Normandy stud post for Cima De Triomphe

CLASSIC winner Cima De Triomphe will begin his stallion career next year at the Haras du Thenney in Normandy.

The five-year-old son of Galileo – who carried the silks of Japan’s
Shadai Farm owner Teruya Yoshida – will stand at a fee of €3,000.

Cima De Triomphe began his career with Bruno Grizzetti in Italy, where he won four races including the Derby Italiano, over the likes of Senlis and Voila Ici.

Later that season he finished a creditable ninth, beaten six lengths behind Zarkava, in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.

The following season he joined Luca Cumani's string in Newmarket, compiling some useful form, including when beating Conduit to win a competitive renewal of the Brigardier Gerard Stakes, and fourth placings in the Eclipse and Arlington Million.

Back in training with Grizzetti this year, Cima De Triomphe won two races.

Out of the Listed-placed Danehill mare Sopran Londa, Cima De
Triomphe is a representative of a conspicuously successful emerging cross: Frankel, Gile Na Greine, Roderic O’Connor and Teofilo are all also by Galileo and out of Danehill mares.
