MAYYATELLO (FR) (Intello x Mayyadah), who is bred and owned by His Highness Sheikh Abdullah Bin Khalifa Al Thani, followed up on her convincing victory at Le Mans, France, last month with a Class 2 win at Nantes, France on Saturday, 4 July, evening. Trained by Henri-Alex Pantall, the three-year-old bay filly was running over a mile here for the first time, having run over 2,000m previously. The drop back in trip seemed to suit her and, under a positive ride from jockey Soufiane Saadi, she secured a neat win by ¼ length. The Pegase Bloodstock-owned and D. Guillemin-trained IPPLING (Penny’s Picnic), also a winner on her previous start, was the runner-up under Ioritz Mendizabal. The Mme Jean-Hugues de Chevigny-owned and P.de Chevigny-trained ROUGEGARDE (FR) (Red Dubawi) was a further short-head behind in third under Tony Piccone.
MAYYATELLO is by INTELLO (GER) and was bred by His Highness Sheikh Abdullah Bin Khalifa Al Thani at Haras de Victot. She is out of the INVINCIBLE SPIRIT (IRE) mare MAYYADAH (IRE), who was a Listed winner and Group placed for the same colours.
