Tribalist remains unbeaten in three Group races this year

Farhh colt holds on bravely to win G3 Prix Bertrand at Chantilly

Farhh’s four-year-old son Tribalist remained unbeaten in 2023 and the only horse to win three Group races so far in Europe this year, when landing the G3 Prix Bertrand du Breuil at Chantilly in France on Sunday, 18 June.

Trained by André Fabre and partnered by his regular jockey Mickael Barzalona, Tribalist jumped from the gates and soon displayed his usual trademark front-running style when he took up the lead which he held throughout the 1600m race. Quickening up with 300m to run Tribalist was challenged by Topgear but he wasn’t to be denied his third Group win of the year as he held on bravely to prevail by three-quarters of a length.

Tribalist now has four Black Type victories on his c.v. They include the Listed Prix Matchem at Saint-Cloud last year, followed this year with easy wins in the G3 Prix Edmond Blanc and G2 Prix de Muguet, both at Saint Cloud over eight furlongs. He was also placed third in the G1 Poule d’Essai des Poulains at ParisLongchamp last year.

Bred in Great Britain by Car Colston Hall Stud. He is out of the unraced mare, Fair Daughter (Nathaniel), who is a half-sister to G1 hero Crowded House (Racing Post Trophy) and Forest Crown, dam of G3-winner Forest Of Dean.

Farhh is also the sire of G1 Sun Chariot Stakes winner Fonteyn, QEII Stakes hero King Of Change and Royal Ascot G2 winner Move Swiftly. His son Dee Ex Bee was also the runner up in the G1 Derby and Ascot Gold Cup.
