The Fonds European de l’Elevage (French EBF) was delighted to support the Listed Criterium du Fonds European de l’Elevage at Deauville on Sunday August 24th.
The 1600m two-year-old contest offered €122,000 in prize money, making it the richest race sponsored by the FEE in France.
The race was won by the Freddy Head-trained Medley Chic. The son of the Cheveley Park Stud stallion Medicean made all the running to score by a length and a half from Faithful Creek (Bushranger), trained by Brian Meehan, with the favourite, Light In Paris (Aussie Rules), in third.
Bred by Petra Bloodstock, Medley Chic was purchased by head for €130,000 at the Arqana August Sale for owner Olivier Thomas. The colt was already the winner of a 1400m conditions race at Deauville in early August in which he prevailed by a short head in a four-way photo finish.

In a change of policy from recent years, a larger proportion of the BEBF’s support will be directed to conditions races, fillies’ handicaps and Listed races. Previously, the bulk of BEBF funding has been directed to maiden races, but additional support will now be targeted at other race types. Full Story
