Our industry expert unpicks the pedigree of Sunday's seriously impressive Prix du Jockey Club winner Vadeni.

As a dual Classic-winning son of Galileo, the first crops of champion two-year-old Churchill were highly anticipated.

Ladies Church was the first to score in stakes company with Vadeni joining her shortly after in the Listed Criterium du Fonds Europeen de l'Elevage at Deauville.

Doha: The Gr 1 Qatar Prix du Jockey Club, sponsored by the Qatar Racing and Equestrian Club (QREC), was run at Chantilly yesterday.

Carrying the prestigious silks of his owner and breeder the Aga Khan, the three-year-old colt Vadeni (Churchill) was spectacular when galloping to a five-length success in the top classic event.

Vadeni signed a magnificent eight success in the race for the Aga Khan, who, prior to Vadeni, last won the race with Darsi in 2006.

Waiting in the peloton, Vadeni took the lead at the post for the last 400 meters then left his pursuers on the spot 100 meters from the goal to win very easily without his jockey needing to solicit him.

With a clenched fist and arm raised to the sky, Christophe Soumillon said at Equidia’s microphone, with a smile on his face: “When I saw that William Buick absolutely wanted to go ahead, I waited. My horse took the lead a bit early on and went completely flat. That’s awesome, I didn’t think he was going to do that“.
