First Stakes winner for Hot Streak
Tweenhills’ first-season sire Hot Streak had his first Stakes winner over the weekend when Flaming Princess won a Listed race in France.
Flaming Princess had been Hot Streak’s second winner when successful at Nottingham on her debut in June before she finished a creditable seventh of 25 in the Gr.2 Queen Mary Stakes at Royal Ascot.
She was too keen in the Gr.3 Princess Margaret Stakes next time but returned to five furlongs to win the six-runner Listed Prix Cavalassur at Deauville on Saturday.
Flaming Princess was held up by Christophe Soumillon and showed an impressive turn of foot to get to the front, powering up the stands’ rail to beat fellow British raider Kemble. Flaming Princess is trained by Richard Fahey.
Flaming Princess changed hands for £20,000 as a yearling and again for £60,000 at the breeze-ups, where she was sold by Danny Benson’s Dunsany Stables to Matt Coleman on behalf of Peter Swann’s Cool Silk Partnership.
She was bred by Linacre House Limited out of Marju mare Qatar Princess, a half-sister to smart winner up to a mile and a quarter Hawksmoor. Qatar Princess had been a rapid breezer herself after which she’d been purchased by none other than our own David Redvers.
In other two-year-old news, Qatar Bloodstock Limited and Skymarc Farm bred Sunday's facile Leicester novice winner Surf Dancer out of Invincible Spirit mare Beach Belle.
