Damson's son wins
his first Group 2

REQUINTO, by Dansili and out of the Queen Mary (G2) and Phoenix Stakes (G1) winner Damson, added the Group 2 Flying Childers Stakes to her Molecomb Stakes (G3) success at Goodwood.

A tough colt and a real sprinting type, he is in the Middle Park Stake (G1), but could remain at 5f and tackle his elders in the Prix de l´Abbaye (G1). He is the first Group performer out of the mare.

The Juddmonte sire has had 11 Group race winners this season, including the Matron Stakes (G1) winner Emulous.

Danehill line stallions took the first two races on the Doncaster card - the winner of the Mallard Stakes being Old Hundred, a gelding by Tiger Hill - while Saddler's Rock (Sadler's Wells) collected the Doncaster Cup (G2).
