Notable first crop
double for Westerner

ASCOT Gold Cup hero Westerner was represented by his first stakes winner on Sunday when Elie Lellouche's Never Forget landed the Listed Prix de la Seine on the French Guineas undercard at Longchamp.

Her success comes just two days after Westerner's first runner over jumps, Katkovana, won the Listed Prix Wild Monarch at Auteuil for trainer Jean-Paul Gallorini.

The pair are from the first crop of three-year-olds by Westerner, who retired to stud as the winner of five Group 1 races. Although most effective at around 2m, the son of Danehill also defeated the likes of Bago, Shirocco, Pride and Motivator when second to Hurricane Run in the Arc. He stands at Castlehyde Stud for €5,000.
