Al Shahania Stud, Saiga is the second foal of Champion juvenile Vorda, winner of the G1 Cheveley Park Stakes and G2 Prix Robert Papin in 2013. Vorda, who was placed in the G1 Darley Prix Morny, also has a yearling colt by Iffraaj.
Teofilo, who is covering this season at €40,000 Oct 1, SLF, has now sired 88 individual Stakes winners. Among his 16 G1 winners is Exultant, who enhanced his career earnings to more than €5,300,000 with victory in the G1 Queen Elizabeth II Cup at Sha Tin last month.
