Another notable winner for Havana Gold
The weekend brought another good winner for Tweenhills sire Havana Gold as his daughter Crohanne took her record to two wins from three starts in the Class 1 Prix Durban at Saint-Cloud.
Crohanne had built on her debut when winning at Lyon La Soie last November and she returned from a break to beat six rivals over the extended mile and a quarter in the Prix Durban. She showed the terrific attitude under pressure that’s become a key feature of Havana Gold’s progeny.
Crohanne responded very generously to come from just off the pace under Maxime Guyon for amateur jockey turned Chantilly trainer Mario Baratti. Crohanne is also owned by Baratti and was purchased as a yearling for just £5,500 by Joey Fallon at the Tattersalls Ascot Sale.
Crohanne was born and raised at Tweenhills and is out of Adalene, a winning daughter of longstanding Tweenhills mare Marine Bleue (dam of Gr.2 winner Military Law).
Crohanne is the second recent example of a useful winner by Havana Gold out of a mare by former Tweenhills resident Makfi, following the Brocklesby winner Chipotle.
