Auteuil doubles for
Dom Alco and Martaline

AUTEUIL saw doubles for notable French jumps sires Dom Alco and Martaline on Saturday. While Martaline's oldest progeny are only five, Dom Alco is well-established on both sides of the English Channel, with Neptune Collonges and Grands Crus among his offspring.

Kaylin got the ball rolling for Martaline in the Prix Kashnil, a claiming hurdle over 1m7f. This was a first win for the
three-year-old, who raced twice on the Flat. He is the first foal of the Acetenango mare Kayza.

Si Tu Viens was also on the mark for the sire, in the Prix de Saint-Maixent, a chase for five-year-olds. He is out of J'y Reste, dam of top-class Willie Mullins-trained racemare J'y Vole.

J'y Reste is by Freedom Cry and won twice on the Flat and three times over hurdles. Si Tu Viens is her fifth foal to have raced, including a sister to J'y Vole, Jeanquiri, who won a Listed hurdle on her debut at Auteuil.

Tout Rouge, a Guillaume Macaire-trained son of Dom Alco, took the Group 3 Prix Fleuret, a four-year-old chase. This was his third win, having previously scored once over hurdles and in one chase.

Quicody completed the double for Dom Alco, winning the Prix Air Landais, a chase for five-year-olds and upwards. This was his fourth chase and sixth career victory. He is the third foal of Quicody, by Quart De Vin. Dom Alco also sired Rhialco, second in the Group 3 Prix Hypothese.
