Ridden by Christophe Soumillon, the filly won by just under a length beating metropolitan winning Procrastination and Nova Hawk who ran 2nd behind Immortal Verse in the Group 1 Coronation Stakes at Ascot this year.
This was the fillies third win earning her connections €27,500 (A$37,192) in prizemoney plus an additional €17,325 (A$23,429) in owners’ premiums. From 5 starts Faustina has never been unplaced with two 3rds in addition to her 3 wins, earning OTI a total of 106,000€ (A$143,737).
Faustina was purchased from the 2009 Arqana Deauville Yearling Sale for 90,000 € by MAB Agency and is trained by Englishman John Hammond who has trained two Arc winners in Montjeu and Suave Dancer.
FAUSTINA has certainly added value to herself by becoming a stakeswinner and is entered in the ARQANA December Breeding Stock Sale. She is sure to attract a lot of attention!
