Norman Court laughing after Sandringham win

Chantilly: Prix de Sandringham (Group 2), 1m, 3yo f

LAUGH OUT LOUD (f Clodovil - Funny Girl by Darshaan)

Bred by Norman Court Stud in Britain

A WEEK after breeding the Irish 1,000 Guineas winner Samitar, Wiltshire-based Norman Court Stud were celebrating again, this time as the breeder of Prix de Sandringham heroine Laugh Out Loud. Her victory came a day after that of another Norman Court-bred, Chilworth Icon, in the Woodcote Stakes.

Laugh Out Loud also maintains an excellent start to the month for Rathasker Stud's Clodovil - the Poule d'Essai des Poulains winner sired a new stakes winner when Tuttipaesi won the Listed Premio Alessandro Perrone at Capannelle on Saturday, the same day that other representatives Es Que Love and Cloud were each Listed-placed.

Purchased for 10,000gns by Emerald Bloodstock as a foal and resold to Hugo Merry for 30,000gns at Book 2 of the Tattersalls October Sale as a yearling, Laugh Out Loud is a half-sister to Listed Pinnacle Stakes winner Suzi's Decision (by Act One). They are two of four winners out of the placed Funny Girl, a half-sister to talented French hurdler Rombaldi.

Funny Girl has a two-year-old filly by Sixties Icon.
