Teofilo’s excellent weekend continued on Sunday, 25 October when his three-year-old son Subjectivist landed the G1 Prix Royal-Oak at Longchamp. Sent straight to the front under jockey Joe Fanning, Subjectivist showed great tenacity to repel all rivals, eventually winning by two lengths.
It was Teofilo’s second top-flight winner in France this weekend after Gear Up, also trained by Mark Johnston, in the Criterium de Saint-Cloud.
Bred by Mascalls Stud, Subjectivist is a half-brother to Group winner Sir Ron Priestley and out of the Stakes-placed mare Reckoning.
Teofilo has now sired five G1 winners in 2020, a figure only beaten globally by his own sire Galileo. Exultant was named Hong Kong horse of the season with two of his five top-flight triumphs coming this year, while Tawkeel became one of France’s leading three-year-old filly with a wide-margin win in the Prix Saint Alary. Donjah won her first G1 in the Preis von Europa in August preceding Gear Up’s thrilling triumph yesterday.
