DUBAWI supplied his 24th individual Group/Grade 1 winner on Sunday when his daughter Left Hand landed the Prix Vermeille at Chantilly.
Trained by Carlos Laffon-Parias and ridden by Maxime Guyon, the filly reeled in the leader Endless Time to take the contest by half a length.
The three-year-old hails from a family that has been nurtured by her owner-breeders, the Wertheimer Brothers', and is out of their Group 2-winning Singspiel mare Balladeuse. She is a half-sister to Listed scorer Bilissie.
Balladeuse herself is out of the Rainbow Quest mare Featherquest and is a half-sister to the Wertheimer's Group 1 heroine Plumania. Further back it is the family of Group 1 performers Groom Dancer and Falco.
Dubawi, a 14-year-old son of Dubai Millennium who stands at Dalham Hall Stud, was trained by Saeed Bin Suroor to win three races at the highest level in the National Stakes, Irish 2,000 Guineas and the Prix Jacques le Marois.
Since retiring to stud he has supplied a number of leading performers including Postponed, Al Kazeem, Night Of Thunder and Makfi.
He was also represented by another Group winner on Sunday when Shamreen landed the Group 2 Blandford Stakes at the Curragh.
First Group 1 win for Vadamos
Vadamos notched his first victory at the highest level later on the card when running out a one-and-a-quarter length winner of the Prix du Moulin for trainer Andre Fabre.
Owned and bred by Haras de Saint Pair, Vadamos is the fourth foal out of the Listed-winning Peintre Celebre mare Celebre Vadala. He is a half-brother to the winners Celenza and Vadanor.
Celebre Vadala is out of the Linamix mare Vadlamixa and is a half-sister to dual Group 1 heroine Valixir and to Vadaza, the dam of Group 1 heroine Vadawina.
Monsun, who died at the age of 22, won three races at the highest level during his career. Retired to stud, he became renowned as an outstanding source of top-class middle-distance runners.
Leading performers by the late son of Konigsstuhl include the Group 1 winners Manduro, Novellist, Shirocco and Samum.
