First For Treve

Dubawi son wins at second start

Qous, the first foal out of dual Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe heroine Treve, opened his account at Chantilly on Friday when landing the Prix du Mont Alta over 2100m by a short neck on his second outing.

The Andre Fabre-trained three-year-old was waited with at the rear of the five-runner field, but once brought to the outside by Vincent Cheminaud the colt stayed on well to claim the lead close home.

The Racing Post reports that there was a small but select field in opposition to the blue-blooded Al Shaqab homebred, with the Gleneagles colt L’Aigle in second and Edge Of Victory, the Kingman colt out of French 1,000 Guineas winner Beauty Parlour, back in third.

Qous is by Dubawi and is one of four foals produced by the wondermare Treve.

She also has a two-year-old filly by Shalaa, who has been given the auspicious name Paris and is also in training with Fabre, as well as a yearling filly by Siyouni, and she gave birth to a daughter of Sea The Stars in March this year.

Treve was among a host of star mares in Kingman’s 2020 book.

She ran 13 times for trainer Criquette Head and compiled one of the finest race records of recent times, winning the Prix de Diane on just her third start before going on to add the Prix Vermeille and her first Arc.
