Unbeaten son of Cracksman successfully steps up to Stakes level

Ace Impact is the impressive winner of Listed Prix de Suresnes at Chantilly

Cracksman’s three-year-old son Ace Impact remained unbeaten in superb style on Thursday 4 May when storming home to take the Listed Prix de Suresnes, run over 10 furlongs at Chantilly.

Jean-Claude Rouget’s charge was settled in mid division under jockey Cristian Demuro, before making headway with three furlongs left to run. Ace Impact picked up impressively in the closing stages to ease clear and win by a length and three quarters.

Ace Impact broke his maiden by three and a half lengths at Cagnes-sur-Mer back in January, before following up with another convincing win at Bordeaux le Bouscat in April. He holds entries in both the G1 Prix du Jockey Club and G1 Grand Prix de Paris later this year.

Bred by Mrs Waltraut Spanner, Ace Impact is one of five winners and now three Black Type performers out of the Stakes-placed mare Absolutly Me

Cracksman is now sire of four individual Black Type winners, including G2 winner Aloa. Another of his Stakes winners, Dance In The Grass, lines up in Sunday’s G1 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket.
